Fanwood-Scotch Plains Rotary Weekly Meeting @ Stage House Restaurant
Jul 25 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm

Join us any Wednesday for Lunch

At the Stage House Inn, Park Avenue, Scotch Plains

If you would like to make a difference in the community and learn more about Rotary, you can attend a Wednesday lunch meeting at 12:15 pm at the Stagehouse Restaurant in Scotch Plains.   For more information, you can visit their website at www.fsprotary.org or follow them on Facebook.
Luncheon, with fellowship and a speaker, often a community leader with an update on themes of interest to the local communities or bearing on charitable activities that receive or seek Rotary support. We deliberate new ways to serve our community. We laugh. We re-examine ourselves at each weekly meeting, recalling the Rotary “Four Way Test” of the things we think or do:

  • Is it the truth?
  • Is it fair to all concerned?
  • Will it build good will and better friendships?
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

We break up promptly after 90 minutes to enable our members to resume meeting their clients’ needs and business responsibilities.

Imagine Seeks Volunteers @ peer grief support center located in Mountainside, New Jersey
Jul 27 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss seeks individuals for our July 27-30th, 2018 volunteer facilitator training session.
Imagine peer support groups are the main source of support for grieving children and families in Union County and beyond. Groups are facilitated by trained adult volunteers who attend a 32-hour training and quarterly continuing education programs.  Volunteers come from all walks of life and need no special background other than a willingness to listen and the ability to be with children and adults in pain without trying to fix, solve problems, or give advice. No prior experience is necessary. Volunteers must be 21 years or older. Volunteers serve as companions and loving listeners for those who are grieving.
“As our programs continue to grow, so does our need for additional, highly trained facilitators,” said Mandi Zucker, Imagine Program Director. “There is a great need for grief support in our community — over 700 children annually will lose a parent to death in Union County. Over 260 children and adults from almost 50 NJ towns are currently participating in our programs every two weeks at Imagine.” Volunteers say the training is “life-changing” and a wonderful opportunity for learning about themselves and how their own losses have affected the way they grieve and how they support others.  People that complete the training also leave feeling empowered to be a supportive person to people grieving any type of loss
Imagine is a free year-round peer grief support center located in Mountainside, New Jersey serving children age 3-18 who have had a parent or sibling die, with concurrent support groups for their parents or guardians.  Support for children and teens living with a parent or sibling with a life-altering physical illness is also available. Free year-round support groups are also available for young adults who have had a friend, sibling, parent or other important person in their life die, or who have a parent, sibling or friend living with an illness.
If you are interested in learning more about the upcoming training scheduled for July 27-30th, 9 AM – 5 PM daily, or about Imagine, please contact Mandi at Mandi@imaginenj.org.
