Introducing Maggie Barnes, District 7120 Calendar Coordinator
It is my pleasure to introduce Maggie Barnes who recently volunteered to be our District Calendar Coordinator. A native of Buffalo, she graduated from Medaille College with a degree in communications. She has worked as a reporter, editor, public relations person, marketer, college teacher, and writer. She currently works for Corning Community College in the Workforce Education Department where she helps local companies get the training they need for their employees.
Maggie is also a FEMA-Certified Public Information Officer and a member of the Southern Tier Incident Management Team. She teaches crisis communication to first responders for the Department of Homeland Security.

Maggie is a passionate writer and has been published many times in Mountain Home magazine. She has won two statewide and three national awards for her articles.
Maggie is married to Robert, the Public Safety Director for Bradford County, Pa. They live on a hilltop in Waverly with a herd of cats, one bemused dog and five acres of land.
Maggie will help us leverage the potential in communicating our club and district events. This includes fundraising, service projects, fellowship, public service. education and training events, just to name a few.
In the next few weeks, we will begin using a new event category on the calendar.  This is the “HELP NEEDED” category.  When your club holds an event where additional help is needed to work the event, the club can add a duplicate event on the same date prefaced with “Help Wanted” and the event title to let Rotarians checking the calendar know that your club is looking for volunteers for that event.  Your club can explain, in detail, how others can help in the “Description” field.
Just a final note: Clubs that are using Clubrunner at the Club level should know that events they wish to have appear on the District Calendar can be accomplished simply by clicking “Yes” on the ‘Show Event in District Calendar’ option.
