Hanover Rotarians shucked and cooked corn for the Camp Merry Heart Service Club Day Aug. 8 at Camp Merry Heart, Hackettstown.
Each year, on the second Wednesday of August, the camp holds its annual “Service Club Day” celebration; a way of saying “thank you” to all the supporters throughout the year, and an opportunity to introduce the camp to new friends.
The event began with a carnival for the campers provided by Rotarians and friends, followed by a barbecue dinner prepared and served by Rotarians, and culminating in a “thank you” ceremony to honor those who provided support throughout the previous year.
Hanover Rotary prepared the corn for the barbecue dinner. The corn was provided by Ort Farms in Long Valley.
Camp Merry Heart serves handicapped children and adults.
In the past, the Hanover Rotary built a pavilion and provided camperships for worthy children.
The Hanover Rotary is always looking for additional members to help it serve the community. The club meets for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on every Thursday at Bin 37 at the Shoprite on Hanover Avenue in Cedar Knolls.
