In another nod to the special - and unique - culture of the Rotary Club of Three Creeks Vancouver, Susanne and Nelson Holmberg were named District 5100 Rotarians of the Year on Saturday, May 18 at the District Conference in Bend, Ore.
As stated by District Awards Committee Chair Jeff Lines, "the award for 'Rotarian of the Year' was presented to Nelson and Susanne Holmberg of the Rotary Club of Three Creeks Vancouver. Their club is in its third year and has already grown by more than 10 new members so far. Susanne was the initial president and it was her third round as a club president. Nelson followed her in assuming the president role, serving this year.
"We are both very honored," Nelson said. "While the plaque has our names on it, it's really an award for the whole club. We may be the co-founders, but all of the club's success has been a team effort by the members of the club. We are both very proud of this club, and love being a part of it."
Azar Ghiasvand, who has visited our club several times, is the latest to apply for membership in the Rotary Club of Three Creeks.
She is associate vice president and branch manager for the Salmon Creek Banner Bank. Azar has been in management for over 42 years and in banking over 32 years.
Her sponsors are Lisa Abrahamsson and Jim Selby. Lisa says she's very excited to be joining our club, as her experiences with the club so far have been a lot of fun. We conducted first reading of her proposed membership on May 16, and will conduct the second reading at our strategic social on May 30 at Dan Sockle's house. Her induction - pending board vote - will be set for June 6 at Creed Coffee Co.
