  • Brief Description: 
    We have had about 150 posts this past year with 1,999 likes to the posts. We post a picture of each meeting’s speaker, pictures from events and link to positive media about club members. We also use the events function to invite people to our events and let the public know about activities to participate in and help us raise more funds to give away.

    Our club also has a YouTube page, LinkedIn page and Twitter account that we used to a much more limited amount.
  • Participation of Club Members: 
    All our board members with Facebook have the ability to post which is about 10% of the club is active on our social media. We have 1073 likes.
  • Resulting Benefits: 
    Our social media has been a tremendous help to our public image and letting the community know about our activities. Of our 1073 likes, 552 (51%) are in Warren County and over 100 more are within District 7570. Although the majority of our fans/likes are in the United States we have fans/likes in over 40 countries, including India, Australia, Canada, the Philippines, Jamaica, Ukraine, Bangladesh and Vietnam.

    We have an average of 850 impressions per day with one post (requesting applications for our “Doc” Smith Christmas Baskets) getting over 2,000 impressions which resulted in a number of applicants for the food baskets.
