Morris Plains Rotary Club sponsored an essay contest for the fourth graders of Morris Plains schools.   Each child was asked to write about citizenship, the essays were read and the winners were selected:    Katie Flanagan and  Aiden O’Neill were the winners from the Borough School and Jessica Zebick was the winner from St. Virgil Academy.  Committee  person LouAnn Fellers presented each child with a $50 gift card after their essays were read at the Rotary Club meeting on Friday, June 12.   Congratulations to all the winners!  

The Rotary Club of Morris Plains was founded in 1973 to serve Morris Plains and Morris Township. Today we are comprised of over 60 members—men and women who want to make a difference in their community. 





The mission of Rotary is to provide service to others on a local, regional and international level. Membership in Rotary is open to men and women who work or reside in the area where the club is based.
