Breakfast Rotary Club

Since 2002, the Voorhees Breakfast Rotary Club has been committed to serving our town, the South Jersey region and the world. Its members meet weekly on Thursday mornings to plan projects and activities which help meet community needs and solve problems.

Rotary International is the oldest charitable service organization in the world and addresses such issues as hunger, ignorance and child mortality. There are more than 1.2 million Rotarians all over the world in more than 35,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries.  The Rotary Foundation is one of the world’s largest and has consistently had one of the highest ratings in Charity Navigator. Since the 1980’s, the Foundation and volunteers worldwide have spearheaded the effort to eradicate polio.

In partnership with Hope Church and the Cathedral Kitchen, Voorhees Rotarians are helping meet the needs of those in need of food. Members regularly prepare meals for hospitalized children and their families at the Ronald McDonald House in Camden. In our grade schools, they purchase and organize delivery of healthy snacks so our children’s learning is not impaired. They support the efforts of the “Josh the Otter Water Safety Project” to help prevent child drowning, one of the leading causes of death of youngsters.

The Club is hosting a Voorhees Community Yard Sale on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10am to 2pm in the Voorhees Town Center parking lot.  All residents are welcome to participate. Cost is $25 for two parking spaces. To sign up and for more information, contact Bob Scapicchio at or Susan Bromley at

The Club’s members come from all walks of life and range in age from 39 to 93. They are a diverse, energetic and fun group. The members include two past Rotary District Governors and two current Assistant Governors, helping lead the Rotary District (7505) which covers southern and most of central New Jersey. The club meets every Thursday at 7:30am, alternating between on-line zoom meetings and in person meetings at the Palace Diner & Tapped Bar in Berlin.

The Club hosts interesting speakers and programs. If interested, call Roger Leonard at (856) 627-2600 x427 or visit the website at
