AMP Rotary seeking new members

Residents can visit with the Rotary on Nov. 21 at 5:45 p.m.

If you’ve been following the community events in Moorestown this fall, you may have a reoccurring question, who is a Rotarian? From the adoption of the dog park to the recent Comedy Night and Pancake Breakfast, Rotarians are busy in the community this fall. But who is a Rotarian and what inspires them?

Rotarians are men and women of all ages, races and religions. They own and operate businesses, work in industry, government, health, human services, education, retail businesses and many professions in and around Moorestown. Some are retired or work exclusively caring for children, aging relatives or other loved ones.

Moorestown supports three rotary groups. The Breakfast Club of Moorestown meets Wednesdays at 7:15 a.m at the Moorestown Community House. The Rotary Club of Moorestown meets Thursdays at 12:15 also at the Moorestown Community House. The newest Rotary branch is the AMP Rotary Club of Moorestown which meets the first and third Tuesday of the month at 5:45 p.m., usually at Harvest Restaurant in the Moorestown Mall.

Moorestown Rotarians practice the organization’s motto, “Service Above Self.” Take the new AMP Rotary Club, for instance. The Rotary Club of Moorestown recognized that many existing and prospective members did not feel they had the time to attend lunch time meetings but still wanted to contribute to the community. AMP meets only twice a month instead of weekly and holds its meeting in the evening and after business hours in order to make it easier for members to attend.

The AMP Rotary, although it has only been in existence for less than a year, already has 10 members whose ages range from 20-somethings to 60 and beyond. Different races, different political parties, different genders all come together twice a month to share their commitment to not only serve the community but also the world. AMP Rotary has already adopted the
Moorestown Dog Park and will oversee yearly maintenance at the park in cooperation with Moorestown Department of Public Works. AMP Rotarians have joined the Lunch Club in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, Rise Against Hunger and will be volunteering at Cathedral Kitchen and donating dinners for families staying at Ronald McDonald House.

“We are actively looking for local residents to join this option for ‘giving back,’” said AMP Evening Group’s Membership Chair Claire McHugh.

Residents can come for a visit at Harvest on Nov. 21 at 5:45 p.m.
