Club Stories
The Montville Rotary Club is proud to announce that our member Joe Yuppa was awarded the honor of Rotarian of the Year from District 7470. 
 
Joe Yuppa has been a Rotarian in the Montville Club since 1995. He has held various positions such as president and treasurer over the years and has stayed dedicated to the Montville Rotary Club even after moving away to Stanhope many years ago. He has been organizing our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast, for countless years. 
 
This yeas the Montville Rotary Club has focused on the growing drug addiction problem our society is facing. We were able to donate $1,000 to the First Aid Squad to purchase Narcan, a drug that reverses the effect of an opiod overdose.  We visited the Market Street Mission in Morristown to learn more about the support the Mission is giving to homeless and addicted men. And we now listened to speakers from New Pathways Counseling. 
The Montville and Boonton-Mountain Lakes Rotary Clubs got together and visited the Market Street Mission in Morristown. The Market Street Mission ministers to the homeless, helpless, and hopeless in Northern NJ, by meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through a structured program which enables them to lead responsible, productive lives. We were especially impressed by
During a recent visit to the Montville Rotary Club Montville’s Mayor Jim Sandham and Peter Greendyk, President of the Montville First Aid Squad, informed to the club about our town’s seven heroin and opiate deaths in 2016 which made Montville the number one town in Morris County with drug related deaths.
As a community that pledges to put “Service Above Self”, Montville’s Rotary could not just stand by and observe without doing something to try to put our grain of salt to an ever growing problem in the community.

 
The Montville Rotary Club is now a member of the Boiling Springs Savings Bank Community Alliance Program. This gives us the opportunity to earn money to continue to put "Service Above Self". We earn money entirely through the participation of our supporters. Please support us, it’s simple.
 
 
On Wednesday March 1st Strongman and Motivational Speaker Eric Moss was the Speaker at our weekly meeting at the iHop at 7:30 am. We did not know what to expect. Motivational speakers - we are used to them and them well. But we had never had a StrongMan. We were impressed! Eric Moss told us his story and how he changed from a kid in school, bullied by his classmates, to a Strongman. How mentors in his life taught him important life lessons that he was willing to share with us. And then he showed us that these life lessons can really empower you - they empower him to bend steel, nails, wrenches and more. 
Dave Scott, Executive Director of the Market Street Mission, shared breakfast today with the Montville Rotary Club. He informed the members of the club that the Market Street Mission was started in 1889 (!) and has ever since been reaching out to the impoverished, homeless, addicted and marginalized in Morris County. We learned about the Emergency Services that Market Street Mission is providing as well as their work in the Thrift Store and especially the Life Change Recovery Program.
Carlos Restrepo, member of the Montville Rotary Club now for some years, told us this week about his trip to Everest Base Camp and Island Peak. He captured his audience with his photos and stories about people living in remote places of the world who carry everything they need up huge mountains on their back. He told us about the Yaks that can only live in high altitude and whose dung is being used to warm the houses. 
Eat Pizza and do good! This Thursday, November 3th, you can eat at the California Pizza Kitchen at the Willowbrook Mall and support your Montville Rotary Club. 20% of what you spent will be donated to us - and we will use it to provide grants to students at the Montville Township High School. 
Jen Graeff from the Sheep Hill Astronomical Association joined the Montville Rotary Club for their breakfast session on Wednesday, October 26. She revealed "the best kept secret of Boonton": There is an Astronomical Observatory in Boonton. And the observatory is open to the public on the third Friday of each month at 7:30 pm.
