REPORT FROM THE PRESIDENT
It has been my honor to have served as your President for the past year! I am so proud to be a Rotarian as are YOU!
This past year has been about service projects, networking and outstanding weekly speakers. Thanks, Czar!
Our service projects have included the highly successful Vision Screening program at Hamilton Health Center, Habitat for Humanity. Blood Drive, YCDT, CARE Court, the restoration of the Victim’s Room in the police station – now called the Family Resource Room – Project Homeless Connect and the Salvation Army Bell Ringing to name a few.
Branding of Rotary has been beefed up with Rotary Belle now permanently in front of City Hall, Rotary displays throughout the lobby of City Hall, sale of Rotarians at Work tee shirts, Follow Me To the Rotary Club of Harrisburg bumper magnets and the addition of Paul Harris Ribbons on our name badges.
Although we did not increase membership by the goal of a NET of 23, we have added 27 new members with young and enthusiastic members. We are the membership leader in District 7390!
Through our Resource Development efforts, we had the best pancake breakfast ever, raised funds for the Haiti water initiative as well as the dental project in the Dominican Republic and had the first ever Kiss A Pig event! The Club Foundation issues an RFP, which resulted in Rotary Gives Back to non profit agencies, ecology awards and scholarships.
Thanks to all members and committee chairs for their leadership! Thanks also to Linda for her support.
I look forward to supporting Betty as she takes the gavel!
Yours in Rotary,
Karen F. Snider
