What a Success!! This was the clubs first time hosting a Comedy Night fundraiser featuring Vince Valentine and it was hilarious. Everyone had such a great time and laugh. We can't wait until next year. We also have to thank the Runnemede VFW for catering the event and for their generous donation of the hall for that evening. 
 
 

 
The RBG Rotary Club served families at the Ronald McDonald House, as well as, has their dedication of the new living room space they had donated.
 
 

 
Our next big project will be to build a pavilion attached to the playground at Beaver Branch Park. (Green Acres) We are very excited about this project and know that it will get a lot of use. 
 
More to come!
 

 
Club Meeting- 400 Sandwiches in 40 Minutes!
 
 
 

RBG Rotary donated $11,000 to Sam Sampolski of the Runnemede VFW in support of their WWP Project for an off-road wheelchair for a wounded Veteran to be able to enjoy outdoor activities. The Runnemede VFW does a fantastic job for our Veterans and we are lucky to be able to help support them.

On 6/28/2012, The Runnemede Bellmawr Glendora Rotary Club assembled 400 ham and cheese sandwiches for the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden. Founded in 1976, the Cathedral Kitchen has been in existence for 36 years, and in 2011, the Cathedral Kitchen provided over 235,000 meals. RBG club member Denise Penswater works closely with the Cathedral Kitchen and was aware of the need for meals/food towards the end of the month, so the RBG Rotary Club has voted to commit the last meeting of every month to making sandwiches and/or donating food. The RBG Rotary also visits the Cathedral Kitchen periodically to help serve meals to those in need.ImageImage
 

 
 

On June 4, 2012, The Bellmawr School District Family Liaison Center along with the support of the Runnemede Bellmawr Glendora Rotary Club held a Water and Bike Safety evening at the local elementary school, where children were able to learn about water safety with the help of Josh the Otter himself. The children were given the Josh the Otter books and participated in activities around water safety and there was musical portion of the program where children were able to sing the Josh the Otter water safety song and make the official pledge to be safe around water. Children were also encouraged to bring out their bikes and helmets and a representative from The Peddler’s Shop from Deptford did bike inspections while a representative from Safe Kids performed helmets inspections. 50 lucky children even went home with brand new bike helmets. This event was a huge success for Bellmawr and it’s residents!Image

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
