Ruth was instrumental in the development of our Face Book Page providing input and guidance as needed. She is our photographer at all of our events, meetings and projects. She has provided numerous articles to our local News Gazette and to our Dist. Informer. Her article about our New Rotary Club in Town received prominent placement in the local newspaper and left no doubt in its readership that RCLL hit the ground running and was ready to do good in our community and the world. She attends, photographs and chronicles our monthly Vocational visits. She has mentored our members on how to use media to promote our club to potential members and the community. She attended the Dist membership/PI event to expand her skills to better assist our club. Provided help in the creation of our trifold brochure used to inform and promote our club. Ruth is always looking for ways to project our Public Image through media. A great writer, photographer and the consummate Rotarian.
