Service organization celebrating 40 years of supporting the local community
The Park City Rotary Club has named Corrie Forsling as its president for 2020-21. Forsling began her term July 1 leading the 100-person Rotary Club, one of three in Park City.
A native of New Hampshire, Forsling has been a Park City resident since 1999. She has long been active in the community, currently serving as the board treasurer for People’s Health Clinic. She’s worked with the Park City Education Foundation’s finance committee, and contributed volunteer work in local elementary schools. Forsling currently serves as Summit County Treasurer, an elected position she has held since 2011. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from New York’s Ithaca College and has a Master of Business Administration from Penn State. In her spare time she is the keyboard player for The Electric Moose Band. 
“Our Park City Rotary Club embodies the new Rotary International theme that ‘Rotary Opens Opportunities,’ she said. “To me, that means finding opportunities to both serve others in the community and to use Rotary to make new friends and professional connections.”
Since its formation in 1980, the Park City Rotary Club has been a stalwart in community service. In its 40 years it has raised well over $1 million to support local causes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it organized highly successful drives for food, hygiene and cleaning supplies. It also initiated a club fund drive that, through various donation matches, contributed over $90,000 to the Park City Community Foundation’s Community Response Fund.
Forsling succeeds Colin DeFord, who re-energized the club with new programs over the last year. Despite the inability to meet weekly for lunch as a club, DeFord engineered weekly online club meetings that drew large participation and notable national and local speakers each week. Through the pandemic, the club remained very active in its service efforts in the community.
