Press release from Rotary Club of Red Bank

In a recent luncheon at Navesink Country Club in Middletown, The Rotary Club of Red Bank marked its 95th annual officer installation ceremony, by swearing in Michael DeNofa as the organization’s new president. The owner of Shrewsbury-based IOP Communications, Inc. will lead the Rotary for a one-year term that began on July 1.

A Rotary member since 2012, and a business leader with 20 years experience as founder of a full-service printing and promotional branding firm, DeNofa also brings a record of public service to his new post, having served as a Councilman in the Shrewsbury Borough for seven years.

“Service is what Rotary is all about,” DeNofa said at the installation luncheon. “The dictionary defines service as ‘contribution to the welfare of others.’ Our club serves a beautiful and spirited community here in Monmouth County, New Jersey, but Rotary reaches around the world. The opportunity to make a difference is the lives of people who need our help is truly an honor.”

At the end of his speech, DeNofa thanked his fellow Rotarians for their service and commitment to the club and said, “As we move ahead during the next 12 months, let our hands be the hands that help those who truly need our help… and let’s remember these three words: Service Above Self.”
