"Now is the time to step up you have wanted to go, but have had to put it off. Go on a trip of a lifetime, changing the world while you're at it." -Tim Eustace
When Kevin Williams, founder of the Kenya Project, died suddenly on June 22, the community of Maywood was guilt stricken. But submerged for several days was aburning questions - what happenes to MRC's 12-year old Kenya Project, readying for a final visit in 2016?
Within a few more days a firm answer came from state Assemblyman Tim Eustace, Kevin's partner for over 30 years "The project will go on for now," he said. "We hope to keep it going." The next trip will be early in July. Eight people have already indicated they will go. A planned visit by three committee members was rescheduled and carried out. They also met with Rose, sister of Rotary's Mercy Purity, a travel agent who has been very helpful. Mercy will continue with the Kenya Project. Tim is hoping for a surge in public response. Rotarians can describe the appeal to friends. Several thousand dollars have been already received in memory of Kevin.
The Maywood Rotary Club participated in the Annual National Night Out in Maywood held at Memorial Park on Tuesday, August 4. National Night Out is an event hosted by police departments all over New Jersey to promote crime and drug prevention awareness. According to the National Association of Town Watch & National Night Out website, the night out "enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances." Maywood Rotary distributed free popcorn to all happy Maywoodians who attended this event.

They are Marie Said, Alexis Holmes, Nikayla Barnaby, Sean Grimsland and David Tram.Following their RYLA experience, the group were guests at a Maywood Rotary lunch meeting held in the Maywood Inn where they each described their exciting week at RYLA as a true life-changing experience.L to R : Marie Said, Alexis Holmes, Nikayla Barnaby, Sean Grimsland and David TranPhoto by : TMB Photography
The Maywood Rotary Club volunteers to feed individual men and women who are homeless at the Bergen County Shelter on River Street in Hackensack. Members cook trays of beef stew at home and bring it to the shelter. They then served the individuals with stew, bread and butter, apple sauce and mixed fruit cup, coffee, and iced tea. The event hosted 3 times a year is appreciated by about 125 people who come for the meal and is most satisfying to the club members as they exemplify our motto of "Service Above Self".
