With the service project that was held in lieu of our regular second club meeting of the month last night, President Nelson has chosen to conduct the written posting and second reading of proposed new members Charla Burke and Glenn Healey as of this post in order to keep the new member process moving forward.
A resident of Salmon Creek, Charla Burke has visited the club three times since October and submitted her application in November. Her first reading was conducted at the club meeting on December 2.
Charla is interested in Rotary for its service above self spirit, and our club in particular due to the proven track record of making a difference in our community. 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.
Like Charla, Glenn is impressed with Rotary's service to communities and chose our club on invitation from PE Andi Costello. He is a veteran of the United States military, who now works as a financial professional with New York Life. He has lived in the PNW since 2015, and he has two year old son and 22 month old daughter. Glenn's interests include hiking, skiing, cycling, etc. -- the PNW lifestyle, "along with being a history geek".
As is our custom, if there is any feedback from members about either of these proposed members, please contact a board member in writing by no later than noon Monday, Dec. 20. The club board will vote on both proposed members via email beginning on Monday evening.
