Two new members were inducted at our club meeting on January 6. The memberships of Louise Hoover and Charla Burke have both been approved by the board of directors, and it's time to celebrate the addition of two new members.
Charla has visited our club three times at Round Table, and is very interested in our service culture and seems to enjoy the club meetings too. She chose our club due to our proven track record of making a difference in the community. By day, she is a project manager for Bonneville Power Administration and she holds bachelor’s degrees in electrical engineering and mathematics. Her interests include biking, soccer, book club and hiking.
Louise, too, has visited us several times, and her transfer from the club in Hoquiam has been approved by the board of directors. She is a retired Clark College administrator and faculty member. Louise ran the math department for about 10 years, and was division chair for math and computer science for three or four. Widowed in 2010, Louise has three children and six grandchildren from her first marriage and two stepchildren and two grandchildren from second. Her hobbies include acting, singing and she was her church cantor in Grayland, clothing design and construction, and reading (mostly mysteries).
