Liz MartinFrom: 2014-2015
Liz directed a good part of club efforts this year towards the children and youth of Lancaster County.
Many members volunteered for the McCaskey High School Mentoring Program with a gala celebration of student program graduation at a club meeting where we saw how the program made a difference in the young people’s lives.
The Group Study Exchange Committee did a wonderful job of welcoming young professional from both the Czech Republic and the Republic of Slovakia and helped them learn about both the United States and the Rotary Club of Lancaster.
The Youth Exchange Committee ensured that our youth exchange student from Ecuador had a meaningful year in the US.
The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Committee held a leadership event at Messiah College supporting students from McCaskey High School, Lancaster Country Day School and Lancaster Catholic High School.
The Club donated $10,000 each to six local nonprofit organizations that assisted abused and food insecure children.
Out Summer Youth Experience was successful in providing positive experiences to at risk youth.
We had fun and fellowship at our quarterly mixer events and high quality speakers at our weekly meetings.
The Membership Committee recruited 20 new members, bringing the Club total membership to 235 members with at least three new inductees pending. Our Rotary Information Committee has been effective in orienting new members to Rotary and our Club. Liz urged all Club members to focus on recruiting and inviting potential members to join.
