The Rotary Club of New Market Board of Directors (BOD) in action -- no we are not taking a nap ! Our Board of Directors provide both the strategic direction and continuity and decision making required to run a diverse service organization. It is by no means an easy task and requires many additional hours spent outside normal club meetings. This has been a very busy summer for the Rotary Club of New Market and our BOD has kept us on track as we continue to serve both the local community and the world around us through Service Above Self !

GUEST VISITORS


The Rotary Club of New Market was honored to have as its guest speaker Dr. Dan Hadacek who spoke to the Club about revitalizing existing but unused railroad lines in the Shenandoah Valley. The Rails with Trails (RWT) concept would retain the existing rail line in the Shenandoah Valley supplemented by bike and walking trails or "Rails with Trails." This proposed option alleviates I-81 corridor truck traffic, provides supply chain options for business and trails. Thank you Dr. Hadacek for speaking to us today.

The Rotary Club of New Market was honored on August 17th to have as a guest speaker Lt. Glenn D Ogle Jr, Investigations Section Commander, Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office, Criminal Investigations Division. Lt Ogle provided a fascinating overview of the many challenges faced by the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Department. His unique insight and perspective was truly appreciated by all attendees and he gave the club an appreciation for the many challenges our men and women in blue face in a daily basis to keep us out of harm's way. Lt. Ogle though not a formal Rotarian has the heart and empathy of a Rotarian and we are blessed to have him as a member of local community.


Mr. Bruce Powers, General Manager New Market Poultry, provides a fascinating overview of the operation of the poultry processing plant in New Market which is our largest employer and a responsible member of the local business community. Bruce took time out of his busy schedule to describe in detail what occurs within their plant and the challenges he faces on a daily basis to keep such a large operation moving forward.
It was GREAT to have him as our speaker.
