After 49 years of serving the community, the Rotary Club of Mid Jersey Cape  held its final meeting , its members made the hard decision to disband the club due to declining membership.

Founded in 1968, the Mid Jersey Rotary Club is part of the larger international service organization Rotary International. The local club has struggled with recruitment for several years, and members decided at a meeting held in March that the club would disband.

I often wonder what other people think about when they hear the word “Rotarian.”

Since I was about 10 years old, I attended many service events with my dad (a member and past president of the Central Ocean Rotary Club in Toms River, New Jersey). The members welcomed me with open arms, laughs, and, of course, a ton of work to be done.

I learned about camaraderie and good work ethic at a young age. I also learned not every family was like my own. Not everyone has my abilities, my health, or my amazing parents. Not everyone has food at their table, a steady job, or a home. But together, the Rotarians work hard to extend a helping hand to anyone struggling to lift them up.

Student of Month June 2016

Hi, my name is Emily Kelley and I am a sophomore at Middle Township High School.  I am a resident of Cape May Court House and have attended Middle Township Public Schools since Pre-Kindergarten.  Currently at MTHS I am a part of an extensive amount of sports and clubs.  I play field hockey in the fall and lacrosse in the spring.  During the winter season I participate in the school Musical.  Over the course of the entire year, I play the flute in the band, am a member of Student Council and Key Club.  I am also very involved in all activities regarding the Class of 2018 as I was the Secretary of my class this past school year and will be president of my class for the 2016-2017 school year.  Regarding community service, in fifth grade I began helping out at my church’s food pantry and a few years later, I became a helper at Vacation Bible School.   I also volunteer at the theater camp “Shore Productions” .  In high school, I have volunteered for numerous events such as Toys for Tots, Caring for Kids and many others.  On top of the work I do outside of the regular school day, I am also taking four honors classes and currently hold a 4.57 grade point average ranking me sixth in my class.  Balancing all of these activities is not easy, but I believe that if you have a positive attitude and are passionate about something, anything can be done, no matter what the task.  Throughout my years at Middle Township Pubic Schools, I have been introduced to so many extraordinary opportunities.  Two years ago I was recognized for my hard work as “Eighth Grader of the year” of the Middle Township Middle School for the 2013-2014 school year and now being honored as the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary Club Student of the Month for June 2016 is a huge accomplishment in itself.  In March of 2016 I was able to take part in MTHS’s annual Red Cross Club Blood Drive and donated blood to the Red Cross Organization.  I was also given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to France and Spain during Spring Break of 2016. In late June I will be traveling to Boston to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders where attendees will have an in-depth experience of what it is like to become/be a physician.  I could not be more thankful for being honored as the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary Club Student of the Month and am very appreciative of the teachers who nominated me for this award.

Student of Month May 2016

Hello, my name is Rob Giulian, and I am currently a sophomore at Middle Township High School. I am sixteen years old and reside in Stone Harbor. I am very honored to be the Mid-Jersey Cape Rotary’s May “Student of the Month”.  I believe that hard work and a positive attitude will get you anywhere in life.  Being selected for this award is a highlight of my work ethic.  I am a three sport athlete running cross-country in the fall, playing basketball in the winter and playing tennis in the spring.  On top of playing sports I am very involved in school as well as in my community. I am a proud member of Red Cross Club, Italian-American Club and Interact Club which the Rotary Club sponsors.  At Middle Township High School, I serve in several leadership roles such as being the Class of 2018’s Vice President and a Student Council Elected Officer.  In addition to playing sports and being involved in clubs, I work hard keep high grades. I currently hold a 4.3 GPA and am ranked 17th in the class.  In June, I will travel to Monmouth University to attend a leadership conference as I was selected by the high school officials.  In the community, I am heavily active in my church and town.  At Our Savior Lutheran Church in Stone Harbor, I am a lector and a teacher at Summer Vacation Bible School.  I am also very active in Stone Harbor as I always help with the Stone Harbor Fire Department’s Christmas, Easter and summer events.  I am willing to dedicate my time, effort and energy to help others.  I am always willing to give back to the community, and I especially try to be a role model for younger people. With determination, work ethic and the drive to help people, I believe that I can achieve anything in life.  I am confident that I can overcome any challenges and achieve greatness.  Thank you again for this great honor.

Student of Month April 2016

Hi I’m Maggie Fossett!

I am a sophomore at Middle Twp High school and am involved in numerous clubs and sports. I play field hockey and golf, and am a member of the Red Cross Club, Chess Club, and Key Club. This year was also my first year being involved with the school musical, as I was the Personal Assistant to our director. Budgeting my time with these activities and honors classes is not an easy feat. However with a positive attitude, I try my best to excel in everything I participate in without stressing myself out. For community service, I find ways I can donate my time and talents. I am an artist, and for this year's Spirit week I hand drew eight life sized astronauts for my classes’ hallway as well as drawing the characters for our Christmas door decorating contest. And fortunate enough, both contests were won. For future community service, I am prepared to contribute any time and effort I can. There is an upcoming art show coming up that is raising money for victims of drug abuse that I already have a painting made for and maybe another coming soon. I love art and being creative, helping others and being apart of the community in a positive way is just the motivation I need to keep doing what I’m doing. I am very thankful and appreciative for being honored for my hard work and my incredible teachers that recommended me for this.

Dear Rotary Club of Mid Jersey Cape Members:
I am truly honored to be selected as the Service Above Self/Student of the Month.  My name is Rob Church and I am a senior honors student at Middle Township High School.  After high school, I plan on obtaining a degree in Civil Engineering so that I can work in a profession that benefits society and mankind.
Throughout my high school career, I have always made academics a priority while at the same time remaining involved in school and community activities.  I am a varsity tennis player and last year was recognized as First Team CAL as well as All South Jersey for first doubles.  I have also tried to do all I can to be involved in the school community where I have been a member of the Bible Club, Student Council, Math League and Future Business Leaders of America.  As a member of National Honor Society, I have completed a number of community service activities such as tending a wildlife habitat garden for special needs students in the Cape May County Special Services School District, as well as designing and building an outdoor tic-tac-toe board for the garden to help these students develop their leisure time skills.  In addition, I have spent time working in the historical herb garden at Gandy’s Farm, which helps the Historical Preservation Society of Upper Township educate the public about how herbs have been grown and used throughout our history.
I am also involved in my church, the First Baptist Church of Cape May Court House, where I am an usher and a planning committee member of a men’s outreach group.  I have volunteered for numerous church improvement projects, worked with the technology team and I am also currently involved in a mentoring program for at-risk youth.
In my spare time I enjoy researching South Jersey history, especially the Delaware Bayshore and area railroads.  I also enjoy collecting books and old postcards documenting the rich history of our region.
Again, I sincerely thank you for honoring me with this nomination!
Very truly yours,
Rob Church

  KHYBER AGENCY - Gunmen shot dead a health worker administering polio drops and other vaccines to children in Ghundi area of tehsil Jamrud on Saturday, officials said.

Sources said the man, Ghailaf, was performing his official duty during the expanded polio immunization (EPI) campaign at a center in Ghundi when unidentified militants broke into his office and opened indiscriminate fire, killing him on the spot. The killers successfully managed to escape from the scene after committing the crime.

Soon after the incident, Khasadar force reached the spot and shifted the body to Jamrud Hospital for medico-legal formalities. They also collected evidence from the site to start investigation in the matter, sources said. The deceased was a permanent employ of EPI program and a resident of Bara. It merits mentioning here that on 13th of the recent month, a polio worker was shot dead on his doorstep in Jamrud.
So far 19 polio positive cases have been detected in Khyber agency in 2013.

Agencies add: Officials said the assailants were two in number.  The murder took place at a government-run dispensary in Jamrud town in the Khyber tribal district. The gunmen ordered women and children to leave before shooting dead the vaccinator, doctor Sameen Jan, the top health official in Khyber told a foreign news agency.

Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the killing, but Taliban militants have been targeting health workers and security personnel during vaccination campaigns. A local administration official confirmed the incident and said that the assailants left a note on the body warning of dire consequences for anyone continuing to vaccinate children in Khyber.

The attacks come despite a recent fatwa by a prominent religious scholar, known as the ‘Father of the Taliban’, who urged parents to immunise their children against polio and other life-threatening diseases and said vaccinations were compliant with Sharia.

Last year the Pakistani Taliban banned polio vaccinations in the tribal region of Waziristan, alleging the campaign was a cover for espionage. Eradication efforts have also suffered due to long-standing rumours that the vaccine was part of a Western plot to sterlise Muslims.

Ansarul Mujahideen, a little-known militant group linked to the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, the umbrella Taliban faction in Pakistan, has threatened opposition leader and former cricket hero Imran Khan for criticising attacks on polio vaccination teams. Khan on Wednesday declared polio workers as soldiers of Islam and said those attacking them were not doing any justice to humanity, Islam or Pakistanis.

Pakistan is one of three countries in the world where polio remains endemic and efforts to stamp it out have been badly affected by attacks on health workers inoculating children. Polio is also endemic in Afghanistan and Nigeria. According to the World Health Organization, Pakistan recorded 72 cases of polio this year compared with 58 in 2012. New Delhi last week announced it would require citizens from Pakistan and other polio-affected nations travelling to India to take a mandatory vaccination for the disease at least six weeks prior to their departure.

Dear Rotary Club Mid Jersey Cape,
          Thank you all for nominating me to be Middle Township's Service Above Self/Student of the Month for this month. I am an honors student at Middle Township High School who tries to be involved in as many extra-curricular activities as I can. I am a member of French Club, Italian-American Club, Math League, Student Council, and Key Club. I also was recently picked to be a performer in this year's musical at the high school. I also am the Parliamentarian for my sophomore class and have been since last year.
          Throughout each year, I try to do all I can to be involved in my community. I volunteer in my community mainly through the Key Club at Middle Township High School. In Key Club, we adopt a family each year, and with this family, we do as much as we can to help them get through each year as easily as possible. As Christmas approaches, we try with everything we can to give them supplies they need and/or want to help them. I also volunteer at monthly events called "Caring for Kids", there the student volunteers, such as myself, entertains the kids of families who are struggling while the parents are educated on how they can make their children's lives the best they can be. In addition, through Key Club, I volunteer at spontaneous events such as "Disability Day", where I went to Avalon Elementary school and helped serve lunch to everyone at the event.
Thank you again for this nomination!

MJC Rotary hosts dinner for young professionals of Milan
The Mid Jersey Cape Rotary hosted a dinner in honor of the group exchange study from Milan on May 2, 2013 at the Wildwood Golf and Country Club. Cape May Courthouse   
The event- chaired by MJC President Francey Burke was in honor of the GSE Team of young professionals namely, Daniele Castelli, Engineer- Pharma Industry, Giulia Centonze, Marketing Assistant in the Wealth Management Division of Detsche Bank, Elisabetta Colomba, Podiatrist, Giacomo Mainetti, Automation Engineer and team leader Maria Letizia Baldini who has been a Rotarian since 2006.
“It is indeed an honor for us to be given the opportunity to host this group of amazing young professionals.” MJC President Francey Burke said on her welcome address. The event began with an inspiring invocation by Rotarian Rev. Wayne Conrad. It was then followed by a short presentation by Rotarian Rachell Diaz who has recently moved to New Jersey from a Rotary Club in Malaysia. The presentation focused on what Rotary is about and the recent accomplishments and projects the Mid Jersey Cape Rotary has done.
Guests and Rotarians from neighboring Rotary clubs: Wildwood, Ocean City, Audubon, Port Norris, Somers Point, Woodbury, Bridgeton, Lower Township and Upper Township New Jersey, enjoyed dinner whilst the GSE team took everyone to an interactive trip to Milan and introduced themselves through a detailed presentation.
The MJC Rotary awarded each of the team members with a certificate of Appreciation and likewise the Milan group presented their token of appreciation to end the night.

It is estimated that about 500 people are killed each year by elephants, either where they live or in captive situations. If by a stroke of ill-fortune you are unlucky enough to come face-to-face with an angry elephant, your very survival is at stake. While there are no guarantees, knowing what to do when an elephant charges before your travel in elephant country or work with elephants is a sensible precaution. The aim is to stay alive!

Decide whether or not the elephant in the situation is actually going to charge. It is thought that most charges are "mock" (threat) charges, that is, the elephant is pretending to charge but is actually testing you out to see if you're aggressive or a non-threat. Be able to recognize the difference between an elephant who is making a mock charge and an elephant who is about to trample you. 

Watch the elephant's ears. If an elephant's ears are relaxed, he is probably making a mock charge. Ears that are fanned out are indicative of a mock charge.

If the elephant's ears are pinned back flat, it is likely that the charge is real. This will often be accompanied by a trunk that is curled inward.

Listen for warnings. You're likely to hear trumpeting of a warning from the elephant.

Look for displacement activities. There are some other indicators of an elephant working out whether to charge or retreat. These include a twitching trunk and swinging one leg to and fro. The biologist responsible for discovering this, Dr. George Schallar, realized that the more pronounced these "displacement activities", the more likely the elephant was making a threatening show out of fear and had no intention to really charge.

Image Hello, my name is Julianna Biederman and I am a student at Middle Township High School.  I have lived in Cape May Court House all my life and I am an identical triplet. My sisters’ names are Alexandra and Veronica; they also attend classes with me at Middle Township High School.  I am currently a junior in high school and involved in many clubs and was elected to be the Public Relations person for Interact. I am working hard in school and look forward to furthering my education after next year in college.  Where, that might be, I am not sure yet. 


One thing I enjoy a lot is helping others. I know that I am very blessed and that there are a lot of less fortunate people in the world.  I truly believe that one person can really make a difference and change the world.  The clubs I am involved in are Interact club, Red Cross club, Go green club, Bible Club, and Art club.  All the clubs I am involved in believe strongly in students giving of their time to others.   This school year alone, I have done 24 hours of community service.  Many of these hours were through my involvement with Interact.  The volunteering is really rewarding and lets me see how lucky I am.  Some of the volunteering I liked the best was Caring for Kids, going to the Wildwood Fire Hall & Atlantic City Mission to sort clothing, and serving food at the Baptist Church with other members of Rotary. Being involved in these activities has taught me a lot and helped me become more mature.  From these experiences, I know that service to others will always play a role in my life.


            After high school I think I may want to join the Peace Corp for a year and then attend college.  I would like to become a dentist so a college and major that would prepare me for this career is my plan. I am excited for what awaits me in the future and am thankful for how blessed I am.

Marketing Genius, Thrifty Customer, or Hoarders

Way back in the late 80s  we had business cards made up with a $1.00 off Coupon on the back for a propane tank refill.  We didn’t put any expiration dates on these cards and each time we had them printed they were a different color.  An estimated count we probably gave out over ten thousands of these cards.

The last of these cards were printed in 1988 0r 1989, we also ran dollar off coupons for propane in local newspapers The Gazette and Sandpaper.  We still have customers bringing in the business card coupon on a regular basis. Now fast forward to Memorial Day weekend 2012,  we had a customer bring in a newspaper coupon for a dollar off.  To the best of my knowledge this is at least a twenty five [25] year old coupon.  

Was this marketing genius, I think not,  do we have thrifty customer, yes some or are they just plain hoarders, yes to hold on to a newspaper coupon for 25 plus years  for a dollar off is just insane.

Houston we have a problem.  Everyone knows this famous saying, now we have a new one "Mid Jersey Cape Rotary we have a problem".  That's right MJC has a problem, along with District 7640.  What is that problem? MEMBERSHIP  Rotary International has us on their list, [clubs with membership below 20] MJC membership is currently 17 members, District 7640 has approximately 1225 members below 1200 and RI will be looking to merge the District with another. [for Rotary year 2012-2013 District membership needs to be above 1300].

What can be done.  MJC needs a net increase in membership of three [3] new members
NOW and every year forward.  This is not the Club or District problem, this is your problem as a member of Rotary.  Do your part and help grow not only MJC, but the District, and Rotary International.

If every Club in the District had a net increase of just three [3] new members each year that's 150 plus members per year.
