Longtime Los Gatos resident and member of the Ginger Taylor McDonald has been invited to the White House on April 20.
The special invitation from Rotary International President Kalyan Banergee notes the day long meeting as an opportunity for high-level U.S. government officials and Rotary representatives to discuss how they're addressing key issues impacting communities across the country and the globe.
“It’s a great honor to join the voice of one of 1.2 million Rotarians who give millions of volunteer hours and dollars to improve the lives of others. I look forward to the experience, which I will forever cherish,” says McDonald.
As part of the proceedings, the White House and Rotary will recognize key service projects and individuals who are making a difference in the lives of ordinary Americans.
These “Champions of Change” will come from across the country and best exemplify the Rotary motto of “Service above Self," says club spokesman Bob Long.
McDonald is a Rotary International public image coordinator for California, Arizona and Nevada, Long says.
As a retired Silicon Valley high tech marketing executive, she shares her years of experience to guide Rotarians on ways to build awareness of Rotary projects.
She brings her characteristic energy and acute skills in public relations to clubs throughout the zone by extending the practices sharpened locally with her home Club of Los Gatos Morning Rotary.
"We all look forward to hearing what national and global stories and impressions she returns with. We wish her all the best," Long adds.
