Welcome to the Rotary Club of Vineland New Jersey USA
As an organization of Vineland and area business and professional men and women, we stand united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
Our worldwide motto is: SERVICE ABOVE SELF.
We are a local chapter of Rotary International, which has determined that its primary focus is the eradication of polio worldwide. The virus of this crippling disease has been eliminated from almost every corner of the world, save for a few remote areas in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria.
In addition, our club has been involved with raising money to provide fresh water wells for thousands of residents in Nigeria.
In our communities, the Vineland Rotary Club supports charitable activities, such as an annual Christmas party for special needs students in Vineland, the distribution of free dictionaries to 3rd grade students, awarding scholarships to high school students to help offset college costs, organizing the Challenger League which enables mentally and physically handicapped children to play baseball, partnership with Pedals for Progress to refurbish and donate used bicycles and sewing machines to residents in developing countries, and much more.
The Rotary club of Vineland currently has 91 members - the second largest club in Rotary District 7640. Our meetings take place every Tuesday at 12:10 PM at the Ramada Inn, Route 55 & Landis Avenue in Vineland. Occasionally we go off site for special occasions. Please review our events calendar for current information.
