Bradford Day, Esq
My name is Brad Day and I’ve been retired for nearly four years. My wife Becky and I have enjoyed traveling and now, more than ever, playing golf together. I am active in the Lions Club, the world’s largest service organization, and had the privilege of serving as a District Governor in 2016-2017. I was sworn in while attending the International Convention in Fukuoka, Japan. Last year, we travelled to Italy and France for a few weeks to enjoy some time together before staying in Milan which hosted the convention. I serve as the Secretary of the Belvidere Lions Club as well as the Global Leadership Team Coordinator for the 1,350 Lions in 59 clubs across northern N.J. Our motto is “We serve.”
I underwent open-heart surgery 11 years ago and now serve as a heart-to-heart volunteer at the hospital where the bypass surgery took place. It brings me great personal pleasure to help others. I also sit on the Board of Trustees for Family Promise, a national agency that provides temporary shelter and food for homeless families. Our local Lions Club partners with Family Promise to
periodically provide meals to clients who are sheltered as part of the Interfaith Hospitality Network. During this pandemic, I have volunteered on Fridays to help serve approximately 125 people a hot meal, delivered to their doors as part of the Belvidere Community Lunch Program.
After 45 years of practicing law, as well as teaching it at the Warren Community College for ten years, I realized that helping people has been my life’s work. I had the honor of serving the residents of my hometown of Belvidere as their Mayor and Town Attorney for many years. I served as a member of the Belvidere School Board and as Chairman of the local District Committee of the Boy Scouts of America. I was on the Local Planning Board for several years in Knowlton Township where I now reside. I also served as the President of the Board of Trustees of Warren County Legal Services, Inc. for many years, as well as the President of the Board of Trustees of Warren County Family Guidance Center, Inc.
I understand the adage that “the more you give, the more you get.” Mahatma Gandhi’s quotation regarding service best personifies my commitment to service.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
