The Rotary Club of Harrisburg is going BIG this year!  Sure, this Club continues to do big things in their community, but this year they are letting everyone in town know about it with a big billboard initiative.
President, Andy Rebuck, accepted the gavel in July promising the membership lots of complimentary billboards with three neat strategies.
First, each week a member is invited to give a 120 second update on their role in the Club. Then they receive a Service Above Self coffee mug, and as Andy would say, “their mug (photo) is proudly displayed on a People of Action billboard.”
Second, the Club hosts “Good News Reporting” with a goal of raising $5,000 total this year for the Polio Plus funds and members who report are entered into a drawing and are featured on End Polio Now billboards.
Third, everyone loves new members and wants to jump up and down to shout hooray and welcome, and this year Harrisburg is featuring new members on a billboard.
If you are reading this note and wondering how this is possible, please note that the Club President also happens to be VP/GM of a local billboard company.  His advice is if you like this idea, you might want to send a note to your local billboard company asking them to consider similar support—and of course invite them to join your Club. 
We certainly hope you are all having a big year in Rotary and if we can provide any more information or assistance with this idea, please contact our Club Administrator, Addeline Alaniz-Edwards,
