The Rotary Club of Roselle-Roselle Park was chartered on April 30, 1923 and since that time has supported many local, as well as, international organizations, charities and projects.  Members of the club, lead this year by Paul Mickiewicz, include a diverse group of people who live/lived or who own businesses in Roselle, Roselle Park and Linden.  
 
In Roselle, several years ago, we supported YMCA's SPLASH WEEK which introduced Roselle elementary school students to pool safety, beach safety, boating safety and basic swimming skills. We support Camp Letico Girl Scout Camp on a ongoing basis.   
 
In Roselle Park we initiated Backpack, in cooperation with the Community FoodBank of NJ, at Robert Gordon Elementary School providing meals for needy students on weekends.  We also support the Boy Scouts.  
 
For high school seniors in Roselle Catholic, Abraham Clark and Roselle Park High Schools we give college scholarships and honor them with our Student of the Month Service Above Self Award. We also send four students each year to Rotary Youth Leadership Weekend at Drew University. 
 
In Costa Rica we funded books for libraries at Belen d Carillo's middle school and high school with the assistance of Peace Corps Volunteer and Roselle Park resident Britany Stromko.
 
Over the years, the club supported the libraries, first aid squads, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, WW I and WW II Veterans Memorials, youth sports, police and fire departments, battered womens shelters, Camp Letico Girl Scout Camp (in Roselle), Boys and Girls Club, Boys and Girls State, Union Couty Amateur Radio Association and holiday food baskets.  The club also sponsors students who participate in Rotary Youth Leadership Academy and the Youth Exchange Program as well as awarding scholarships annually.  
 
Internationally, the club has supported Bother Paul's Leprosy Colony in India, orphanages in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, SOS Children Village in Austria, well projects in Senegal, the Tagum Hospital in the Philippines, International Youth Exchange, Group Study Exchanges.
 
Club members make personal donations annually to Polio Plus, Rotary International's polio eradication program, and has contributed over $160, 000 to the Rotary Foundation through annual giving.  The Rotary Club of Roselle - Roselle Park tops the list of per capita giving to the Rotary Foundation for Rotary District 7510's 38 clubs.
