Our second annual Bikes For The World collection will be held on Saturday October 24th from 9AM to 1PM at the Blawenburg Reformed Church on Route 518 in Skillman.  For more information, click here.
We will be meeting at Cherry Valley Country Club outside on the 2nd floor patio which can be accessed by going through the main entrance and turning left and going through the bar area.  Masks must be worn at all times when inside the building, as well as, outside if you are within 6 feet of someone else.   A limited breakfast will be available.  We will also send out a Zoom link to the membership so that all can participate.  Our speakers this week will be Lori Bernardi and Wendy Andreotti from 1st Constitution Bank who will be discussing the impact of COVID on the banking industry.
Club News
If our weekly meetings are the fuel that causes our club to do great things, then our weekly speakers might be considered the spark plugs.  The speaker is a hallmark of Rotary meetings around the world with the intention of exposing club members to a wide variety of ideas, organizations, and issues. 
Last week came the news from Rotary International that Africa has been declared polio free.  The last endemic country, Nigeria, was certified as Polio Free.  The only nations left to go are Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Eradicating polio has been a longtime mission of Rotary and it is exciting to note that we are getting close.  For more info click here for a brief video.
The Scholarship Committee presented the 2020 Scholarship Awards to eight Montgomery High School Seniors at a social distanced ceremony outside at Belle Mead Garage.  And (drum roll please) the scholarship recipients are...
 
 
I recently had a membership inquiry from someone who lived just outside the Montgomery Twp line who wasn’t sure that precluded them from being a member of our club.  While we are the Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill, there is no requirement that our members reside or work within the boundaries of Montgomery Twp or Rocky Hill.   Of course, it doesn’t make much sense for someone to join our club if they don’t have some connection to the area but don’t rule out potential new members from surrounding towns.
