Check out this great “Spotlight on Community Partners” video from Fayette County Public Schools featuring Rotary Club of Lexington and our “Coats For Kids/Santa Program”. By providing Santas and Elves each year as part of the Kentucky Horse Park’s Southern Lights event, the Rotary Club of Lexington has been able to provide over 10,000 coats to children in need in Fayette County. What a great video and what a tremendous program, one which truly demonstrates our commitment as a Club to “Service Above Self”.
Spotlight on Community Partners – Rotary Club of Lexington
Description: LEXINGTON, KY – The Rotary Club of Lexington will hold its weekly meeting Thursday, February 13, at 12:00 p.m., at Fasig-Tipton, 2400 Newtown Pike. The keynote speaker will be Lexington Mayor Jim Gray.
The former CEO of Gray Construction, an international construction firm, Jim Gray brought his executive approach to the Mayor’s Office in 2011.
He came into office with three priorities: Create jobs, run government efficiently and build a great American city.
In 2½ years, he has ended structural deficits, reduced multi-million-dollar subsidies in employee insurance, and put the city’s pension on a sustainable path, a reform that has become a national model.
Currently, Mayor Gray is working to reactivate Lexington’s urban core. Internationally recognized designers are building an arts and entertainment district around legendary Rupp Arena and resurrecting the Town Branch, the buried water source around which Lexington was founded in 1775. Together, the projects create a fabric of parks and public space through the heart of Lexington’s downtown.
Mayor Gray is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and in 1996 was appointed a Loeb Fellow at Harvard University.
