Thank you, Bernardsville Rotary!

For the past several years, members of the Bernardsville, NJ, Rotary Club have donated and grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for guests at the picnic following Miles for Matheny, our annual fundraiser and community event held every April.

On November 13, Janice Kriegman, Matheny development associate, attended the Rotary Club’s monthly meeting at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ, and presented club president Dr. Brian Wallace with a special Certificate of Recognition in appreciation of the group’s support.

Picnic in the park

The Bernardsville Rotary will be manning the grills, like they did last year.

The Celebration Picnic at this year’s Miles for Matheny will be held in Liberty Park in downtown Peapack instead of at Matheny. Food and refreshments will be provided throughout the day. The Friends of Matheny, Matheny’s auxiliary group, will sponsor the “Breakfast of Champions” and the Bernardsville Rotary Club will again be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. In addition to food supplied by Matheny and its sponsors, some local businesses, such as Cesar’s Corner Deli and Dominick’s Pizza, will be offering food for sale.

All funds raised at Miles for Matheny, being held Sunday, April 22, will help support the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry, which provides medical, dental and therapy care to Matheny’s inpatients and to people with disabilities in the community. Major Miles sponsors are: Poses Family Foundation; Affinity Federal Credit Union Foundation; Archer & Greiner, P.C; BP Fueling Communities; WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880; Partlow Insurance Agency; Peapack-Gladstone Bank; and Porzio Bromberg & Newman, P.C.
