2019 02_14  Three New Members
Wow! Three New Members
The membership committee has been busy.  Today, led by past president Art Deardorff, we inducted three new members.  We welcome them all. 
Collen Knight comes to us from the Rotary Club of Cordelia with classification Community Relations and was sponsored by Darrell Scott.  She joined Rotary in 2004 with Rotary Club of Fairfield Suisun and was President of Rotary Club of Cordelia during the 2011-2012 year when they were awarded outstanding club in District 5160.  Colleen diligently looked at two local clubs before choosing us; we are so lucky. Colleen was accompanied by her guest Candy Pierce, a member of Cordelia Rotary and past District Governor in District 5160. 
Larry Whitaker returns to our club, being a past President 2006-2007 and active from from 2003-2011.  He was sponsored by Richard Pearl and has the classification Communications.   He originally joined Rotary in 1993 at Rotary Club of Cameron Park. Larry has been an Assistant Governor in District 5180 and was the original developer of the Club and District websites.  He also recently developed the City of Lincoln website and developed and maintains several website for Sun City Lincoln Hills. Larry was accompanied by his wife Nancy Whitaker who has a passion for raising horses.
Anglin Baker is Director of The Foundry youth center, originally called The Axiom that our club helped get started in 2014. Anglin was sponsored by Art Deardorff.  Anglin has served in the ministry for over 10 years and has a soft spot for young people and their development.  Anglin was accompanied by his wife Trista and by one of his young leaders from The Foundry Jose Castilllo.  As one of the youngest members in our club, Anglin has the classification Youth Center Director.  
Art stressed to all new members that it would be through their own actions that they would become true Rotarians (although Colleen and Larry have demonstrated this in the past). They were encouraged to continually learn all they can about Rotary as it exists today, and to strengthen their own leadership and communication skills by actively participating in the activities of the club, including attending our meetings, social events, and service projects.  Through these activities, they will encounter the network of business and professional leaders that have been attracted to our club. And, through the new friendships so developed, our existing club members will commit ourselves to making our new members feel welcome in our club.
Note from Darrell, Membership Chair and President-Elect for Rotary year 2019-2020, to all members:  Keep up the good work in bringing prospective new members to our club.  Like the newly inducted members above, they will be the lifeblood of our club in the future. Attracting and welcoming delightful new members into our Rotary Club is very important both to them and to our Club.  These new members come with great enthusiasm, new ideas, new skills and wonderful opportunities for new friendships.
