you miss a lot!
Saturday's rain couldn't spoil the
Vineland Rotary's Family BBQ!!
When it rains - we simply move indoors!
We were fortunate to be able to use the Social Hall at the Redeemer Lutheran Church and the party was a great success!
Great food and wonderful fellowship
made for a delightful day.
Thank you to Karen Bauman for
making it all happen!

Our Program:
Jessica Morrison
Jay Einstein introduced our speaker, Jessica Morrison.  Jessica is the Executive Director of the SPCA in Vineland, which is a private non-profit agency. She is passionate about animals, which led her to her current role. The SPCA has community outreach programs which are mainly funded by donors. There are many opportunities for the community to volunteer. Some of the programs include going to different neighborhoods and giving out ID tags.
Every 3rd Tuesday of the month the SPCA partners with the Oar House and hosts “Pints for Pups”. The money raised helps provide proper housing for animals.
There is also a Fostering Program which is an extension of their Volunteer Program. The SPCA also houses pigs, goats, chickens and birds along with dogs and cats.
On October 1 there will be a Fall Open House at the SPCA.
If you would like to donate food for other items through Chewy or Amazon, there is a wish list for the SPCA, and they will send it directly to them. Right now, there is a big need for cat food. They are housing over 400 cats.
Thanks to Jessica for a very informative and interesting program!
Instead of Happy $$$, we collected money for the SPCA.
As always, Rotarians were generous!
President Andy closed the meeting with the trivia question of the day:
Who was the first Latin American to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame?
Answer: Roberto Clemente July 1973.
Our Membership Committee presents "50 Things Every Rotarian Should Know About Rotary".- learn something new each week!
Fact # 8 
                                  Four Avenues of Service
The term "Four Avenues of Service" is frequently used in Rotary literature and information. The "Avenues" refer to the four elements of the Object of Rotary: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service and International Service.
Although the Avenues of Service are not found in any formal part of the constitutional documents of Rotary, the concept has been accepted as a means to describe the primary areas of Rotary activity.
"Club Service" involves all of the activities necessary for Rotarians to perform to make their club function successfully.
"Vocational Service" is a description of the opportunity each Rotarian has to represent the dignity and utility of one's vocation to the other members of the club.
"Community Service" pertains to those activities which Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. It frequently involves assistance to youth, the aged, handicapped and others who look to Rotary as a source of hope for a better life.
• The Fourth Avenue, "International Service," describes the many programs and activities which Rotarians undertake to advance international understanding, goodwill and peace. International Service projects are designed to meet humanitarian needs of people in many lands.
When a Rotarian understands and travels down the "Four Avenues of Service," the Object of Rotary takes on even greater meaning.
