Janet MacKay, Executive Director of the Victims Resource Center (VRC) was the guest speaker at the March 1 Rotary Luncheon at Purkey's Pink Apple. 

VRC has helped 295 victims and their families in Wyoming County from July through Dec 2017. They also presented various prevention programs to kids in our schools.

They have started a Medical Advocacy project to teach emergency/law enforcement personnel how to screen for domestic violence and to supply them with options as to what the individual can do.  VRC is also starting a support group for domestic violence victims.

The VRC Geranium sale is coming up with the flowers to be available the Tuesday before Mother’s Day. They will begin taking orders next month. 

After Janet’s brief presentation, Pres. Samantha Maruzzelli presented Janet with a check for $1,000 to support the Victims Resource Center.
