Anne Rosenberg’s community involvement springs from her parents who taught her: ‘Where you live is only as good as the time and energy you are willing to invest’! Born in England, she moved to the United States in 1960, eventually moving to Atlantic City in 1970 where her community involvement began.
She has volunteered in several organizations and, after advancing her education, she became Director of the Atlantic Human Resources Foster Grandparent Program for senior citizens. She has served on the Atlantic City Board of Education and, now retired, has increased her time in volunteer positions where her main focus is the young generation.
