THE YEAR IN REVIEW
THE ROTARY CLUB OF HARRISBURG Report from the President
This year’s successes at our centennial Club are all about you. You the members, the volunteers, the committee chairs and the leadership of the Rotary Club of Harrisburg – 23rd in all the world.
You have made it possible for YCDT youth to find within themselves their power to be a leader and a community problem solver. You made it possible for the aging homeless couple to find sources of needed medications through, soon to be repeated, member participation with the Capital Area Coalition on Homelessness. You have made it possible for our Dominican Republic dental mission to vastly improve the oral health of hundreds of children. You have given middle school children in our own backyard a voice through writing and submitting their Four-Way Test essays. You have prevented polio from striking youngsters in India and brought the worldwide eradication of polio closer.
Through these outstanding and countless other examples of Service Above Self, you have helped the Club meet and exceed our two other strategic initiatives. Media coverage in print or on television increased the brand awareness of who Rotary is and what Rotary does. And, you have attracted new members to one of the most dynamic Rotary Clubs in our District 7390 and Rotary International. Your efforts have demonstrated how Rotarians can Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.
It has been such a joy and rewarding experience to serve you as President for this seemingly very short year. Of course, we all owe our Executive Director, Linda Freedenberg, a rousing Rotary applause for making the myriad of details come together for the smooth and effective management and future of our Club.
I encourage every RCH member to continue and expand your service to our Club, our community, our District and the world. Nowhere can one person make such a difference for so many. Thank you and see you at that next committee meeting or service project?
Yours in Rotary,
