Celebrate Independence in Haddonfield on July 3 & 4
No Lunch Meetings June 29 or July 6

As we kick off our 2022-2023 Rotary year, our club is proud to financially support and participate in the Haddonfield Celebrations Association's annual festivities commemorating Independence Day.

First up -- on Sunday July 3, at 5pm, Kings Highway will be closed from Haddon Avenue to PATCO for the family-friendly Yankee Doodle Do, a street fair with music, food trucks and bounce houses.  The evening ends at 9pm with the always spectacular fireworks show.

Then all Rotarians are urged to wear tan or white pants/skirts/shorts with their Rotary polo shirt (or any blue collared shirt) for the Fourth of July Parade.  Invite relatives and neighbors to march with you.  We will meet up at 9:15am on the Chestnut Street side of Saxbys and once again select flags from the many nations of Rotary (like Assad Khoury, John Martin and Gerry Nanos, below).  The parade will have string bands and other bands, our local commissioners,  Citizen of the Year, civic and neighborhood groups, kids on bikes and vintage cars.  I look forward to marching with you!

June 29-30 RYLA session at Stockton

Interested Rotarians are invited to attend a dynamic and compelling session at this year's RYLA program, with more than 100 students participating in-person after the COVID-challenged years.  The District has secured Retired NJSP Major John Hunt to provide his presentation, "Active Shooter:  Managing the Radius of Risk." 

Major Hunt provided this presentation to our Club in early 2019 and just returned from Uvalde, Texas where he interacted with children and others who were directly involved with that horrific event.  The session starts at 9:00am in the Campus Center Theater at Stockton University.  No RSVP is required.
Veterans Scholarship for Study Abroad Winner

As we continue with our series focusing on our Club's scholarship winners, meet Timothy Schafle, who received our Club's $2,000 Veterans Scholarship for Study Abroad.  Timothy served four years with the US Marine Corps (2015 - 2019). He was stationed in Iwakuni, Japan and his M.O.S. was 6541 - Aviation Ordnance. Timothy is currently a Junior at Rutgers University majoring in Business Administration. He recently completed a four-month internship doing clerical work at Mount Holly Police Department and has set his sights on pursing a Master’s degree in the future.  Timothy chose to attend the Rutgers Study Abroad Business Trip to South Africa in Spring 2022. Through his military career  he has had the opportunity to travel to more than 20 countries across Southeast Asia and truly appreciates the personal and professional growth that results from traveling.

Our scholarships are made possible only through the generosity of members who contribute to our club's Foundation -- so thank you!

Bring Snack Packages in July for Cathedral Kitchen

Cathedral Kitchen is experiencing a significant uptick in guests since food prices have increased.  They are in great need of small packages of granola bars, pretzels, fruit snacks and other portable items that can supplement the food they provide.  Our club will be collecting these during the month of July, so please bring packages of snacks to meetings.

There are no luncheon meetings on June 29 or July 6, and no Observer next week.  We'll be back with a full schedule and a Club Forum on July 13, and don't forget about the return of the Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Arts Festival, July 9-10 on Kings Highway.
