Rotary International: It isn’t an age. It’s an attitude.

Jon Alhart joined Rotary in 2010 as a charter member of the Pen-Web Rotary Club.  His undergraduate work at Ithaca College prepared him for the broadcast profession.  After several years of on-air television experience, he returned to Rochester where he now is a public relations supervisor at the Dixon-Schwabl Agency.  In this video, Jon and his two Rotarian contemporaries, attorney Sara Visingard and Development/Communications specialist Lindsey Dixon, explain how Rotary and their professions mesh.

Come, Join Penfield Rotary

Come join us collage 2014

Rotary International recently released a video and song entitled “Come Join us.”  The photos of Penfield Rotary’s newest members have been incorporated into that video.  They were inducted by DG Jeff Krans on December 14, 2010.  This is the song written by Jerry Mills which was inspired by RI President Ray Klinginsmith and the work of Rotarians worldwide.  The video was produced by Rotarian Bob Gallagher with full cooperation from Jerry Mills.
