Millbrook Rotary President (2010-11) Ellie Savoy discusses her background, her Rotary training, and her personal philosophy of commitment, compassion, understanding, thoughtfulness, ability to plan, attention to details, and flexibility. Together these help Ellie lead her club in its many humanitarian activities. Millbrook Rotarians annually publish a free directory of businesses and services in the immediate area, a vital resource to residents and a boost to businesses. The club’s literacy program provides dictionaries for all third graders and a book of choice to all eighth grade graduates. Millbrook’s international exchange programs include high school students and professional adults. Members embark on road clean-ups four times a year and contribute to food pantries and soup kitchens.
