Member Classification

We enjoyed hearing from Ryan Middleton who gave his classification presentation 3/21/23. Ryan, who operates Larry’s II with his brother, Bob, spoke about his background with Larry's II Restaurant.  He has lived in Vineland for most of his life and graduated Vineland High School in 1998 and University of Delaware in 2002. 
Ryan gave an overview of the history of Larry's II, which was born of the original “Jim and Larry's Restaurant” that was located on Landis Avenue. His parents, Bob and Denise Middleton originally operated the restaurant until Ryan and his brother/partner Bob took over the reins.  He spoke about the many employees who have been at the restaurant for 20+ and 30+ years and how thankful the family is for all their hard work and dedication to the business and community.
Ryan is a proud husband and father who enjoys spending time with his 14 and 16-year old children.
We all appreciate Ryan's dedication to Rotary. Not only do we hold our luncheon meetings at Larry’s II, Larry’s II has been a long-time supporter and benefactor of Rotary’s annual spaghetti dinners! Thanks Ryan and the entire Larry’s II family.
