Rotarians Help Bring Baby Elephant Sculpture -
Arriving Thursday Morning in Haddonfield 

More good stuff by our Rotarians:  a 450-pound bronze baby elephant – modeled after a real-life orphaned baby elephant found in Kenya in 2014 – will move into the Haddonfield NJ Children’s Sculpture Zoo on Thursday, August 5 – the real-life elephant’s 7th birthday.  Brought to you by the Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust, whose Founder and Chair is Rotarian Stuart Harting (that's his grandaughter Liliana above).  Several Trustees are also Rotarians -- Joe Murphy, Susan Baltake and Thom Wagner

Found wandering Kenya’s remote Ndoto hills at just 48 hours old, confused, alone and scared in a herd of sheep and goats, the real-life elephant was rescued by local tribesmen, rehabilitated at the world-renowned Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and named Baby Ndotto – “our little dream.” His dramatic story inspired a 2020 exhibit of 21 life-size bronze elephants that became the hit of London, raising funds and awareness for these endangered animals.  There will be only 3 life-size versions of Ndotto in the world -- in Haddonfield, New York and London. 

Join the party at 10:30am on Thursday when Ndotto is escorted from just west of the Haddonfield PATCO station on Kings Highway, past the “Haddy” dinosaur sculpture to the Zoo at 309 Kings Highway East on the corner of Evergreen Lane.  Toys and treats for all.  

That's Good Stuff from the Sculpture Trust.  What's your Good Stuff today?  
August 4 Speaker:  Jim Clancy  

Our speaker on Wednesday, August 4 at Tavistock will be James Clancy, Executive Director at United Methodist Communities at Collingswood for the past five years. Jim is a member of our Rotary Club and has also been a member and Past President of the Pitman Rotary Club (2009-2010, 2010-2011, and 2015-2016) as well as an Assistant District Governor.

He has been a Nursing Home Administrator for nearly 30 years; prior to his role in Collingswood he was Executive Director at United Methodist Communities at Pitman for 13 years.  He has a bachelor's degree from LaSalle University and a Nursing Home Administrator’s license (L.N.H.A.) from New Jersey.  Given the past COVID year, this should be an interesting conversation.

Thank You to Eric Zino
