Volume 60   Number 1
Welcome to the resurrected Hartman Gazette, the official Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Wyckoff-Midland Park. The Bulletin is named after John Hartman (1924-2002) a long time member of the Club and a PDG for District 7490. 
This issue highlights our very busy June, 2019.
June is Scholarship Month

Joseph Furlong, Maria Torraca, Maggie Bowers, Grace White, Helena Van Vliet, Catherine Francica, Allison Sassano, Natalie Kologrivov, Meaghan Healy, Bryn Bogan, Emma Lein, Angela Tashik, Sebastian Fox, &
Leah Tashian.
Another Triathlon - Another Success
June 15 saw the running of the 36th Annual Triathlon, sponsored with the Wyckoff Family YMCA. Once again the weather was perfect, and our volunteers turned out in record numbers.
This year was also a Family Affair for one of our newest members. “TriSteele”, a three-generation family team entry. Ray Steele (72) of Wyckoff, son Kris Steele (48) and grandson Lucas Steele (14) of Ramsey have enjoyed the camaraderie of training for the event (and did very well). 
This year’s Triathlon (swim 0.5 mi/bike 20 mi/run 5 mi) will also hosted a Duathlon where individual athletes and teams biked 20 miles, and finished with a 5 mile run.

Club Installs New Officers
The weather held off the evening of June 29 so that the Club could hold its annual Installation Barbeque. Assistant Governor Ron Fraioli installed our own Paul Platek as Club President for a second year, and administered the Oath of Office to Paul, as well as to Benita Herman and Virg Nahas. It was a great party.
