CRANFORD ROTARY PROJECT BENEFITS PATIENTS
AT TRINITAS REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
A community service project orchestrated by the Rotary Club of
Cranford resulted in the donation of over 100 movie DVDs to both young
and old patients served by Trinitas Regional Medical Center.
Approximately 125 DVDs will augment the recreation program at
Trinitas’ Child/Adolescent Behavioral Health inpatient and outpatient
program, and the hospital’s Residential Treatment Center. In addition,
senior patients served by the Hospital Elder-Life Program (HELP) at
Trinitas will benefit from the DVDs. The HELP program works to prevent
the cognitive and memory decline often experienced by seniors during
hospitalization.
“Each month, the Cranford Rotary Club runs a different community
service project designed to help people close to home,” explains Maureen
Strazdon, President, Rotary Club of Cranford. “This project was easy –
everyone has old DVDs that are gathering dust,” notes Joseph Carney,
Chair, Cranford Rotary Service Projects, who added, “We placed a
collection box in the Cranford Community Center and then put out the
word. Soon, the box was full.”
Adds Strazdon, “Rotary’s motto is Service Above Self, and our projects
reflect that focus on service, particularly to our community. We felt that
Trinitas exemplifies that same emphasis on service to our local area, to
both young and old, and so they were a natural choice."
The Rotary Club of Cranford was established in 1923 and provides
diverse programs that support education, and other community services.
Past beneficiaries of Rotary support include Cranford Schools and
Scholarship Recipients, Cranford First Aid Squad, Cranford Family Care,
Cranford Cerebral Palsy League, Cranford United Way, Cranford
Historical Society, Cranford PAL and the Rotary International Foundation.
The Cranford Rotary Club meets Thursday morning at 7:45am at the
Cranford Community Center. Any business or professional, active or
retired, is cordially invited to attend our meeting. For additional

Strazdon (left) and Service Project Chair Joe

Thomas, Elder Life Intervention Clinician at

CRANFORD DAR VOLUNTEER AT VETERAN’S CENTER
The Volunteer Service to Veterans Committee of Crane’s
Ford DAR teamed up with the CDC Community Theater of
Cranford and the Musical Club of Westfield to entertain
hospitalized veterans at the VA Lyons Medical Center in
Bernard Twp.
Maureen Monroe from the Musical Club of Westfield

member, Barbara Krause and the CDC of Cranford.
DAR Veteran Committee chairwoman and chapter Regent,
Mary Leonard, planned and organized the afternoon along

Wegmans the DAR was able to purchase snacks and drinks
for the veterans.
The Crane’s Ford DAR has been volunteering with annual
parties for the Lyons facility veterans for over 22 years. The
CDC Outreach Group has been collaborating for the past 12
years. The DAR is a national service organization of women
who have ancestry to participants of the American Revolution
War, both combat and those who provided goods and services
to the American cause. Prospective members may visit the

TRINITAS DESIGNS PROGRAMS TO SERVE ITS MILITARY VETERAN PATIENTS
The specific medical and mental health needs
of veterans are being addressed through a series
of programs offered by Trinitas Regional Medical
Center in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Thanks to the support of the Thomas Glasser
Foundation, Inc., Trinitas participates in a special
National Hospital and Palliative Care
Organization (NHPCO) and Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) program that offers
enhanced patient care and other services to
veterans. To address the needs of current veterans
and the growing number of veterans in the next
10 to 20 years, the interface with the VA and the
NHPCO gives veterans care with the dignity,
recognition, and gratitude they deserve.
"The new grant-funded program supports the
ongoing measures Trinitas uses each day to meet
the health care needs of service men and women
while they are under our care," explains Magie
Cruz, RN, MSN, Director of Palliative Care.
"This program is another way that Trinitas
doctors, nurses, and other health care
professionals members, as well as our volunteers,
respond to the needs of veterans, their families
and caregivers. It's a natural complement to our
existing Palliative Care program and a fitting way
to treat our valued veterans who deserve
everyone's respect and gratitude."
Johanna Thomas, Intervention Clinician of
Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP), at Trinitas
works closely with Trinitas staff and volunteers to
identify vets when they are admitted for care.
"Upon admission to the hospital, we ask patients
if they are military veterans and if they'd like
information about veterans' benefits. We are also
proud to give them a formal acknowledgment
of their service to our country."
The Behavioral Health and Psychiatry
Department of Trinitas makes a valuable
contribution to the mental health needs of
veterans who suffer from a range of mental health
issues, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
(PTSD), all of which negatively impact their
quality of life. Linda Reynolds, Director of Adult
Outpatient Services, explains: “In partnership
with the Elizabeth Veterans Administration (VA),
Project Pride for Veterans is a counseling and
case management program. One of our two
licensed social workers is an active reservist and
our Advance Practice Nurse is retired from the
Air Force. Their common bond with veterans is
so important to the positive patient outcomes we
strive for in this program. The Project Pride
program provides individual, group, and family
psychiatric services designed to reduce
symptoms and improve the quality of life for
veterans and their families. Ultimately, in
partnership with the VA, we direct our energies
toward helping veterans live the life they want
and deserve.”

BOOK CLUB APPROACHING 100TH BOOK READ
Our Book Club, Books Unite Friends, was
founded in October 2006 at the Roselle Golf
Club. It consists of nine golfers, mainly teachers,
nurses, and businesswomen! Each member
recommends one book for the calendar year. It is
highly suggested that this person first read the
book to eliminate "word of mouth" or rely on the
opinions of Best Sellers Lists! After a lively
respectable group discussion each person then
rates the book from 1 to 5 as well as share their
final comments and insights! It should be also
noted that monthly meetings are conducted in a
restaurant which eliminates all household and
dining pressures for a hostess!
For further information contact Fran Housten at
908-709-7272 or email [email protected]
After reading 86 books, East of Eden by John
Steinbeck received our highest rating of a perfect
5.0! Our holiday meeting in December
encourages each member to bring a mystery gift
that related to the previous year's literature!!!
Over the past nine years this fun challenge has
truly reflected the intellectual creativity of the
group. We are anxiously approaching our 100th
book and are considering several ways to
celebrate our extremely accomplished endeavor.
Our bonded group is always on the search for that
one special "WOW" book!!!! Therefore, we
always look forward to other Book Club inputs
and suggestions!!!

CRANFORD VFW POST 335 PARTICIPATES IN THE 240TH BIRTHDAY
OF THE MARINE CORPS AT THE GOVERNOR’S MANSION DRUMTHWACKET
On a beautiful for quite windy spacious skies,
Saturday, November 14th the annual
commencement for the Marine Corps Birthday
was honored. For the past fifteen years the
presiding Governor of New Jersey has been
honoring these brave service members.
Moreover, the past five years, retired Gunnery
Sgt. Mario Monaco has served as Master of
Ceremony and program coordinator along with
his brother Sgt. Dominick Monaco. This entire
occasion was carried out with military precision
and respect to those Marines who have fought our
countries many battles, in the air, on land, and sea
protecting the citizens of this great nation.
The event began with a bugle call to sound
attention by retired Sgt. Mark Paradis of the
Marine Band, San Diego promptly at 1200 hours.
A brief welcome was given by the Master of
Ceremony with a crowd pleasing reassurance to
the swiftness of the proceedings due to the cold
gusty winds. Chaplain Wilfredo Rodriguez;
Veteran Coordinator for Rutgers FOCUS
Wellness Center requested the audience allow a
moment of silence for the terrorist attacks in
Pairs. He then gave a heartfelt prayer for all those
who had gone before us and those who are still in
the fight for us. This was followed by the parade
of color guard lead by Chief Warrant Officer
Nick D` Andrea and an inspiring rendition of our
nation’s anthem by Vietnam veteran, Sgt.
William Mead. With the breeze still threatening
to topple the Fallen Comrade Table, Doc Jay
Boxwell Jr.; Commander Cranford Post 335 NJ
VFW POW/MIA Chairman began his ceremonial

honoring of the ‘missing man table’ by
symbolically inverting the glass onto the place
setting. At the same time, Bagpiper; Garrett
McKenzie of the FBI accompanied by drummer
L/Cpl Mike Magliacane performed a very
poignant version of Amazing Grace. It brought
tears to many eyes in the audience, remembering
loved ones who are no longer with us. They
played as the Cranford Commander continued the
traditional table ceremony script and explanation
of the ‘battlefield cross’.
Afterwards, the ceremony turned to a lighter
mood by introducing the Distinguished Guest,
Staff Sgt. Rose Katz Brotzky who gave everyone
a chuckle in describing her days in Corps. As did
Mr. Jack McGeevey in receiving Morris County’s
Unsung Hero award when he stated, I’m so glad
to be here considering I have one foot in the grave
and one on a banana peel.” He went on to express
his gratitude for the award, a watch, and for the
US Marines. At the ceremony’s conclusion, the
traditional cutting of the cake was performed by
the young at heart Marine; Sgt. Rose Katz
Brotzky at 29 years of age and Marine L/Cpl Ben
Gurary from Golf Company 2/25 at the ripe old
age of twenty-two! Sgt. Mark Paradis closed the
ceremony with a solemn and patriotic rendition
of TAPS as guests and Marine league detachment
members exited the area for the chow line.
During the rest of the day the halls of the
governor’s mansion were filled with laughter,
solidarity, and stores of military service. In one
room, various detachment members from across
our state were swapping combat memories while
appreciating the architecture of the manor where
they were enjoying their buffet luncheon. So
many camera phones and flashes you would have
thought it was a premiere to a Hollywood movie.
But these are no actors or actresses; these are the
few, these are the proud. In another room, several
Marine men and women were in a tight circle
singing all three verses of the Marine Corps
Hymn, with loud voices, with strong hearts, with
determined spirits. Because as the adage goes,
“You don’t join the Marines…You become one!
OOHRAH!
VFW COMMANDER’S CORNER
November was a very busy month for the post.
We hosted our very first community flag
retirement ceremony. This ceremony was the first
of what I hope to be of many ongoing
partnerships with the community. The event was
a collaboration of Boy Scout Troops 75 and 80,
the Police and Fire Department Honor Guards as
well as the VFW Post Color Guard. Students
from Hillside Ave School, Mr. Maloney's class
also participated in the ceremony as well
providing the Pledge of Allegiance.The event was
well attended by members of the community and
other VFW Posts. Garwood Home Depot
Donated the Fire Pit for the Ceremony and
Dryer's Farm provided refreshments for after the
event.The event was a respectful way to retire
flags from our community. The large flag from
Eastman Plaza was also retired after its long
service to our community. We raised a new 15 by
20 foot flag to serve as the center piece of our
community’s plaza.
November also saw the VFW hold its annual
Veterans Day Breakfast. This is a stable in the
VFW calendar of public events that support our
local veterans. This event was well attended by
many local veterans. The Key speaker was
Command Master Chief Ron Herman from Naval
Weapons Station Earle. The Master Chief spoke
of his military service and what Veterans Day
means to him. The event was capped off by our
local leaders from the town, county and state
reflecting on what the impact veterans have had
on the community at large. I was also proud to
present Past President of our Auxiliary Noreen
Cannone a Certificate of Appreciation for her
years of outstanding service to not only the VFW
but to the local community. We as members of
the Post were also present at our local schools on
Veterans Day talking to students about our
experiences and how it has an impact on us today.
Vincent Dooley a Marine and an Iraq veteran was
a guest speaker at Orange Ave school, While Joe
Delgrippo, Hanif Davis and Myself spoke to
students at the high School about our
experiences. All of our visits were well received
by the students and faculty at our local school.
The visits were rewarding to both the students
and us!!! We look forward to the holiday season
and please do not forget our troops deployed
overseas… I wish you all happy holidays and fair
winds and following seas…..
