Katherine Oh will be installed as the 98th President of the Rotary Club of Hazleton at the annual Presidents Party to be held at the Valley Country Club on June 27, 2018.

Kathie has been a member of the Rotary Club of Hazleton for five years and she was sponsored for membership by Mary Celeste Kosko.

When asked what her goals for the club would be, Kathie replied, “This years Rotary theme is "Be The Inspiration" and I believe the goals of the Hazleton Rotary Club for the upcoming fiscal year should be to see that we are answering “yes” to each of our “4 way test” questions as we plan and complete each of our community services and projects.


The Rotary 4 way test asks:
First: is it the TRUTH?
Second: is it FAIR to all concerned?
Third: Will it build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIP?
Fourth: Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
If we can answer “yes” as we complete each service or project, then we can “Be the Inspiration” needed to best serve the Greater Hazleton Community and we will have met my goals as Hazleton Rotary President for the upcoming year.”

She is the co-owner, along with husband Ting, and Marketing Director of Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center, 1077 North Church Street, Hazle Township. Their facility opened at this new location in the fall of 2017.

Kathie officially takes over the reins of the club on July 1, 2018. Other officers and Board members will be: President Elect, Alan Whitaker; Vice President, Gary Lawler; Recording Secretary, Lani Drobnock; Treasurer, Pat Owens; Sergeant-at-Arms, John Schwear and 1st Past President, Toni Christman. Members of the Board will be: Tim Genetti, Gene Dougherty, Jim Kelshaw, Tom Lagana, Joe Lettiere, Carla Thaller, Kim McNulty, Jason Brenner, and John Beltrami. Pat Korb will continue as Publicity Coordinator.
