EWB-USA Rutgers + Summer + Rotary

Hi there, hopefully everyone's summer has been enjoyable and fruitful. As you know, we are always running, working and constantly focused even throughout the summer. This includes our focus on one recent undertaking: meeting with our local New Jersey Rotary Clubs of Rotary International! If you don't know of Rotary International, it is a great organization of service clubs, known as Rotary Clubs, located all over the world.

EWB-USA Rutgers would like to individually spotlight both the Paramus Rotary Club and Flemington Rotary Club. At each club, we met with and then presented for Rotarians. It turns out that both presentations were very successful in building bonds with our local New Jersey Rotary Clubs. Special thanks from EWB-USA Rutgers members Elizabeth Silagi, Ryan Kretch, Brian Goodacre and alumni Colin Warnick who all presented at either club.

Paramus Rotary ClubIn addition, a special thanks to Paramus Rotary Club for donating $2,000 to our Guatemala Project after our presentation in July, which came just in time before the Guatemala Project's Second Implementation Trip. We successfully implemented our Guatemala water supply project for the community of NSCI this trip and are awaiting start-up. To learn more, see the Guatemala page or the travel blog.

Thank you, Rotary International, you are awesome!

University-Wide Awards of 2011
We attended the Year-end Awards Reception at the Visitors' Center on Busch to receive some awards presented by Rutgers President McCormick. We received the Rutgers University Human Dignity Award for our dedication to diversity in the communities we work with and our openness to al types of students, and the Rutgers Class of 1962 Presidential Public Service Award for our dedication to quality service in our international communities.

After years of work with EWB-USA since 2005 and receiving these awards this year in addition to the EWB-USA Premier Chapter Award, we would like to thank the deans, faculty advisors, professional mentors, sponsors and donators, and all chapter members who have had any part in getting us to this state of achievement.

Golf Outing & Rutgers Day Open House
Within the past few days, we held our last annual fundraising event as well as attended the School of Engineering Open House.

Our 2nd Annual Golf outing turned out to be as successful as it could be, under the heavy precipitation that occurred about noon on April 28th. The schedule called for a 9-hole, shotgun set-up, lunch and beverages in the afternoon, and raffles and giveaways. Thanks to Gary, our director of development, the steering committee, EGC Allocations, the Rutgers Golf Course, and our sponsors who were all essential to the execution of the outing.
