The Rotary Club of Three Creeks is thrilled with the applications for membership from Lyle and Diana Smith.
The Smiths were long-time members of the Rotary Club of Vancouver Metro Sunset before the club disbanded after the 2021-22 Rotary year. They've visited our club several times and have decided to re-join Rotary as members of the Three Creeks club.
While in the Sunset club, Diana served as club president twice, and as sergeant at arms another year. She also had been a member of the Rotary Club of Vancouver prior to the charter of the Sunrise club. Diana has a bachelor's degree in business, and an MBA. She has owned and operated an accounting and tax business for 15 years. Her hobbies include hiking, watercolor painting and knitting.
Lyle, Diana's husband, also was a member of the Rotary Club of Vancouver Metro Sunset. He's the key person behind an AIDS fundraiser called "Lyle's Myles", a 5K fundraiser that's been held for 26 years. He's a 1999 retiree from AT&T-Lucent. His hobbies include golf and sailing. Lyle holds bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics and a PhD in computer science.
President Kinsey is expected to do first reading of the Smiths' proposed memberships at our November 16 meeting, and their second reading will be at the club's December 7 meeting, followed by a membership vote by the club's board of directors.
President Elect Ryan Hart has completed a slate of proposed board of directors for the 2024-25 Rotary year. In accordance with the club's bylaws, PE Ryan has already conducted the first reading of this proposed slate of board directors, and will conduct the second reading and vote of the membership at our November 16 club meeting.
Other nominations from the floor, should there be any, will be accepted during the November 16 meeting prior to the vote.
