Asbury Park Rotary Celebrates 100 Years!
 
On Saturday, April 13, 2019 The Asbury Park Rotary celebrated its Centennial Celebration
at Deal Golf & Country Club, Deal, NJ. 
 
This event was a celebration of 100 years of service to Asbury Park and Monmouth County communities.  
 
Thank you to all of our sponsors!  The event raised over 425,000 for our Scholarship Program and our local veterans projects.
 
 

Scholarship Program 

Each spring we invite local high school students from surrounding areas to participate in the scholarship program. This program is a vocational service activity of our club that assists and encourages high school seniors of Asbury Park, Neptune, Ocean Township and Academy Charter High Schools to pursue a post-secondary education with an emphasis on service to the community. Each year, we award scholarships to students of the four high schools. 
 

Asbury Park Rotary Foundation Veterans Program 

Throughout the year the Asbury ParkRotary Foundation sponsors and supports several events honoring the hundreds of veterans in our community. Events include: Bus Trip to Washington, Veterans Day Luncheon, and Memorial Garden in Asbury Park.
 
Stories of Asbury Park Rotary in Action

We're collecting adult and kids bikes and sewing machines to send to Tanzania, Gambia and Guatamala.  Do your part to put unused bikes and sewing machines to good use in the developing world.

Bikes should be rust free.  No children's trikes, but bikes with flat tires in need of some repair are accepted.  Portable sewing machines should be in working order.

For more information contact Sean 908-884-067

About Wreaths Across America.
Wreaths Across America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to continue and expand the annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery begun by Maine businessman Morrill Worcester in 1992. The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at hundreds of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.
