We enjoyed an interesting presentation by Ed Henry, Manager of the Wallkill Wildlife Refuge. We had participated in their recent Refuge Day by directing traffic in the parking area. Ed's presentation covered what the Refuge is and what its purpose is. It was informative to hear about the differences between a Refuge and a Preserve, the most significant being that hunting and fishing are permitted in a Refuge - with the proper permits, of course.

Last week, we handed out the dictionaries at Rolling Hills and Cedar Mountain Schools. This is always a fun event as the kids really look forward to it. Pictured below are our intrepid Rotarians and the kids from Vernon schools.

Thanks to Lisa Dalessio, Teresa Vihti, and Vinny Zinno for their assistance in the distribution of the dictionaries. Thanks also to David Gornstein for chairing the Dictionary Project, for several years now. Thanks, David.
In other news, we have rescheduled the visit by District Governor George Mitola to our club for October 30.

On September 25, we had an interesting meeting with Reenee Casapulla, who is the Recycling & Marketing Coordinator for the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority. Who would think that talking about recyclying could be so interesting, but she some interesting statistics and, more than that, she talked about the underlying issues facing Sussex County in its quest to increase the percentage of waste that is recycled. She also some interesting and informative tidbits for those that are regular users of the facility down in Lafayette.

Thanks to Vinny Zinno and Karl Meyer for helping to set this evening up.

Coming on Sunday is the Refuge Day at the Wallkill Wildlife Refuge. Thanks, in advance, to all our volunteers.

Thank you goes to Eddie Rolando for coordinating the duffle bags for the United Way. Kevin Colman also pitched in to help get the bags down to Newton to the United Way.
