Rahway Hosts Special Olympic Day

RAHWAY—It may not have been in downtown Beijing, but on Friday, May 16, downtown Rahway was its own Olympic Village. The Rahway Recreation Center hosted the sixth annual Olympic Day for Special Needs Children.

Over 70 athletes from Rahway’s elementary schools and 50 Rahway High School volunteers filled the Rec Center with laughter and the spirit of healthy competition. The day would not have been a reality without the support of the Rahway Board of Education and several members of the Rahway community.

Commerce Bank and the Kiwanis Club of Rahway sponsored the event by providing t-shirts, RSI provided the trophies and Century 21 JRS Realty of Rahway/Clark provided gift bags to each volunteer. The Junior Service league of Rahway not only provided the funds for lunch, but also prepared over 120 meals.

The Blue Tri service club of Rahway High School provided an Olympic “Bounce House,” while each Olympian left the fun-filled day with a goodie bag filled with items from the Rahway Education Association, Pepsi-Cola, WaMu, AFLAC and Commerce Bank.

Members of the Rahway Junior Service League take a break from preparing over 125 lunches at Olympic Day 2008. They also help sponsor the day through a monetary donation. Pictured are M. Peter, E. Buckley, N. Rack, D. McFarlane, J. Mociekas, V. Symarcta and C. Keefe.
