Rotary on Hercules’ Radio Show

It was a pleasure being on Hercules’ show talking about our Charity Golf Tournament to support research for LGL Leukemia Sept 21. You can sign up for the golf tournament & dinner or just dinner at TenaflyRotaryClub.org/golf/.

I was also  on with Steve from the Rotary Club of Parkridge who was telling us about their 5K Run & Walk. You can sign up at ParkridgeRotary.org

Rails to Trails

The Tenafly Rotary is investigating the possibility of partnering with Rotary Clubs north of Tenafly to help replace the unused track from Tenafly to the State line.  Plans and permits for light rail end in Englewood. This means for the next couple of decades the rail line going through Tenafly will be unused. Until CSX has a permited use for the line the possibility exists to turn the tracks into a walkway/bike path. Rails to Trails has helped with this in numerous communities. The Tenafly Rotary Club met with Shepard Grinker of the Tenafly Bicycle Workshop to explore the benefits of the program.

Elections – Tenafly Rotary Invocation

Elections

Oh, dear lord, the election is behind us. I believe that most Rotarians voted, a higher percentage than the population at large, because Rotarians care about what happens in the world. All of us felt good about some of the results, and all of us felt bad about some of the results. That’s the way life is.

But Lord, we thank you that we live in a land that has elections, where if we work hard we can change things, or we can leave them the same, depending on how we vote.

It doesn’t matter whether you are conservative, liberal, radical, or whatever. It will be up to the public to vote for you or some other person. Some of the worst candidates get elected, and some of the best candidates lose. But it isn’t always that way.

All of us know that Rotary does not take sides in political matters. As individuals, we have wonderful Rotarians who are Republicans, and wonderful Rotarians who are Democrats. To those of you ion politics, “God bless you.” You are the people our fellow citizens, who keep democracy working.

Lord, we thank you for all those wonderful people who care enough to take sides . . . who are actively participating in our democracy.
