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).

Saying Goodbye

Last Wednesday, the Rotary Club said goodbye to our member Emir Turkes. 
Emir is relocating to London to continue his doctoral studies in Neuro Sciences at the University College of London.. Over the next three years Emir will be doing research on Dementia/Alzheimers and how it begins. Ultimately the goal will be to find a cure.
Emir joined our club almost 2 years ago, and his Rotary experience was started in Japan as Rotary Scholar. He joined the Roteract club of Tokyo West. Emir has already visited the Kensington Chelsea Rotary Club and anticipates becoming a member very soon.
We wish him all the best and hope he comes back for visits.
