Weekly Meeting
April 25, 2018



April is Donate Life Month, so it was a perfect time for the Rotary Club of Elizabeth to hear a report on organ donation from the NJ Sharing Network. Ametra Burton (left), Philanthropy and Foundation Programs Coordinator, and Sharing Network Board member Elizabeth Stamler, spoke to our club about the state of organ donation. Here in NJ alone there are over 4,000 people awaiting transplantation, and in Elizabeth, 65 people are on the wait list for a life-saving organ. Organ donors can be any age, which means that we all should check that box on our driver’s license!


Club President Art Lobdell thanks Ametra and Elizabeth for their presentation.

An incredible program today presented by Alyssa Reiner of Jewish Family Service and Girsh Sorkin, a Holocaust survivor.

We heard Girsh’s amazing story of his family’s escape from the Nazis in the 1940’s. It was an incredible journey.

We got to meet, up close and personal, a member of Jim’s collection and learned many interesting facts, i.e. snakes are venomous not poisonous .
