Welcome President Pamela!
 
This week the members of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield joined over 1.2 million Rotarians around the world in celebrating the work done by Club leaders, and "passing the gavel" to incoming officers.  At its June 16th dinner, the Members of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield said thank you and farewell to Club President Charles Hart for outstanding service over the last year.  Pamela Mary Fisk was then installed as President of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield for Rotary Year 2019-20.  Congratulations, Pamela!  We were pleased to have new District Governor for Rotary District 7505, Joanne Ventura -- pictured above left with Pamela -- at the dinner to conduct the installation ceremony.  Thank you, Joanne. 
 
Pictured above, Immediate Past President (for all of 10 minutes) Charles Hart passed the Club Charter to new President Pamela Fisk at the installation dinner, as prior year Past President Skip Bean, at left, looks on.  We also appointed the following Officers and Directors to their new or continuing roles:
  • Denise Stuart, Vice-President
  • Deborah Garwood, Secretary
  • Gerry Nanos, Treasurer
  • George Cox, Sergeant-at-Arms
  • Charles Hart, Immediate Past President
  • Cheryl Laney, Club Service Director
  • Denise Stuart and George Cox, Meetings Directors
  • Bill Wallner, Membership DIrector
  • Bill Lane, Rotary Foundation Liaison
  • Assad Khoury, Fundraising Director
  • Mary Ann Bigelow, Local Service Director
  • Scott Tourtellotte, Regional Service Director
  • Jack Lane, International Service Director
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Karen Hagerman for her many years of dedicated service to the RCHF as Chair, as she comes to the end of her term.  She deserves a great deal of credit for her many accomplishments on behalf of the Club's Foundation and its many beneficiaries.  Thank you, Karen!  The RCHF Board announced recently the appointment of Mary Ann Bigelow to the position of Chair.    We are grateful to Mary Ann for expanding her role to lead the RCHF.   
 
Thank you all for your participation and commitment to the Club and to Rotary. 
Yo Ho Ho...A Pirate's Life for Me!
 
We had such a great time on the Delaware River last week as we sailed along on the AJ Meerwald! 
 
Such a beautiful evening...lots of great friends, food and drink as we watched for pirates on the open sea (aka river). We were happy to see a Bald Eagle watching us from afar, but no pirates...fortunately! 
Rotary Circle takes Center Stage!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is "Rotary in Action" and community efforts at their finest!  Rotarian Susan Baltake describes it best:  "Neither cold weather, traffic or construction problems could stop "Ballerina" from standing tall today!"  See the town's newest sculpture gracing "Rotary Circle" the next time you are in Haddonfield (near Acme at Haddon and Ellis Streets).  Excellent work by the Haddonfield Outdoor Sculpture Trust and Stuart Harding, who is pictured above (center) with Barry Woods Johnston (right), the sculptor.  
Rotary Supports Respond, Inc. Graduates   
Helping people help themselves is Respond's mission in Camden, and the Rotary Club of Haddonfield Foundation is pleased to support this important mission routinely.  Special thanks to Nick Nicolay who represented our members at Respond's recent graduation event for the students in their Culinary Arts program.  The Club gave each of the 12 proud graduates a culinary arts book to continue their learning.  
Rotarians meet Dalai Lama in Dharamshala
 
 
Thanks so much to member, Rich Hluchan, who shared this amazing photograph from the trip to India for Rotary National Immunization Day, with Tom Veevers.  The group had an audience with the Dalai Lama!   We can't help but wonder...what did they talk about? 
 
Pictured above are Past District Governor Tom Veevers with Haddonfield Rotarians Kathy and Jim Tassini, Dennis Kelleher, Lorrie Hart (Charles's wife), Kurt Brearey (Cheryl Laney), Debbie and Rich Hluchan. 
 
Sure hope Rich and the others will share more  about this special meeting when they return.  By all reports...the trip was WONDERFUL!  
 
 
 
Doing Good. 
And, Having Fun Doing It! 

Should someone ask a member of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield, “What’s Rotary, anyway?” the likely response will be short and simple: “Rotary is about doing good, and having fun doing it.” 

More formally, Rotary is about service and fellowship. In over 200 countries around the world, more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders – members of 33,000+ Rotary clubs – offer their time, talents, and treasure to help make the world a better place. They find it both very worthwhile and satisfying.
