Our Lady of Guadalupe Thanksgiving Baskets
November 22, 2017



Thought you might like to see some pictures of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy Earlyact Club’s Thanksgiving food drive. The students from each grade collected enough food to provide 20 baskets of dinners to local families and St. Joseph’s Social Service Center.

Our Club provided financial assistance for the purchase of the turkeys. Great job by the Students and Administration!

Weekly Meeting
November 1, 2017



Taste of Elizabeth Chairman Doug Harris and Rotarians Phyllis Reich and Ken Richuso presented Thank You Certificates to Jonathan Phillips and Greg Waga of Groundwork Elizabeth (Come Grow with Us Gardens)


and Karen Kontos, owner of the Garden Restaurant for their participation in our hugely successful fundraiser.



We were also joined by Rotarians Vincent Spada (Cranford) and Todd Young (Union) who presented our Club with a $500 check from Spencer Savings which will be used for our Dictionary Project.

We will soon be distributing 2200 dictionaries to students in Elizabeth and Hillside so Spencer Savings contribution is greatly appreciated. Accepting were project coordinator Rich Esperon and Treasurer Jim Duffy.


A very interesting program today by Rich Esperon on “E-Waste”. We learned how much toxic material is in the electronic items we use every day like smartphones and computers and where it goes when we dispose of these items. (Some very disturbing images.)
