Four days from now I'll be sitting on my bike, setting out for a 112 mile ride. The 2.4 mile swim will be behind me, and I'll hopefully be ignoring the prospect of the 26.2 mile run around Mirror Lake. Thanks to everyone who has already donated. I reached my $5,000 goal in under an hour back on May 23. That was the day Christine entered Sloan-Kettering hospital to get a massive dose of chemotherapy, followed by stem cell replacement two days later, to treat multiple myeloma. She was diagnosed last fall, right around the same time my friend Bill Capuzzi sent me a simple text: "up for an Ironman?".

I'm a huge fan of Montgomery Township and Rocky Hill, of the swath comprised of Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer and Middlesex counties, of Jersey City and the Jersey Shore, and really all things New Jersey. I've lived here for 21 years, both boys were born at Princeton Hospital, and have been fortunate to have neighbors who moved here and raised their families here and are still here.

Last week I presented a Report Card on the Club and how we were doing. The Governor told me that he never saw a club give itself a report card, and he liked the idea. If anyone missed it, let me know and I will send it to them directly. Overall, I think we are doing very well.Read more
The men and women of Rotary volunteer their time and resources to help others in their communities and throughout the world. The object of Rotary is service - to the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotary, the largest worldwide service organization, is universally known as “an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.”
Since its founding in 1990, Montgomery-Rocky Hill Rotarians have offered their personal time to people in need and for projects in Montgomery and Rocky Hill and have raised hundreds of thousands for worthwhile causes, primarily through our signature fundraiser, the Run With Rotary.
