Becky Calderone and Linda Alt Provide Vocational Talks to Club
In the absence of a program on Tuesday, November 30th, Becky Calderone and Linda Alt provided vocational talks to the membership.

Becky was born in California. lived in Cheyenne, WY and Winnemucca, NV before settling in Bonners Ferry. She is a graduate of Bonners Ferry High School and spent a year at North Idaho College. Her working experience includes 10 years at the Kootenai River Inn and 8 years in the title industry, 5 of those at Boundary Abstract. Becky stated that Ron was instrumental in clarifying her questions about Rotary and this eventually led to her joining the club in early 2010. She has already chaired the Yard Sale for 2010 and will again in 2011. She described her passion for horses, owning three at the moment. She has participated in barrel racing over the past 6-10 years and is a member of the Barrel Racing Association.

Linda was born and raised in Bonners Ferry and attended the University of Idaho for 2 years. She has had extensive experience in many vocations and places of business in the community. She held most positions at First Security Bank (forerunner of Wells Fargo) for 8 years and then decided to be a stay at home mom to her 3 boys. She now has 4 grandchildren. As her children got older, she worked part-time for the Department of Lands and then spent 10 years as a volunteer and employee of the Bonners Ferry School District. For the past 18 1/2 years, Linda has worked at the court house in various capacities, currently heading up the office of motor vehicles. Her many community activities have included 4-H leader, the high school Booster Club, and Beta Sigma Phi. Because her husband is from Germany, she has traveled to that country many times. She has been actively involved in the Better Boundary County Coalition and this year she facilitated the transition of the Coalition to the Rotary Club of Bonners Ferry and coordinated the CommUNITY Breakfast. It was primarily through the encouragement of Greg Johnson and her willingness to serve others that brought her into the Rotary family.

Thank you Becky and Linda for those great presentations!
