  • Brief Description: 
    The Rotary Club of Front Royal has a Public Relations Committee that has the sole responsibility of advertising upcoming Rotary events, sending out press releases of Club/Member news, and being prepared with statements to the Press if needed. There are several media outlets that cover our area including WZRV 95.3FM, The Northern Virginia Daily, The Warren Sentinel, The Warren County Report, The Royal Examiner, TV4 WHAG, and a local channel 15. This year a number of press releases were sent out and covered by all the local media outlets and one in particular caught the attention of the press. Rotarian Roy Boyles and his wife Sharon went to the West Virginia Flood Relief and it became news story #4 of the year in the Warren Sentinel. We were very proud of reaching the top 10 in news stories for the year.
  • Participation of Club Members: 
    There are two club members responsible for the public image campaign, but each Rotarian participates by submitting the news articles to the committee, participating in events that are news worthy or by promoting their events or special projects.
  • Resulting Benefits: 
    The benefit to public image is it allows the community and region to know who and what Rotary is and how we contribute back to the community and world.
