Risely, President, Rotary International, "We're focused more than ever on making sure that Rotary reflects the people it serves, with more women and a diverse membership.  And, we're working hard to ensure Rotary remains the world's pre-eminent volunteer service organization, by emphasizing long-term planning, sustainable service and continuity in leadership at every level."

Rotary tamed the Lions and
won the Haddy Cup!
The Rotary Club of Haddonfield and the Haddonfield Lions Club competed in the Big Haddonfield Trivia Challenge last night -- a first time ever combined meeting of the two clubs.  The evening turned out to be lively and great fun, with just a bit of trash-talking to inspire the competition.  After all -- we're all friends, and share the same goals to help our communities.  In fact, Rotary also took home $300 to support its important causes.  
Thanks to Matt Skoufalos, Editor of NJ Pen, for serving as our emcee (and creating all the questions), King Lion Bob Stokes, and Rotarian Charles Hart for making the evening such a success.  And, very special thanks to the 27 Rotarians who came out in force with their "thinking caps" on, to meet the challenge.  Great job everyone!  Way to go Rotary!

Rotary Supports Feed My Starving Children
In honor of International Week of Service, the members of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield came out in force to support the Feed My Starving Children packing event in Haddonfield last weekend.  We all donned our hairnets and gloves and packed nutritious meal formulas that will be sent all over the world to help meet the needs of people who are starving, making a real impact on their lives.  
Because no one deserves to go hungry, especially when we can do something about it.

Doing Good. 
And, Having Fun Doing It! 

Should someone ask a member of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield, “What’s Rotary, anyway?” the likely response will be short and simple: “Rotary is about doing good, and having fun doing it.” 

More formally, Rotary is about service and fellowship. In over 200 countries around the world, more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders – members of 33,000+ Rotary clubs – offer their time, talents, and treasure to help make the world a better place. They find it both very worthwhile and satisfying.
