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 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.
