York-East "Dreams Big" with a Community Project

Since 1987, The Rotary Club of York-East has had a long history of supporting our local and international communities.  In celebration of our 35th Anniversary Year and in conjunction with Rotary International’s “Imagine” Theme, York-East undertook a “Dream Big” Community Project to award $10,000 to a local cause. The club sought out Dream BIG project ideas from members and looking for local organizations to support. The club members heard from several well deserving grant applicants and choose the Advantage Program because it’s sustainability and impact on the youth in our local community. The Advantage Program is a youth mentorship program geared to expose middle and high school aged children to life’s opportunities. Mentors and mentees meet weekly on Saturday’s for a two-hour time period. During these sessions the curriculum includes topics such as entrepreneurship, financial literacy, civil engagement, culinary arts, athletics, and business principles. Once per month, the Advantage Program aims to expose participating youth to an event or venue outside of York County such as, HBCU’s, NASA, music concerts, college sporting events, historic museums, and other professional sporting events. The overall goal of the Advantage Program is to expose our youth to different life opportunities as well as multiple career paths. The program hopes to be able to provide necessary school items during the school year as well as a scholarship to college. By helping each youth to create a plan for their lives and identifying possible career paths and opportunities, they believe they can keep each student focused on positivity and achieving their goals.

The Rotary Clubs of Mechanicsburg-North, D7390 Passport, West Shore, and Yellow Breeches hosted one of the largest and most successful RMB District 7390 networking events in District 7390 RMB history on February 15 at the Classic Rock Design Center.  Roughly 60 Rotarians from at least 14 district clubs representing all areas of our district attended this networking event.  
The event had all the components of a great RMB meeting with enthusiastic networking where many connections were made, a beautiful venue, great food and drink and much fun and fellowship.  Kudos to hosting club leaders, John Anthony, Mary Brunski, other members of the RMB District Steering Committee and to the venue owners for combining their efforts to produce this great result.  Congratulations to all and well done.

Welcome DGND Mary Brunski!

The District 7390 Leadership is proud to welcome our newest team member District Governor Nominee Designate Mary Brunski!  Mary will become District Governor during the 2025-2026 Rotary Year.
Mary has been a Rotarian since 2013 and is a member of the Rotary Club of Carlisle. Professionally, Mary has worked in Employee Communications, Services Marketing, Education, and now in Financial Services.  She owns Demeter Financial Services where she provides financial advice, health insurance and Medicare insurance guidance.  
Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, she moved with her mom to Ohio where she graduated from high school and then attended The Ohio State University.  She earned a BS in Communications and Economics before moving to Dallas, Texas with her husband Paul. Much of her work there was in marketing for Architectural, Engineering and Construction Companies.  They moved back to Pennsylvania with their two children to be near family.
Mary has been active in the community, volunteering and serving on the Boards of the Amelia S Givin Library, the Helen O Krause Animal Foundation, American Association of University Women and Rotary!    She was an Assistant Leader for a local Girl Scout troop, helping four girls achieve the highest award of Gold.  
Her focus now is her business, Rotary and continuing to learn new things.  Her current favorite quote is:  "At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built; not what we got but what we shared; not our competence but our character; and not our success, but our significance.  Live a life that matters.  Live a life of love."  Unknown
