Hackettstown Rotary Club Food & Clothing Drive Very Successful
The Rotary Club of Hackettstown in conjunction with Norwescap and Johnson Dodge Chrysler held their annual food and coat drives on Saturday, November 19th at Panera Bread on Route 57 in Hackettstown, NJ.
Expectations were high on a nice and sunny day with temperatures close to 70 degrees making for a pleasant time outside for the Rotary members.
More than 120 winter coats were received and the food drive received 90 frozen turkeys weighing 1,464 pounds exceeding last year’s donations. Dry and can goods weighing 1,328 pounds, and donations of cash and checks in the amount of $1,155 which will be used to purchase an additional 16,170 pounds of food where Norwescap can provide to those in need.
A total of 14 members of the Rotary worked the food and coat drive and members of Norwescap and WRNJ Radio were present to make this project a success.

The Hackettstown & Washington Rotary Club’s honored the
Hackettstown / Warren Hills Annual Offensive & Defensive Game MVP’s
The annual luncheon to honor the most valuable players was held at Centenary University on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. The spirit and tradition was alive and well between the two wonderful communities, symbolized by the outstanding play on both teams in the 91st Hackettstown / Warren Hills game on November 4th. Both teams played hard, exhibiting both sportsmanship and class. Jim Sheldon, Hackettstown Rotary President stated “on behalf of all Rotarians in both communities congratulations went out to the Blue Streaks on the win and the Tigers on an outstanding effort.”
Warren Hills Regional Head Coach, Larry Dubiel stands with great pride to honor the “Blue Streaks” most valuable player of Offense going to Ryan Gill and most valuable player of Defense going to Matt Dufner.
Hackettstown Head Coach, Carl Robinson stands with great pride to honor the “Tigers” most valuable player of Offense going to Matt O’Brien and most valuable player of Defense going to Kyle Connelly.
A tradition began in 1986 where the winner of the game gets to keep the beater board at their school for the year. The beater board is a board, which consists of the history of each teams wins. This was to promote good sportsmanship, positive community support and positive school pride. This year the beater board went to the Warren Hills Blue Streaks.
