What We Do

Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs. Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

Our original club charter was issued by Rotary International on May 13, 1960. This charter was issued in the name of the Madison Township Rotary Club. The document was signed by then International President Harold T. Thomas and by then General Secretary George R. Means. We were sponsored and assisted in organizing by the South Amboy Rotary Club and our Charter Night was held on Thursday evening June 30, 1960. Our first president, Tom Browne, in the classification of Auto Sales Manager, led our first meeting at the Pumpkin Shell Restaurant on Route 9. This eventually became Lily Langtrey and has since been replaced by a 7-11. Our meeting places over the years have been held at the Pumpkin Shell, Old Clare & Coby's (Route 9 Sayreville), Dorian Manor, Pier 34 (Route 34), Clare & Coby's (Route 34 & 9), Howard Johnson's (Sayreville), El Quixote (Sayreville), Don Quixote's (Matawan), Ocean Blue (Sayreville), and Buttonwood Manor (Matawan). We have always been a dinner club and continue to meet on Thursday nights at 6:30 P.M.

The highlight of the health fair was large number of student volunteers helping from the set up to taking vital signs, doing EKGs and many other services. IHCNJ dedicated committee members and volunteers and community activist Mahesh Advani and Mahesh Chitnis of Lions Club and his young volunteer team worked very hard to make this event a great success for the fifth consecutive year at Durga Temple.

RI Presidential Appointment For PDG Adrienne Bzura

Past District Governor Adrienne J. Bzura, of the Rotary Club of Old Bridge-Sayreville, has been appointed by Rotary International President-Elect John Germ to serve as a member of the RI Constitution & Bylaws Committee. This three-year commitment will begin on July 1st and continue through June 30, 2019. The decision by RIPE Germ was made following a thorough review of more than 1,000 applications received from clubs and districts worldwide. There was only one opening available on the Committee. The other 3 members are from India, Korea, and Columbia. Adrienne is not only the first Rotarian from District 7510 to serve on this committee but she is also the first woman in Rotary history to do so. Further, Adrienne has also been informed that in 2019 she will serve as the Chair of the C & B Committee at the Rotary International Council on Legislation. This also constitutes two remarkable “firsts” in RI and District history. Such exceptional service to Rotary isn’t new to Adrienne. In 2000-01, she served as the first woman District Governor of District 7510. She is the only Rotarian from District 7510 to have served on Zone Foundation Committees, first as a Permanent Fund National Advisor followed by a term as a Major Gift Advisor. Now she is the first Rotarian from our district to be honored with a Presidential Appointment.
