Vineland, NJ – The Rotary Club of Vineland continues to add active and civically engaged members to its rolls. At a recent membership luncheon, held at the Ramada of Vineland, new member Stan Orzechowski was installed. With more than 80 members, the Vineland Club is the second largest in Rotary District 7640, which encompasses southern New Jersey.

Orzechowski was sponsored by Rotarian Gus Foster.

The ceremony was officiated by Vineland Rotary Past President Ed Duffy, who noted that Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. As signified by the motto “Service Above Self,” Rotary’s main objective is service in both the workplace and the community.

“Stan Orzechowski is a great addition to the Rotary Club of Vineland,” said Susanna Philippoussis, the club president. “He’s been involved in making the community a better place since college, participating in baseball fundraisers and camps. We look forward to working with Stan on new service projects for Vineland.”

Orzechowski is vice president of Ben’s ProServ in Vineland. He referred to a saying he learned in his youth and quoted it in relation to joining Rotary.

“We are just ordinary people doing extraordinary things,” he said.
