Rotary Circle takes Center Stage!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is "Rotary in Action" and community efforts at their finest!  Rotarian Susan Baltake describes it best:  "Neither cold weather, traffic or construction problems could stop "Ballerina" from standing tall today!"  See the town's newest sculpture gracing "Rotary Circle" the next time you are in Haddonfield (near Acme at Haddon and Ellis Streets).  Excellent work by the Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust and Stuart Harding, who is pictured above (center) with Barry Woods Johnston (right), the sculptor.  
Rotary Supports Job Training Program
Rotary Club of Haddonfield President Charles Hart, Vice President Pamela Fisk, and Rotary Club of Haddonfield Foundation Chair Karen Hagerman attended the Respond Automotive Technology Program graduation this week.  Pictured above with Camden Councilman Angel Fuentes (second from left), our Club officers demonstrated their support for such important vocational training programs in the City of Camden.  Congratulations and Best Wishes to the Class of 2018!  
Rotary Supports Respond, Inc. Graduates   
Helping people help themselves is Respond's mission in Camden, and the Rotary Club of Haddonfield Foundation is pleased to support this important mission routinely.  Special thanks to Nick Nicolay who represented our members at Respond's recent graduation event for the students in their Culinary Arts program.  The Club gave each of the 12 proud graduates a culinary arts book to continue their learning.

Scholarships Presented to
Area High School Students
 
The Rotary Club of Haddonfield hosted its annual Scholarship Dinner on Wednesday, May 23rd at the Tavistock Country Club.  Six students from area high schools received scholarships to continue their education.  After learning more about each of these students and their hopes and dreams, we all agree -- the future is bright indeed!  
 
Trees Beautiful Trees!
The Rotary Club of Haddonfield received a grant from Rotary District 7640 this year to plant 12-14 trees throughout our community, just in time for Earth Day (April 22nd) and Arbor Day (April 27th).   As Robin Potter of the Haddonfield Shade Tree Commission reported to the Club at this week's meeting, it is important to maintain the beautiful, but diminishing tree canopy in town for many reasons.  This is also our Club and District's response to Rotary International President Ian Riseley's challenge to plant 1.2 million trees around the world this year.  After all Rotary's founder, Paul Harris, had a "deep love of nature, and his habit of planting friendship trees seeded a strong tradition within Rotary."  Check out this month's Rotarian Magazine to learn more about Rotary's commitment to Preserving Planet Earth.  Let's all go out and plant a tree!
Rotarians meet Dalai Lama in Dharamshala
 
 
Thanks so much to member, Rich Hluchan, who shared this amazing photograph from the trip to India for Rotary National Immunization Day, with Tom Veevers.  The group had an audience with the Dalai Lama!   We can't help but wonder...what did they talk about? 
 
Pictured above are Past District Governor Tom Veevers with Haddonfield Rotarians Kathy and Jim Tassini, Dennis Kelleher, Lorrie Hart (Charles's wife), Kurt Brearey (Cheryl Laney), Debbie and Rich Hluchan. 
 
Sure hope Rich and the others will share more  about this special meeting when they return.  By all reports...the trip was WONDERFUL!  
 
Our Club Supports Respond Culinary Program Graduates!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Haddonfield was pleased to participate in the Commencement Exercise for the Respond Camden Culinary Arts Program on January 25, 2018.  The Club was well represented by Nick Nicolay, Charles Hart, Jim Tassini and Assad Khoury, who were all there to congratulate the ten Culinary Arts Program graduates, and present each one with a Rotary International Cooking Arts Book. 
 
Congratulations to the Chefs!

On November 7th, three Rotary Club of Haddonfield female members were honored by Rotary Districts 7450 and 7640 at an event celebrating the 30 Year Anniversary of Women in Rotary at the Springfield Country Club in Springfield, PA.  Our Club has many members worthy of nomination for this award, but was especially proud to have three of our own members selected to receive three of the five awards that were given out by our District.  The Club came out in force to support this event, which helped us all realize just how far we've come in the last 30 years.  Congratulations to everyone involved!

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.
