Five members of Atlantic Cape’s Circle K Club attended the New Jersey District Convention in Edison, March 17-19. They attended leadership workshops, participated in a service project creating gift baskets for families who stay at the local Ronald McDonald House, and interacted with Circle K Club members from Stockton, Rowan, Rutgers and TCNJ. Circle K’s motto is “Live to serve, love to serve.”  Pictured left to right are: Anthony Patrizi, Mazhural Hague, Ryan Grant, Brittany Barnett, Donna Marie McElroy (club adviser) and Molly Thompson (who was the District Editor for this past year).
