The following is a portion of the Article in the SJ Times written by Bob Shyrock on August 22, 2014

 

Woodbury Rotary Park, located on East Barber Avenue near Evergreen, is a daily reminder of the considerable good exacted by the city's Rotary lunch club. In addition, the park serves as an ideal venue for the club's project-centered hierarchy, including new president Wanda Lee McIlvaine, who, in fact, is the only woman in Woodbury lunch club history to hold that lofty position.

And Wanda Lee has the Budd family bloodlines. She's the daughter of "Mr. Rotary," Herbert A. Budd  Jr., past district governor and former two-term club president, whose Rotary attire is as impressive as a 5-star general's.

 

Wanda's presidential platform has been centered around the cozy park.

"It's my goal as president," she says, "to raise sufficient funds to complete the service walks designed by Gloucester County's landscape architect through my father, the project coordinator, in 2011."  Past president Tony Yula chairs a lunch club committee that is responsible for spring and fall park cleanup.  "It's a joint effort by our club and the city of Woodbury ... whatever is needed to beautify the park," Wanda says??

 

Centerpiece is the Eppel Children's Garden, erected in a memorial tribute to Larry and Nancy Eppel, and dedicated June 13, 2009, seven months after they died in a Woodbury house fire.

The Eppels served the children of the county for more than 25 years. A pediatrician, Larry was a Rotarian for the same time frame in addition to being past president and a Paul Harris Fellow.

Says Wanda Lee, "Together their caring spirit exemplified Rotary's motto: "Service Above Self."

 

"We're also promoting the park's memorial upgrade, 'Buy a Brick,' which honors veterans, past, present, peacetime, wartime, living or deceased, all branches. The memorial is dedicated to all who have served our country." The park's memorial brick becomes a permanent tribute to all who have served. 

Single bricks are $75, doubles $150 and up. Each brick consists of three lines with a maximum of 15 characters, spaces and punctuation on each line. Checks should be made payable to Woodbury Rotary and sent to P.O. Box 261, Woodbury 08096. For more information, call 456-1329.
