Wendy Bukoski and Craig Riley have been introduced as the most recent proposed members of the Rotary Club of Three Creeks.
President Daniel Spanski-Dreffin conducted the first reading of both proposed members at the club's July 1 meeting via Zoom.
Bukoski was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, and has lived all over the West Coast. She considers Honolulu, San Diego, and Portland my hometowns. Bukoski lives in Felida with her husband, two children, two dogs, and a handicapped kitten nugget. She managed operations at FISH of Vancouver for four years and currently works for Friends of the Children - SW Washington in development. She helped launch the Friends' new chapter during the pandemic and has a healthy respect for how much goes into building something new from the ground up!
In her spare time, she enjoys riding bikes, mushroom hunting and foraging, kayaking, and sledding with her family. She is an enthusiastic, yet "vertically challenged" snowboarder and former kickboxing instructor.
Riley is a former member of the Rotary Club of Vancouver, having made the decision that the Three Creeks club was a better fit for him.
He is managing partner of Medicare Help Now. Having grown up in Southern California, Riley moved to Portland in 1969 to attend Lewis & Clark College. He never left the Pacific Northwest. Riley and his wife Karen have four children and nine grandchildren.
In his spare time, Riley enjoys swimming, pickleball, kayaking and travel.
Bukoski's sponsor is Carol Mackey, while Riley's is Susanne Holmberg.
Second reading for both proposed members will occur at the club's July 15 meeting, to be followed closely by an electronic vote by the board. If you have any feedback to share in regard to either proposed member, please contact a member of the board in writing.
