The Rotary Club of Medina increased their roster by two at their meeting on April 27th. Heather Beach Smith and Peter Bartula were guests of the club and joined at the conclusion of the meeting.
Heather Beach Smith is the Executive Director of Orleans Community Health Foundation. Says Heather:
I grew up in Medina and all of my life my family has been involved in a variety of community based organizations. Part of me always knew that I would do the same one day. I chose to join Rotary for a couple of reasons. First, I loved the connection Rotary has with the world through its efforts to eradicate polio, a disease that has affected my family. Second, as part of my job I wanted to be connected with an organization that gives to the community. Working at the OCH Foundation I am always seeking support from the community. This is my way of returning the favor and giving back.
Peter Bartula recently moved into the area after selling his Rochester company Computer Systems Asset Disposal. Peter has started a new venture, See New York With Us. He is now looking to become more involved in the community and has had a tremendous impact on our Rotary Club already.
Welcome aboard, Heather and Peter!
