Woodbury Breakfast Rotary Club History

 

The concept of a Rotary Breakfast Club in Woodbury was developed in 1990 as an alternative to the traditional luncheon meeting of the original Woodbury Rotary Club (chartered in 1922) as a means to expand Rotary membership. The 1987 United States Supreme Court ruling against an all-male organization sparked the idea of welcoming women into this new club. It was District Governor Herb A. Budd, Jr.'s dream to see the addition of a 65th club in his district during his year in office.  As a result, Herb supported the formation of the club by assigning Sal Bellia as a special representative in the formation of the club.

 

Our Rotary Charter was presented on June 12, 1990 at The Venice Plaza in Berlin, N.J. With Gary Reddig as the first club President. There were 25 Charter Members and six of the original Charter Members are still active members.

 

Today, our club stands strong and solvent with 24 active members. Our contributions to our community are innumerable and we are ever mindful of our responsibility to the less fortunate in the world around us.

 

The Woodbury Breakfast Rotary Club is truly a unique group that always strives to give “Service Above Self”. Our 2013-2014 President is Dottie McQuade.
