Martin new Rotary member

Kate Martin has joined the Westbrook-Gorham Rotary Club. A club announcement said Martin was originally from Berlin, N.H., and graduated from St. Joseph’s College in Standish with a degree in communications, public relations and advertising.

She recently moved to Gorham, where she joined Morgan Dental Care as the director of communications and marketing.

“She has had a remarkable career to date including executive director of the Berlin, N.H., Main Street program – a program which brought new business into a town that lost its largest employer,” the Rotary reported.

Martin also has managed a 192-unit property in North Carolina. She is married and mother of two daughters.

The Rotary meets 11:30 a.m.- 12:45 p.m. weekly on Tuesdays at the American Legion Post 197, 300 Conant St. (Route 25) in Westbrook.
