Speaking with Downtown State College Rotary Club

On Thursday, March 26, I had the enjoyment of speaking with the Downtown State College Rotary Club. Due to renovations at their previous location, the club met at Toftrees Resort and Conference Centre over lunch.

I spoke about how a healthy community provides affordable housing for young families, young professionals, and first-time homebuyers. While affordable housing costs matter and should consist of no more than 30% of a families’ monthly income, CCHLT also supports and empowers first-time homebuyers to be successful as homeowners through education and program guidelines.

Thank you to the Downtown State College Rotary Club for being an enthusiastic audience! I look forward to sharing with all of you again in the future. Thank you to Harry Zimbler of Centre County Gazette for the article of the presentation. Please take some time to read it. Thank you also to Rotary member, Heidi Zimbler, for the beautiful mug.
