Rotary Club of Southlake

Posted by Lisa McBee on Jun 28, 2019
Two of our new Rotarians presented their Classification talks on June 28th. “Classification” is basically Rotary terminology for your occupation. But in addition to telling us about their careers, members are also encouraged to share with the club a profile of their family, hobbies, highlights from their life history and anything else that helps us find out more about the person they are today.  Today we had the pleasure of hearing from new Rotarians, Lindsay Hubbell and Marjorie Herrera Lewis.
 
Lindsay Hubbell, a Southlake Rotary member since 4/23/19, and an attorney at the Law Office of Dana L. White, PLLC, was brought up in a small town in Texas.  She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations at the University of Texas; and subsequently moved to Fort Worth to attend Texas Wesleyan University for her JD program.  Lindsay applies her experiences as an attorney and a community volunteer to design and execute strategies to meet the community building, fundraising and communication goals of the Fort Worth Country Day Alumni Association. Lindsay is a member of the Junior League of Fort Worth, formerly serving on the Steering Committee for Christmas in Cowtown.  Lindsay also previously served as a Director on the Board of Texas Center for Arts and Academics; Board Member at Texas Center for Arts and Academics; Chair of the Resource Development Committee at Texas Center for Arts and Academics; Coordinator and Manager of Junior League volunteers for Fort Worth Teen Court; and Member of the Christmas in Cowtown Steering Committee.  The Southlake Rotary Club is grateful to have Lindsay as a member, as she epitomizes ‘service over self.’
 
Marjorie Herrera Lewis, a Southlake Rotary member since 10/12/18, is an accomplished sportswriter and novelist, and recently published her historical novel When the Men Were Gone, set in WWII and chronicling the first female football coach in the state of Texas, Tylene Wilson! Based on a true story, When the Men Were Gone is a powerful and vibrant novel of perseverance and personal courage under severe oppression. Marjorie generously donated every cent of her per-book royalties (about $1/book) for books sold between January 14-20 to the Rotary Literacy Program, raising $500 for the Rotary Literacy Program. A BIG THANK YOU to Marjorie for her generosity AND for her wonderful book.  You can order the book online here: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/when-the-men-w…/1127273390… #wearerotary.  Marjorie exemplifies the values of Rotary, including service above self, fellowship, leadership, and the passion for diversity and understanding. She has shared her gift of writing, her thinking, her time, and her awesome talent to our club and in support of our community and world. Marjorie also exemplifies a Member who selflessly DOES for the Club with no intent for accolades or recognition. The Southlake Rotary Club is thankful to have Marjorie as a member, as she also, epitomizes ‘service over self.’
 
Following the classification speeches, the Southlake Rotary Club commenced the ceremonial “Passing of the Gavel,” signaling the transfer of the Club presidency as of July 1st. The presidential gavel was passed from 2018-2019 President, Arlin Gold-Stegmair, to the President Elect, Dana White, who will preside over the 2019-2020 year with the theme of “Rotary Connects the World.”  
 
Outgoing president Arlin Gold-Stegmair, Business Development Officer at Providence Bank, handed over the gavel to Dana White, owner/managing attorney at the Law Office of Dana L. White, PLLC. “It has been an honor to serve,” Arlin said, “and if you have the opportunity to serve Rotary as President, I highly recommend it to each of you.”  Dana stated, “As incoming President, I would like to thank and congratulate outgoing President Arlin Gold-Stegmair for her inspirational leadership this past Rotary year.”  Dana then presented Arlin with an appreciation Award for her wonderful service to our Club,  Dana stated, “Thank you, Arlin, for all the great work you accomplished on behalf of our Club this year!"
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sue Brown was also recognized for her awesome service as our Club’s Treasurer for the last three years!  Southlake Rotarian Phyllis Catton presented beautiful flowers to both Sue Brown, for her selfless service as our Club’s treasurer and Arlin Gold-Stegmair, for her wonderful tenure as our Club’s President.   The event was extraordinary and the camaraderie priceless.
 
 
 
 
Dana White has previously served the Club as Secretary. The other members of the Board for the 2019-2020, (with more to be announced at a later date) are as follows: Sue Brown (Secretary), Dan Phillips (Treasurer), Arlin Gold-Stegmair (Sergeant-at-Arms & Immediate Past President).
