A new environment committee is being launched by our District in response to an outpouring of interest expressed during a recent Environmental Summit hosted by District Membership Chair PDG John Anthony.  The Summit brought together Rotarians from 7 different clubs that had a passion for Rotary’s 7th area of focus! The three questions posed at the Summit were:
  1. How are our clubs currently having a positive environmental impact?
  2. How can we collectively do better to protect the environment?
  3. How can we expand our reach and bring more new members into Rotary through our passion for protecting the Environment?
The committee chair will be Rob Altenburg who is a member of the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg-North and is the Director of the Energy Center at Penn Future. Rob is also a member of ESRAG which is Rotary International’s Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group.  There were so many great ideas expressed at the Environmental Summit that the group committed to forming a committee and continuing the conversation.  Any interested Rotarians and guests are invited to join the group at their next meeting on:
Wednesday, March 8th at 7 PM on Zoom
