This Week's Good Stuff is Easy!

We have a lot to celebrate, which all those in attendance on Wednesday witnessed.  We officially inducted six new members (from the podium):  Adam Puff, Wayne Zschech, Kate Zschech, Allie Nagle, Jill Lawlor, and John Stefankiewicz; and welcomed Pamela Stalcup back into the fold as a continuing Rotarian.  As if that wasn’t enough, the board voted in the affirmative for two more people to bring even more energy into the Club:  Ross Brittain and Edward Naumes.  Ed is hitting the ground running by leading our Bicycle Collection effort.  How awesome is that?!  We followed the induction ceremony with the presentation of Paul Harris pins to Bob Dilks (his first), Karen Hagerman and Denise Stuart.  That’s Rotarians keeping it going!  Thanks to PH+4, Bill Bromley for doing the honors.  Closing out the festivities, Jill Lawlor shared her story and passion for giving back.  As the daughter of Dr. Sayre, she’s a legacy, who will undoubtedly be a huge asset to our club. 

Last minute Good Stuff:  Cheryl Laney reports "a wonderful day at the Flea Market thanks to many volunteers" -- Anthony Bezich, Ross Brittain, Rich Hluchan, Karen Hagerman, John Martin, Joe Murphy, Vin Parker, Marie Steeb, Denise Stuart, Neal Tully, and Wayne Zschech.  Thanks to Cheryl's leadership, and many others who donated great items to sell, our Club netted $418.  Thank you also to David Hunter who suggested we pick up unsold bikes from other vendors -- and we got 2 for free! 


Now that is a ton of Good Stuff, but I’m sure the best is yet to come.  So, what is your Good Stuff today?  Email me at this link.  Yours in Rotary,

'Magical Nonsense' at This Week's Meeting

Who doesn't love magic?  Tom Ewing is an award-winning magician, author, lecturer, columnist and National Historian for the Society of American Magicians, and he's our speaker for the September 15 meeting.  His first introduction to magic was watching the Magical Land of Alakazam in the 1960s; he sold trick decks of cards on the Ocean City boardwalk to pay for college.

In the early 1990’s he was appointed program chair and master of ceremonies for yearly conventions of The Magic Collectors’ Association, a position he held for 14 years. He holds a similar position with the New England Magic Collectors’ Association. Ewing has a master’s degree in public relations and was the global spokesman for Princeton-based Educational Testing Service. He retired from there in 2018.  He is currently co-owner of Haversat & Ewing Galleries, the world’s second-largest online magic auction company.  He lives in Yardley, PA and has been married to his wife Debbie for 48 years, has one married daughter, Amanda, a son-in-law Joe and two wonderful grandsons, Sammy age 10 and Thomas age 6.
Annual Picnic Next Week -- RSVPs required

We missed our annual picnic due to weather in 2019 and Covid in 2020, so we hope you're ready to party.  We'll be back at the Historical Society's beautiful garden on Wednesday, September 22 for dinner at 6:00pm -- no lunch meeting that week. 

And of course we need to know the guest count by Saturday so we can have enough delicious food -- remember this is free for members and guests, so please email Assad Khoury or Cheryl Laney.
Rotary Club of Haddonfield Foundation Awards Grant to Interfaith Caregivers
  
Your contributions supported a $1,000 grant to Interfaith Caregivers, a nonprofit providing services to seniors in Haddonfield, Haddon Heights and surrounding communities.  Pictured here is Interfaith's 2021 Volunteer of the Year Peter Hurd, with wife Lisa.
 
Interfaith Caregivers was started in 1990 by Dr. Joan Gault to meet the needs of isolated senior citizens. Dr. Gault elicited support from Haddonfield churches and community groups, formed a Board of Trustees, and organized the first training session for volunteers. In its first year of operation, Interfaith Caregivers served 80 clients with the help of 62 volunteers. While Interfaith Caregivers has evolved from its grassroots beginnings, the original vision of neighbors helping neighbors through simple kindnesses hasn't changed. From the beginning, Interfaith Caregivers has relied on community support and volunteers to provide basic free-of-charge services -- transportation, shopping, and companionship, enabling residents who are aging or disabled to remain independent. For more information visit their website.
