Simone Campbell sworn in as new Florham Park Rotary President 

The Florham Park Rotary Club has a new President.

Simone Campbell was officially sworn-in during the club’s recent weekly meeting on Friday, July 15. Performing the honors to fulfill the role was Past District Governor Shelby Rhodes. Also in attendance was Mayor Mark Taylor. 

 

Campbell first got involved in Rotary 21 years ago when she was invited to the Kingston Jamaica Rotaract Club – the junior arm of the Kingston Rotary Club. She joined the Florham Park Rotary Club in 2005 with her sponsor Karen Zeigler, the late District Governor, by her side.

“I chose Rotary because of my desire to serve my community and assist in nurturing and caring the needy,” Campbell said. “I believe my contribution of service will assist the effort to eradicate some of the problems that have plagued our global community.”

 

She served as the club’s secretary in 2021 and was voted as President by her fellow Florham Park Rotarians earlier this year.  Campbell is also a Certified Public Accountant.

 

This October, Campbell will preside over the second annual Halloween Dog Parade and Costume Contest on October 15, 1-4pm, by the Florham Park Gazebo. 

 

The initial Dog event was one of the many successful projects presided over by Past President George Gregor.  The event will raise funds toward next year’s Rotary Scholarship for Florham Park seniors in high school for exemplary volunteerism in the community, and will be hosted by the Rotary and by Pets Supplies Plus.

The Florham Park Rotary brings together men and women of all walks of life who join together for projects that benefit humanity both locally and around the world, and have a good time doing it.  The Rotary is an inclusive organization that provides humanitarian services and welcomes members regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation or national origin. 

Breakfast meetings are held every Friday morning from 7:47am – 8:50am. The meetings are hybrid, i.e., attendance is in person at the Florham Park Diner and via Zoom.  Visits by local residents and businesses are welcome.
