We kicked off 2024 with a spirited Super Bowl Party at Urban Air Adventure Park, where we hosted nearly 100 homeless individuals and others in need. We were able to provide hot food, free haircuts, clothing, toiletries, and more to those facing hardship in our local area. A big Thank You to our partners One Ocean County, and the Jewish Federation of Ocean County, as well as our community engagement liaison, Avi Kotler and many volunteers in our community who donated food, clothing and hygiene products and their time to help make this the most successful party in it’s 5 year history. 
We are grateful for the support of our sponsors and volunteers who made this event possible. It was incredible to see so many different groups come together to give back and help those in need. A special shout out to Rabbi G and the owners of Urban Air Adventure Park in Toms River that enabled us to use this location for the party so children could enjoy playing on the trampolines while the adults enjoyed the big game.
Join us for the 32nd Annual Sailfest NJ on September 9th in Island Heights from 10am-10pm! It's the largest Sailing Festival in New Jersey with over 15,000 attendees, 125 street vendors, top quality food trucks, live music all day, kids rides, a 50/50 raffle, beer/wine bar, a 9-11 Reflection Ceremony at noon, and the year's best party along Toms River! Special thanks to our top Fleet Admiral Sponsor, Lester Glenn Auto Group. 100% of all proceeds provide scholarships and support community needs through the Rotary Club of Toms River Charitable Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501c3. More at SailfestNJ.com
New 2023-24 Toms River Rotary President Dion Johnson (on the right) received a warm welcome from members and Assistant District Governor Steven Neuner (on left). Dion is an experienced Financial Professional and Co-Owner of Bluewater Agency Insurance. He has a Masters in IT Management from Colorado Technical Institute. His community involvement includes the Lakewood and Greater Toms River Chambers, BNI, 21 Plus, and MOCEANS. In his spare time he enjoys auto racing, computers, and volunteering to help others. 
Past Toms River Rotary President Chris Christiansen, CEO of Air Process Systems, (shown on right) has received the District 7505 Vocational Service Award for 2023. The Award recognizes how Chris uses his professional skills in both business leadership and environmental stewardship to solve local problems, improve his community, to train his employees, to mentor young people and to set a vocational example to other Rotarians. His leadership skills have been especially visible as the co-chair of “Sailfest New Jersey” – a festival which attracts over 15,000 visitors to the Toms River area. He has truly “paid it forward” through his leadership and advocacy of Rotary's Vocational Service Ideals. The Award was presented by Assistant District Governor Steven Neuner (on left).

  • The Emily Glendinning Scholarship - Alyana Frias

Several of our members met at Shelter Cove Beach to gather sand samples for Save Barnegat Bay's microplastic research project, followed by dinner at JoeBellas Restaurant. We were relieved to find a very small amount of microplastics locally despite the growing impact these plastic particles are having throughout the region and globally.  

Toms River Rotary is proudly celebrating over 70 years of service to the greater Toms River Community. We’ll be grooving to lots of 70s music, inducting new club officers, and enjoying a wonderful dinner. Community leaders, Rotary supporters, other Rotarians and guests are welcome. RSVP by Jun 27th

Welcome to the newest Rotary member in the world - Ms. Sakirat Salu, Vice President of Saba Home Care Inc. Shown also are President Mike Frankovich (right) and Board Member Dion Johnson (center)
Featured speaker Phillipe Cousteau inspired members with amazing stories of his grandfather Jacques Couteau, videos about damaged coral reefs, recovering ecosystems and areas where sharks are thriving. He shared wonderful memories about his family and their love of the outdoors. He talked about efforts happening - and still needed - worldwide to restore ocean environments, about the importance of teachers in educating today’s youth, as well as his appreciation for Rotary’s efforts in supporting environmental projects globally.  The meeting was hosted by Ocean County College to benefit their foundation.  
Members of Toms River Rotary were proud to support National Wreaths Across America Day to honor service members who served in our military and often sacrificed their lives to preserve our freedoms. Similar wreath­-laying ceremonies occur at more than 2,500 locations to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget. We will never forget.
