Welcome to Our Rotary Club!
The Rotary Club of Marlton, New Jersey is known throughout the district as a friendly, personal gathering of men and women, of diverse ages and ethnicities who truly enjoy one another’s company as they meet each Tuesday for interesting programs and projects that will make their community and world a better place. In short, they meet together, dine together, laugh together, and work together, using the special strengths with which each member has been blessed—for the benefit of others.
The holidays will be a bit warmer for members of the Burlington County community thanks to a joint coat drive sponsored by the eClub and Marlton club. Two car loads of warm coats were delivered to the Family Success Center in Mt. Holly on Monday, December 15th.
Thanks to all who participated!
The Marlton Rotary Club entered a tree at the Wiley Mission Festival of Trees, held on Friday, December 12th. The tree, donated by Bakanas Flowers, was decorated with banners, logos, crocuses, and other Rotary materials. Shelby and Morgan Croly of Mt. Laurel were there to help Eileen and Karen with the decorations.
The Festival was a great success with lots of activities for the whole family including horse-drawn carriage rides, Santa, music, and food -- all at no cost to attendees. Thanks also to Wiley Mission member (and fellow Rotarian), Paul Basham for recommending the event!

Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
