Somerset Speaks!

Join us for this brand new initiative of the Rotary Club of Somerset!  Somerset Speaks will shine a bright light on the people and places that make Somerset County a great place to call home or visit.  This is a periodic program that will air on this website and via a podcast.

Each episode will be underwritten by sponsors and the money raised through sponsorship will go to support non-profits who are serving the people of Somerset County.

On the eve of the opening of U.S. Route 219 between Somerset and Meyersdale we sit down for a very special interview with Mr. Henry Cook, CEO of Somerset Trust Company.  Mr. Cook has played an active role in advocating for Somerset County and was instrumental in getting this portion of 219 completed.  We hope that you enjoy this very special episode of Somerset Speaks.
