Thank You Club Treasurer, Andy Hetrick
The Rotary Club of Harrisburg would like to thank and recognize the contributions of Andy Hetrick on the board of directors. Andy is the Commercial Banking Group Manager at M&T Bank and has been a member of this club for 15 years. In addition to serving the club as treasurer he volunteered with Interact, which is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Andy also co-chairs the Habitat for Humanity committee with Scott Stevens and has helped on many build/repairs projects with club members. We are grateful for your calm and friendly approach to all things finance, and your time and talent on the board of directors. Thank you for your leadership, Andy Hetrick!
Rotarian Bob Saline reports that he visited two venerable and treasured members last week, and here is his report:
I visited Joan Prescott at VibraLife in Room 614.  She's doing better now after her two falls.  We chatted for some time and swapped stories of Rotary and our community.  Joan lives just a few houses from ours in Green Lane Farms.
She's doing well in rehab and walking farther every day.  She really appreciates the cards she gets from fellow Rotarians.
On Wednesday, I visited Betty Hungerford at Homeland Center.  I went into her room looking for the "Million Dollar Birthday Girl," and she started laughing.  Naturally, she looked very professional and well.  Her rehabilitation is going well as she can navigate a long hallway outside her room with a walker. 
Her goal is to get back to work and drive again.  And, you know she will.  She welcomes visitors and cards.  If visiting, call ahead.  Betty has a very busy schedule!
If you would like to send greetings to Joan and Betty here is their current contact information:

Meeting Minutes
June 13, 2022
Submitted by Sam Levine
President Matt called the meeting to order shortly after noon, calling on James Good to offer an invocation and John Hickey to lead the club in pledge and song.  Angela Tatum introduced several guests, including Goeff Harper, a recent graduate from Camp Hill who is a Rotary Exchange Student heading to Thailand.
Prior to opening the annual meeting and introducing our guest speaker, President Matt made the following announcements:
  • There will be an end of year celebration on June 21st at the West Shore Country Club from 5:30 to 7:30
  • Our next service project is scheduled for June 27th at the Central Penn Food Bank from 5:00 to 7:00
  • There will be a slight dues increase announced shortly, as it is impossible to hold the dues structure that has been in place for over 10 years
President Matt called on former Harrisburg Rotary President and District Governor Una Martone to open our annual meeting to present the slate of officers for 2022-23 term. Una thanked current and outgoing officers for their dedicated service to the club. Our new slate of officers will be joining Jennifer Jones, who has been nominated to be the first woman to ever assume the role of Rotary International President. The new slate of officers, unanimously approved by the club are as follows: Elizabeth (Beth) Mihmet, President; Ellen Brown, President Elect; Scott Stevens, Vice President; Matt Staub, Immediate Past President; James Good, Secretary and Andy Rebuck, Sergeant at Arms. The Board of Directors include Meghan Bachmore, Vladimir Beaufils, Brian Ostella, Robert Geiger, Toni Lyn Mark, Steve Schwartz, Michele Tantardini and Wendell Hoover.
After the election of our officers and board, President Matt introduced fellow Rotarian Domenic DeYulis for his classification talk. Although Domenic is new to our club, he was a prior member of the Latrobe Rotary Club prior to relocating to the Harrisburg area. Domenic moved to Harrisburg to manage the local office of Worklink Staffing, a staffing agency that is family owned. Domenic resides in Harrisburg, along with his girlfriend and pets and is looking forward to becoming an active member of the Harrisburg Rotary Club.
Mary Oliveira was called on to introduce our speaker for the day, Valerie Pritchett. As an anchor for ABC 27 News, Valerie is well known throughout the area, not only as a broadcaster, but as one who has been involved in many community initiatives, including Val’s Kids. Valerie Pritchett anchors abc27 News at 5, 7, and 11 p.m. weeknights.
Valerie came to Harrisburg after beginning her career in South Jersey. Her passion for giving children in Pennsylvania a world in which to grow and thrive was sparked by a foster mother she met who had cared for dozens of infants in need. As a result, Valerie created “Val’s Kids.” This special segment shares stories of children looking for adoptive homes through the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network. In answer to a question, Valerie estimated that 40% of the kids presented were able to find their forever home
Valerie’s production and reporting of Operation Safe Kids, a feature promoting fire safety and the installation of smoke alarms, was instrumental in abc27 winning a Service to Community Award from the National Association of Broadcasters. The award is one of the highest honors a broadcast television station can earn.
Her love of Central Pennsylvania drives Valerie as an active community volunteer, serving as a board member for the Salvation Army Advisory Board, United Way of the Capital Region, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, and Catholic Charities.  Valerie’s work for nonprofits includes Harrisburg Police Athletic League, American Cancer Society, Harrisburg Symphony, and she raises puppies for Susquehanna Service Dogs. As part of her presentation, Valerie introduced us to her adoptive Service Dog Molly, who was patiently waiting under the table for her introduction. Needless to say, Molly was a big hit!
President Matt thanked Valerie for her presentation and closed the meeting with a reminder that there was no meeting next week and that our final meeting of the Rotary year will be held on June 27th. The meeting was adjourned at 12:50.
