Beth Marcus has the official title of Business Manager at Cape Cod Beer, but wears many hats at Cape Cod’s original microbrewery.  When she and her husband Todd washed ashore in 1998, they dreamed of opening their own brewery.  In 2004 that dream became a reality!  Beth has been with Cape Cod Beer since its inception – when it was just an office in the basement of the Marcus house.  While she worked full time outside of the business for the first two years (mostly for health benefits for her family), she joined the company officially in 2006, and adopted the title of Business Manager – because there was no great way to describe all the stuff she does around the brewery – including finances, marketing, retail and so much more.  A technologist by training, economist by education and plate juggler by necessity, Beth is somehow involved in every aspect of Cape Cod Beer that does not involve the actual making and packaging of the beer.  That she leaves to her husband, Todd.  As the mother of a 12 year old business, two teenage boys (16 and 18 years old), two cats and a 8-year-old “puppy”, she does so with much passion and NOT much sleep.  A lover of all things local, when not working on or in her family business, she is working to help promote local business and support local charities that make up the community that she so deeply loves.

AMT Student Retention Specialist, Miles Tranchina - Miles has been in aviation maintenance technology-education for over 11 years plus 4 years as a public school teacher and 1 year as a case manager for the Department of Children and Families.  Miles has held Director positions in Student Services and Career Services.  His main responsibilities here at CCCC will include recruiting prospective students, assisting existing students' needs both academic and personal, and assisting graduates with FAA testing and career placement.

Since March, 2010, Andi Genser has proudly served as the Executive Director of WE CAN, a Cape Cod organization that empowers women to achieve lasting, positive change. Prior to her move to Cape Cod in 2008, Andi worked in the Boston area in a wide range of nonprofits that support children and families. In all of these roles Andi brings her passion for social justice, commitment to working in collaboration with others and focus on providing participant-centered services. Andi is a parent, grandparent and loves cycling the roads and bike paths of Cape Cod.

Bill O’Neill has been president of the Community Leadership Institute of Cape Cod since 2013. The mission of CLI is to foster the growth of existing and potential community leaders on Cape Cod and the Islands. Since 1992, CLI has helped 600 local leaders learn more about the issues facing Cape Cod and the Islands and how they can become more involved in providing the leadership needed in the community to help solve these problems.
Bill grew up roaming around Centerville and Osterville on bike and on foot, and graduated from Barnstable High School. He got his start in the communications industry delivering the Cape Cod Times on his bicycle. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics at Harvard College, where he was a reporter and editor for a weekly campus newspaper. Bill has worked as lifestyle editor for the Cape Cod Times and a freelance reporter for many print and online publications. Bill also has worked in Cape Cod’s nonprofit world, doing PR and fundraising for Housing Assistance Corporation and fundraising for the International Fund for Animal Welfare.

Virtual reality films bring new dimension to polio fight
At this year’s World Polio Day celebration in Atlanta, Rotary is harnessing the power of virtual reality technology to build empathy and inspire action in our fight to eradicate polio. Rotary, with support from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, produced a virtual reality film that tells the story of Alokita, a young adult who suffered paralysis from polio as a child growing up in India, which has been polio-free since 2011. “When you open your eyes and see a different environment around you, you relate to the subject on a visceral, personal level,” says Vincent Vernet, direct of digital and...
Rotary Day at UN highlights role of business in building a better world
From the United Nations’ earliest days in the aftermath of World War II, the organization’s humanitarian mission has always dovetailed with Rotary’s efforts to administer aid and build peace. This year’s Rotary Day at the United Nations, 12 November, will highlight the role businesses can play in that collaboration as we work toward a more just and equitable world. The theme of this year’s gathering at UN headquarters in New York City, “Responsible Business, Resilient Societies,” recognizes Rotary’s role at the intersection of commerce and cause. As leaders in their professions and...
ShelterBox prepares for Mosul refugees
Today marked the start of the battle to take control of Mosul back from the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS. The city is the group's last major stronghold in Iraq. But humanitarian aid agencies have known about the military offensive, giving them an unusual opportunity to prepare for the crisis. "It is rare for the world to get early warning of a vast human catastrophe," says Chris Warham, chief executive of ShelterBox. "The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees issued a paper in July saying this would likely be the biggest humanitarian crisis of the year — and we better get...
Skydivers raise thousands for polio eradication
The first time Noel Jackson jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet, it had nothing to do with raising money for polio eradication. The Michigan dentist had received a gift certificate to go skydiving from his staff because they knew he was into adventure. “It is definitely a defining moment,” says Jackson, a member of the Rotary Club of Trenton, Michigan, USA, of that first jump, done in tandem strapped to a professional skydiver. “The rush of the free fall is beyond anything I have ever experienced before. Just the speed and acceleration is unbelievable. You don’t even have time to figure out...
Rotary and ShelterBox on the ground in Haiti
Even as parts of Haiti were still recovering from a catastrophic 2010 earthquake, Hurricane Matthew tore through the impoverished island country 4 October, leaving hundreds dead and many more homeless. The Category 4 storm affected an estimated 330,000 people in Haiti, including 6,400 who were moved to temporary shelters. Extensive damage to main bridges and other transportation networks have left some areas cut off and vulnerable. Torrential rains have resulted in flooding and landslides. And contaminated water supplies threaten to lead to a surge in cholera cases and other waterborne...
