Milli Martin was chosen Rotarian of the Year for 2012-2013 because of her important work as their Community Service Chair, according to Rotarian president Karrie Youngblood.
“She headed up so many of our wonderful projects,” Youngblood said. “She worked very hard this year and I wanted to recognize that.
Here are just a few of the projects she headed up.
“With Milli’s guidance Rotarians worked on the following projects; the Lexile library Project at West Homer Library, the Ben Walters adopt a park project, Rotary Homer Library Garden and clean up day,” Youngblood said.
“With our Homer Foundation funds she wrote grants to Share the Spirit, the Lions Thanksgiving baskets, the Boys and Girls Club, the Food pantry and Haven House,” she added. “We supported a child in the Imaginary Library and donated funds to the Delta Kappa Gama sorority for the Food Pantry Back Pack and school supply project. We also purchased a brand new washing machine for Haven House since theirs was on its last leg.
“Milli played a significant role in all of these projects. She is truly an incredible woman and a shining example of what being a Rotarian is all about.”
