Girl Scouts deliver HOPE for Haiti

Kevin Hersh, President, Rotary Club of the Caldwells, Darion Triplett, Kathy Malkinski, Kelly Malkinski, Kendall Gregory, Nelson Diego Checo, Daniela Dellanno, Marianna Colavita, Rotarian Gerardo D’Emilio.

The girl scouts of troop 2090 of East Hanover delivered clothing, food and toys to Terzako Furs in Caldwell, NJ on May 15, 2010. The donation was for the people of Haiti. The girls arrived at 1 PM, unpacked the vehicles and Nelson "Diego" Checo, Rotary's Dominican liaison in the Dominican for Haiti immediately started packing for a 3.30 PM shipment. Fifteen boxes or an approximate 2,625 lbs of goods were then shipped for distribution in Haiti.

After the delivery, Marianna Colivita, project leader, presented Kevin Hersh, President, Rotary Club of the Caldwells with a check for $275 collected by the Girl Scouts. Marianna also presented Kevin with an application for a matching grant from Kraft Foods for an additional $275 bringing the total donation to $550.

Kevin Hersh, Diego and Rotarian Mike Kambourakis gave the girls a brief history of the project and Rotarian Gerardo D'Emilio brought out photo books to show the girls how we are all making a difference to so many lives.

A big thank you goes out to Monte Erenkrantz of the Livingston Sunrise Rotary for making the arrangements to get the delivery to The Rotary Club of the Caldwells for "The Haiti Relief Effort."

The girls could not stay long, they had to leave for a scheduled softball game. We hope they Won, they deserved it. THANK YOU GIRL SCOUTS!

Enjoy a Great Day of Golf or Become a Hole Sponsor for a Very Worthy Cause!

The Rotary Club of the Caldwells invites one and all to our 39th annual golf outing at Ballyowen on Tuesday 6/22/10. Link here for details about signing up as a golfer or a hole sponsor

The Ballyowen golf course is set in a beautiful surroundings with a layout that has something for golfers at all skill levels.

Golfers have an opportunity to win a 2010 Chevy Camaro courtesy of Konner Chevrolet. Of course, everyone has an opportunity to win many other prizes that will be awarded during dinner.

Come and join us for a day of fun! Golf, dinner, and amenities in a beautiful setting with friends...all for $175 per person. We promise you'll have a great day... regardless of your score.

You'll also be helping us to help so many people because all proceeds will be used to fund local and international charities. The Rotary CLub of the Caldwells supports many local charities providing scholarships, sponsoring a handicapped children's camp, helping families in need and local first aid squads. We are also actively involved in relief projects in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, funding life-saving operations for children from third world countries, providing hearing aids to indigent children, and so much more.

You can still participate if you're not a golfer or don't have the day off by being a hole sponsor. A $100 hole sponsorship gets you exposure to some of the nicest and most influential people you'll ever meet.
