Rotarian Ed Duffy introduced the club’s newest members at the start of the induction ceremony. They are: Branko Najdanovic, sponsored by Jay Einstein, and Caitlyn Terry, sponsored by Linda Foster.

Najdanovic is with Sir Speedy in Vineland in sales, marketing, and signage. Terry serves in remote impoverished villages worldwide to help people gain access to safe drinking water and sanitation.

The ceremony was officiated by Susanna Philippoussis, the club president, who noted that Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
