News of Boise Southwest Rotary
A big Rotary welcome to our newest member--Lynne Hood!
Lynne joined our club this month and was sponsored by Rotarian Sarah Wolverton. She grew up in Louisville, Kentucky where she attended the University of Louisville and later the University of Seattle to further her interest in the environment. She began working for the EPA in Seattle where she was involved with proposal reviews for environmental impacts and educating the public about the public process, and eventually met her husband Chad who worked for the US Forest Service. In 2013, they married and moved to Boise where they could enjoy Idaho's recreational opportunities and the smaller city of Boise!
 
Lynne is looking forward to volunteer opportunities as a way to give back and create a sense of community, and we're fortunate to have her become Boise Southwest's newest member--be sure to say hello and introduce yourself to Lynne at the next meeting!
 
We're pleased to have Bonnie Helms join Boise Southwest in August. She's a former Rotarian from the Rotary Club of Downtown Las Vegas which she originally joined in 2013, and served on the Board and as Youth Services Chair for her club. Bonnie's husband and best friend, Alan, is also a  former Rotarian and they have two grown children, Kyle and Barbara.
 
Bonnie is a graduate of the University of Arizona and after working 19 years in the natural gas industry, she has spent 9 years in the title and escrow business. She's now the Business Development Officer for Stewart Title located on Eagle Road in Meridian.
 
Her free time is spent creating great memories with family and friends as well as hiking, fishing, cooking, reading and Service above Self! Be sure to introduce yourself to Bonnie at our next meeting!
Looking back on the 2016-17 Rotary year, members of Boise Southwest has once again demonstrated great generosity of time, talent, and treasure. The impact that we have had on our community this year is truly inspiring.  Through various giving efforts (detailed below), our members gave $66,388 in the 2016-17 Rotary year and volunteered many hours to our projects.
