Elizabeth Rotary President Art Lobdell
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Elizabeth!

Service above Self is the motto of Rotary, and this motto is clearly evident within the membership of the Rotary Club of Elizabeth. Our members are dedicated to many worthwhile projects that help our fellow man locally and internationally. This past year 2 of our Elizabeth members went to West Africa to help distribute the polio vaccine to children in need . Ending polio is a key project for Rotary International.

The Elizabeth club is also committed to feeding the hungry, housing the homeless and being very involved in helping the youth of Elizabeth. We are proud to have given over $450,000 in scholarship money to assist Elizabeth High School students achieve their dreams of a college education. Every year our club presents more than 2000 3rd graders in Elizabeth with their very own dictionary. It might sound like a small thing, but The Dictionary project has brought huge smiles to children for many years. We assist the Salvation Army, The YWCA/YMCA, Community Access and many other organizations that are entrenched in the community providing help to those in need.

We raise money with a fabulous pancake breakfast and our biggest fund-raiser of the year, The Taste of Elizabeth, held every October, has become one of the premiere events in the state with over 40 local restaurants providing the most delicious foods, desserts, and drink in New Jersey.

Our club also believes in FUN! We enjoy fellowship while bowling, playing poker, attending baseball games, fishing, partaking in cigar night, or simply dining out. As one of our long time members recently said, " if you like to have fun and you like to help people, the Rotary Club of Elizabeth is for you."

We hope to see you soon at one of our meetings or events.

Yours In Rotary,

Art Lobdell, President
