Celebrating 75 Years


Our cocktail meeting was a lovely night at Capunanos featuring Katherine Highnet on the harp. The appetizers and wine were accompanied by several varieties of pizza and soft drinks. I look forward to seeing you at our cocktail meeting this month. It is an excellent opportunity to bring in a friend or colleague interested in learning more about our club.

Thank you to all who participated in this event.

For the 18th consecutive year, The Rotary Club of Princeton has supported the University Medical Center at Princeton's Blood Donor Program.  Rotary later developed the "9-11 Blood Drive" in memory of all victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks, especially those from Princeton and the neighboring communities.  Through this program, Rotarians donate blood on a regular monthly schedule.  To learn more about the Rotary Club of Princeton's "9-11 Blood Drive" and other Rotary Programs, please visit the other pages on this Website or write to:

Pre-School Literacy Project

Rotary Club of Princeton Continues
its Ongoing Literacy Project
Princeton Nursery School

In support of Rotary’s commitment to literacy, the Rotary Club of Princeton has continued with its Literacy Project with the Princeton Nursery School for many years.

Princeton Nursery School is a small, private, non-profit, educational child care facility that provides for the developmental needs of children between the ages of 2 and 5 years. The School currently serves 44, primarily Hispanic and African American children. Since its founding in 1929, Princeton Nursery School’s mission has been to provide a positive and supportive preschool experience for families at an affordable cost.

Rotary Club Past-President, Karen Woodbridge shares the contents of one of the
books donated to the children by the Rotary Club of Princeton

Throughout the month of March, members of the Rotary Club, including some spouses, read to children ages two and a half to five at the Princeton Nursery School. The teachers at the school chose the books for the Rotarians to read from among the children’s favorite titles. The Rotarian readers had the opportunity to read to both small groups and full classes.

Many of the Rotarian readers expressed their delight at how much they enjoyed having the opportunity to interact with the children. As a result of their initial experience, several of the members of the Rotary Club, who read to the children as part of the month of March Celebration of Literacy, are continuing to read to the children on a regular basis. The Rotary Club plans to support this project as part of its on-going commitment to literacy.

Rotarian and Past-President, Dr. Marcia Bossart explains to the children what
they will find in one of the books that was donated to them.

As part of celebration of Literacy Month, the Rotary Club also gave each child at the Princeton Nursery School a book to take home. Each child in the three year old class received a copy of It Begins with an A and each child in the four to five year old class received a copy of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, both titles having been chosen by the teachers at the Nursery School. The books were personalized with each child’s name on a label in the front of the book.
