Rotary International is a worldwide organization with over 1.2 million members in over 200 countries around the world, committed to six areas of focus; Literacy, Clean Water and Sanitation, Child and Maternal Health, Disease Prevention, Economic Growth and Peace and Conflict Resolution. Rotary District 6970 is located in Northeast Florida and is one of 541 Districts around the world with 63 Rotary Clubs, serving over 3300 Rotarians. The Rotary Club of Flagler County is in District 6970.
Jeanette joined the Rotary Club of Flagler County in 2004, after relocating
with her family from Forked River, NJ, where she began serving Rotary in 1997. Jeanette was Club President in 2009-10 and has served District 6970 in a variety of positions including District Secretary, District Trainer and has participated on a variety of District committees. In January 2017, Jeanette traveled to India and had a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in a National Immunization Day to immunize the children of a small village outside of New Delhi against Polio. Rotary began the initiative to eradicate Polio in 1985, and has since partnered with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and many countries throughout the world. Polio remains endemic in three countries; Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. There have been 8 reported cases YTD and until all countries are declared Polio free, the children of the world must continue to be immunized.
Jeanette's husband Tracy is also a Rotarian and immediate past-president of the Rotary Club of Flagler County. They have two children, Timothy and Zachary and two grandchildren. Both boys have served Rotary alongside of their parents in many Rotary projects throughout the years and their 4-year-old granddaughter participated in her first service project this past year planting trees at Princess Place Preserve.
Jeanette is a Realtor® with Palm Coast Real Estate where interestingly and not by coincidence, her business partner, Bill Lyon is also a Rotarian and past-president. Jeanette is a Lifetime Member of the Girl Scouts and is a member of the Flagler County Association of Realtors, the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce and serves the community in a variety of other capacities whenever possible.
