The Flags for Heroes project is back! Flags for Heroes is designed to honor and recognize the many heroes in our lives – veterans, first-responders, teachers, parents, front-line Covid healthcare workers, and the many essential workers who serve as an inspiration to us all.

We will again be having our Thursday weekly meeting outside under the pavilion in Van Horne Park in Rocky Hill at 7:30AM (access via the light at Benjamin Blvd by the Burger King on Route 206).  Food and drink will not be provided but feel free to bring your own food and drinks if you prefer.  Masks and social distancing will be required.  We will also send out a Zoom link to the membership and try to patch people in so that all can participate.  If the forecast calls for heavy rain, we will move the meeting strictly to Zoom (an email will go out the night before).   Our speaker for this week will be Kevin Wortham from Minding Our Business which focuses on developing entrepreneurship in the youth of Trenton.
Club News
At our weekly meeting last Thursday, we held a brainstorming session to come up with some new fundraising ideas for this Rotary year in addition to our Flags For Heroes project.  As I mentioned last week, the pandemic wiped out all our major fundraising events.  This year we are dipping into the funds held in our Foundation investment accounts to fund our Giving Budget but we want to mitigate the need to have to do this again next year if the Run With Rotary doesn’t happen next Spring. 
 
Kevin Lynch has proclaimed Save The Date for this year's Installation Dinner!!!  That date is Thursday Sept 17th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM at Cherry Valley County Club (please note it will be held outside).  Details to follow.

On April 3rd, the Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill and the Montgomery Business Association teamed up to feed our front line hospital and emergency workers while also supporting small, local food establishments. The project was dubbed, “COVID-19 Support – Grab & Go Lunches for Frontline Workers.” 

The program came to an end on Friday June 19th. We made deliveries on 68 days (6 days a week) by a volunteer driver. Each delivery included at least 50 Grab & Go lunches prepared by a local food establishment. Deliveries were made to one of 3 hospital locations: RWJ Somerset, RWJ New Brunswick or Penn Medicine Plainsboro. We were also able to purchase sweet treats from a local baker and chocolatier that we included with meal deliveries and shared with Montgomery Police, Fire & EMS workers. Members of the community also donated drinks, chips, cookies to the local food establishment to include with the Grab & Go meals. Many a food establishment added extra meals as a thank you to the frontline workers. A local Girl Scout Troop provided thank you notes for hospital workers that we also delivered.
