Classification Talks
Two of our newer members gave their classification talks.  Clint Forry and Kim Flickinger have a couple of things in common besides being new to Gettysburg Rotary; both have careers with financial institutions, and both noted their commitment to giving back to the community. 
Clint is a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones at the Littlestown office.  Clint has a passion for helping people achieve their financial goals.  He admitted to keeping a close eye on their family finances….even questioning his wife once about a $5.00 expenditure (the marriage survived).  Clint provides investment seminars in retirement communities, 55+ living facilities, and churches.
Clint was home schooled.  He earned a B.S. Degree in Business Administration from York College after studying at Harrisburg Area Community College.  He is married and has two children.  His wife is a teacher in New Oxford.
Clint’s parents met each other in the mission field with the Mennonite Church, they married and lived in Ohio where he was born.  He has four siblings who have all been missionaries in interesting places throughout the world.  His family later moved to Pennsylvania; he has family in Hanover.   When Clint was a student he worked at Starbucks.
Kim is the Branch Manager at the Member’s 1st Federal Credit Union on Chambersburg Street in Gettysburg.  She noted that credit unions have changed over time.  Today, everyone qualifies for credit union membership with a small deposit.  She loves working with the volunteers on the credit union board and having her staff involved in charitable events in the community.
Kim began her career as a bank teller and has worked at financial institutions in the area for 40 years.  Kim is enthusiastic about her work.
Kim has been married to her husband for 36 years and has two grown daughters and two grandchildren. 
We welcome Clint and Kim to Gettysburg Rotary.
