Another Week of Good Stuff by Our Members

Our Club had another week full of Good Stuff and you can view photos on our website. At last week's meeting, Bill Lane provided an update on Rotary's success in efforts to eradicate polio around the world (just 2 countries to go and the world will be polio-free) and highlight World Polio Day on October 24. 

We also inducted more energy and ideas into our Club in the form of two new members, Ross Brittain and Edward Naumes.  Both are hitting the ground running, which we love to see.  We were also treated to a spousal tag-team by Kate and Wayne Zschech who spoke about their experiences together, Rotary involvement and how they’d like to contribute going forward.  Great stuff! 

We closed out the week helping others, as Rotarians always do, by taking part in a clean-up of a neighboring cemetery, Mt. Peace in Lawnside, which has meaningful historical significance. This awesome effort was highlighted and spearheaded by Cheryl Laney.  Thank you Cheryl! The event was a multi-generational endeavor as well, which is great to see.  Thank you for all you do as Rotary Club of Haddonfield members.  So, what is your Good Stuff today?


President Scott
This Week's Meeting:  Learn What's New at the Camden Community Partnership

In addition to the camaraderie we enjoy, our guest speaker on October 20 will be Kris Kolluri, President and CEO of the Camden Community Partnnership, formerly known as Cooper's Ferry Partnership.  The Partnership is a private nonprofit corporation that brings together stakeholders who work collectively to revitalize Camden's infrastructure, neighborhoods, parks and education.

Kolluri is a graduate of Rutgers School of Business-Camden and earned an MS in international business and a law degree while working in Washington, D.C. He returned to NJ and launched a distinguished career in transportation, education, and economic development, serving as commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Transportation and CEO of the NJ Schools Development Authority.  At the Partnership he has spearheaded the development and oversight of Camden Works, an employment training and placement program, which also includes wrap-around social services. Focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion, the program launched in late 2019 and has already placed hundreds of residents in meaningful jobs—no small task in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Calling All Artists, Crafters and Creative Folks

With the TopGolf fundraiser well underway in planning, the fundraising team has launched a new project -- a Holiday Tree exhibit and auction, in conjunction with the Haddonfield Library.  Local businesses, individuals and organizations can design and exhibit a themed tree that will be displayed from November 27-December 12, with all trees up for auction.  Several "tree spots" have already been reserved and there is a maximum capacity of 18, both full-size and table-top.  Want to help or want more information?  Email Allison.
