Chuck finally did it after being friends with many of us and after several years of helping us behind the scenes. Chuck is married for 45 years to Mary Ann, was a member of another service organization for 20-25 years and said that he  finally reached a point in life where his time allowed him to join us and he “is happy to be a part of it” He’s lived in town for 40 years, has 4 kids and 4 grandkids. He began his career as a police officer for ten years, then switched to office supply marketing and then into communication videos for corporate events and serves as a consultant.  Welcome Chuck!

WHEELS OF HOPE,” OUR WHEELCHAIR RECYCLING PROJECT: We have picked up 24 wheelchairs towards our goal of 50 for the year. PV Rotary is working with Joni and Friends to collect, refurbish and deliver wheelchairs to other countries. Please let your friends and neighbors know of our effort. If you have a non-electric wheel chair that is no longer needed, it may be dropped off at Physical Therapy Services, 715 Newark Pompton Tpk., Pompton Plains, New Jersey 07444. Contact: Eric Jackowsky 973-835-6115. If you need Pequannock Valley Rotary to pick it up, please contact: DougCook123@optonline.net 973-809-1502 Some living alone do not feel comfortable in having strangers come to their homes, so Erick will arrange for one of the women from his office to make the pickup!

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights.

A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
