Kathy Martin Lauded by the Rotary Club of Mazatlan Mexico

The Rotary Club of Mazatlan Mexico has a Jaws of Life, thanks to the hard work and vision of member Kathy Martin (Club President 2001-2002).

The latest installment of these efforts was the delivery of the ‘Jaws of Life’ along with other necessary emergency and life saving tools to the Rotary Club of Mexico for the use of the Mexican Red Cross and local Mazatlan Fire Department.

Kathy had been searching for a hardly used or new ‘Jaws of Life’ for four years and with the support and cooperation of Tacoma #8’s World Community Service Committee, $4,000 was allocated for this project. Due to matching grants from the Rotary Foundation and financial support from friends and contacts in Mexico, that original $4,000 turned into $25,000 and a brand new ‘Jaws of Life’ was purchased along with the additional emergency items that accompany the ‘Jaws of Life’
in an emergency situation.

This is just another in a series of efforts that has seen medical equipment and emergency vehicles – fire truck and ambulance – go to Mazatlan as part of our World Community Service grants and Kathy Martin’s efforts at securing this type of equipment. It began in 1987 before Kathy joined Tacoma #8
in 1989, and the variety of equipment which has been delivered to Mazatlan includes x-ray equipment, a mammography machine, training of doctors in Mazatlan on artificial knee and hip replacement surgeries, etc.

Much of the credit goes directly to Kathy for her desire to improve the health of the citizens of Mazatlan in cooperation with the Mazatlan Rotary Club and General Hospital. It shows the power of what one Rotarian can accomplish and what Tacoma #8’s World Community Service Committee can do with
its funding of projects throughout the world, and the international aspect of Rotary.

The Martin Firm Wins Davey Award

The Martin Firm, of University Place, has been named a winner in the Davey Awards competition, sponsored by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), for their video production work on behalf of Wilcox Farms. Their television commercial, recognizing the Northwest egg producer for their century of farming and business operations, garnered a silver award in the international competition.

“This award is especially meaningful to receive on behalf of Wilcox Farms, as the project was developed and created to mark a significant milestone in their company’s history,” says Kathy Martin, president of The Martin Firm. “While we are a smaller firm, our team thinks big – and delivers big.”
