Welcome to the Rotary Club of Vineland, NJ, USA
Click here to learn more about our exciting 100-year history and fundraising efforts that support our community projects.
We meet every week via Zoom as we can’t meet in person because of COVID 19 concerns. As many as 40 members Zoom each week! As soon as we are allowed, we will resume our weekly lunch meetings and our monthly evening meetings. Contact us for an email Zoom invitation and see Vineland Rotary at work!
Longtime club member and former President, Ken Dondero spoke at our October 20th Zoom meeting about “The Power of Babble”. Ken explained that silence instead of babble leads to much more positive sales experiences. Babble should have no place in sales. One needs to listen and learn what the client really needs. A successful sales person takes the time to be quiet and not babble on – we do not need to fill up every second of silence. Being mindful of the chaos around us takes practice. It takes practice to quiet your mind…..but in the end, when you are successful, you will enrich your life and learn to restrict the babble.
Ken laughingly added: “I never learned anything in my life while I was talking”.
A number of Vineland Rotarians participated in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, October 24th. Pictured here are (from left) Linda Foster, Gus Foster, Maureen Simmons and Donna Bennett.

What is Rotary?
As an organization of Vineland-area business and professional men and women, we stand united to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in our local community and 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, supporting the Challenger League which enables mentally and physically handicapped children to play baseball, partners with Pedals for Progress to refurbish and donate used bicycles and sewing machines to residents in developing countries, supports a number of wide-ranging hunger projects and much more!
The Rotary club of Vineland has roughly 90 members – the second-largest club in Rotary District 7505. When concerns regarding COVID 19 allow, we will resume our in person meetings on Tuesdays at 12:10 PM at the Ramada Inn, Route 55 & Landis Avenue in Vineland and our monthly dinner meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6 PM at Larry’s II Restaurant, 907 N Main Road, Vineland.
