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.

Rotary Club of Asbury Park members served as the Caring Cooks for the Ronald McDonald house in Long branch on July 9th 2019, serving up grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, sausage, salad with watermelon. The Ronald McDonald House hosts families who have children being cared for at Monmouth Medical Center. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, the Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost. By cooking a meal,  our Rotary volunteers made it just a bit easier for families to focus on their child's health.  Great job!
President Brian Mullins thanks our speaker, Mr. Alan Stein from the Vorhees Twp. breakfast Rotary Club. Alan got lost coming to our meeting so his talk was brief but informative. He spoke about “Josh the Otter” program detailing preventative measures for infant drowning. He will try and come back next May for a full presentation.
This week's meeting was Sean's last as the 100th President of the Rotary Club of Asbury Park. We know that Sean's family has a long history of service as Rotarians, and we say Thank You for a memorable year. We look forward now, to supporting Brian as the 1st President for our 2nd 100 years -  Good Luck Brian - we will work together to make it a great year!
Our projects and fund raising work were shown to be worthwhile when we had a chance to meet the exceptional young students from our local high schools receiving Rotary Scholarships.  The recipients are Talula Dechev of Neptune H.S. and attending University of North Carolina; Olivia DelCuore of Ocean Twp H.S. and attending Brookdale Community College; and Jesus A. Santos Reyes of Asbury Park H.S. and attending Brookdale Community College.  Jesus is the recipient of the New Jersey Natural Gas Scholarship, presented by Tom Hayes - Director of Customer and Community relations for NJNG.  All the students showed not only high academic achievement but much time involved with service to their community -- one of the requirements to receive the Rotary Scholarship.  The program was masterfully presented by our MC HJ Abrecht. Congratulations, also to Roy and Tama for their first year as Co-chairs, and a big thank you to all the members who served on the Scholarship Committee!
