Welcome to Marlton Rotary!

 

The Rotary Club of Marlton, New Jersey is known throughout the district as a friendly, personal gathering of men and women, of diverse ages and ethnicities who truly enjoy one another’s company as they meet each Tuesday for interesting programs and projects that will make their community and world a better place. In short, they meet together, dine together, laugh together, and work together, using the special strengths with which each member has been blessed—for the benefit of others.

 
What's New
 
Marlton Rotary had the pleasure of hosting District 7505 Governor Bill Donnelly and his lovely wife Sue at our meeting Tuesday night. Thank you Bill for your words of inspiration for the upcoming year.
Congratulations to this year's winners of the Rotary Club of Marlton Scholarships:
 
Diana Wood, Matt Riggs, Andre Flamini and Joseph Mikusa.
 
These students are shining examples of "Service Above Self" and we wish them, and all of the graduating class of 2018, much success in their future endeavors!
 
Club members took time to connect with others in the local business community, thanks to Club Secretary and TD Branch Manager, Fiona Malloy (top center).   Rotary actually began as a group of Chicago professionals with diverse backgrounds, meeting for lunch so that they could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities. Rotary's name came from the group's early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members.  Since 1905, Rotary has grown into the largest networking organization in the world, with 1.2 million members.
This morning, Marlton Rotarians woke up early to host a "Thank You" breakfast for our local sanitation workers.  Employees were treated to a buffet featuring an assortment of fresh bagels donated by our friends at Moore Bagels.
 When the Township called, Marlton Rotary answered supplying volunteers to help staff Evesham Township's annual event.  Pictured are President Elect, Joan Kerrigan, and club Foundation Chair, Evans Kerrigan. 
In celebration of Earth Day, approximately 100 runners raced through the trails of the Black Run Preserve, all to benefit the Friends of thee Black Run Preserve and the Evesham PD Police Unity Tour.  The winner of this year's Marlton Rotary-Evesham Police Unity Tour-Black Run Preserve 5K was Officer Mike Hatler of EPD.  
 
Members of Marlton Rotary joined our neighbors in Mt. Laurel in honoring Rotarian Jarry Jones for his 40 years of Service Above Self. 
Jarry is a six-time Paul Harris Fellow, winner of both the Mike Kitdis Award for Environmental Work and the Archie Award for Community Service, and has served as club president twice as well as serving as Assistant Governor under six different District Governors.
 
Jarry says his "Secret to success is join early, don't quit and don't move" and he has truly lived this motto.  He began his career in service to community 70 years ago at age 16, when he joined the Fellowship Fire Department and moved through the ranks of what is now the Mt. Laurel Fire District.  At the same time, he joined the Grange, an organization of farmers started after the Civil War at the request of President Lincoln.  Having held offices on the local, county, state and national Grange levels, he currently holds the office of Master (President) of Moorestown Grange #8.
 
As a member of the County Green Acres and Mt. Laurel Green Acres boards, he was involved in the design and construction of the Laurel Acres Park where he mowed the first soccer fields and coached Greentree Soccer for 13 years.  In 2004, Jarry took on the project of renovating the historic Alice Paul House, organizing Boy Scout Troop 76 to tackle the landscape clean up.  There doesn't seem to be an aspect of life in Mount Laurel that Jarry hasn't touched!
 
A lifetime member of Moorestown and Mt. Laurel Quaker Meeting houses, Jarry has taught Sunday school, led the Teenage Youth Group, and served on many committees including the property committee which was involved with the renovation of the historic Mt. Laurel Meeting House (built in 1760). 
 
A local historian, Jarry is a great resource, a good friend and a fantastic Rotarian.  We congratulate him on this well deserved recognition!
We all know first responders live high stress lives.  What happens when the stress gets to be too much? Last night's speaker, Stephen Kavalkovich, told us his first hand experiences and how he came to found "Rescue the Rescuer".  To learn more about Stephen and his program, check out his podcast:   http://www.blogtalkradio.com/rescuetherescuer
 
Dwayne Hillis and Torez Jones of the Champion Philadelphia Soul were treated to dinner and SuperBowl sports talk tonight.  Adding to the fun was our guest, Mike Deehr (photo center), Steelers fan and husband of Rotarian Cynthia Deehr.  
Marlton Rotary is glad to welcome our speakers Rand and Kim Robbins supporting Toys for Tots in Memory of their son Mark. Please help support this great cause by attending their Bowling Event on November 25, 2017 at Laurel Lanes in Maple Shade. Also, be on the lookout for their Toys for Tots donation boxes at local businesses! 
7The Rotary Club of Marlton proudly sponsored the Medford VFW Post 7677 Annual Golf Tournament on October 9 2017. Golfers waited out the rainy weather and enjoyed great fellowship and dinner afterwards! Glad to support our Veterans!
On Saturday September 23, Marlton Rotary welcomed area military active duty personnel, veterans, and their families to Indian Acres Tree Farm to enjoy a fun day of free food, games, and pumpkins. We all had a great time and offer our sincere thanks for their service.
 
Marlton Rotary Club is holding the 7th annual Military Appreciation Day on September 23, 2017 from 10:00 to 4:00 pm.  The event is open to the public and free to all military and their families (with Military ID).  To honor all armed forces, active, retired and veterans, please come and enjoy an event filled day with free activities, and free lunch.
