Vineland, NJ — Three civically engaged and active professional women from Vineland were recently inducted into the Rotary Club of Vineland.
In separate luncheon ceremonies at Ramada Vineland, owner Ann Cantoni of Crust N Krumbs Bakery, retired educator and past president and key volunteer for the Vineland Historical and Sandy Hearing, and retired legal paraprofessional Eileen Duffy became the latest in the ever-growing number of men and women Rotarians joining the second largest Rotary club in its large district.
“We welcome our three new members just as we welcome all those who want to demonstrate the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self’ and contribute to the club’s significant role in our community,” said membership chair Ed Morvay.
Cantoni was sponsored by her daughter and now fellow Rotarian Tara Martinez. Membership Chair Ed Morvay sponsored Hearing and Duffy’s sponsors were Rotarians Sherry Soutiere and Ken Dondero.
Crust ‘n’ Krumbs, founded in 2008, was the 2013 Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce business of the year by the Greater Vineland Chamber of Commerce. Hearing taught for 34 years, principally in Vineland and Williamstown. Duffy’s career was managing the law practice of her late husband, Ed.
