Lacking a Membership Committee interviewer, our intrepid President took the mike in hand and conducted the Member Spotlight himself this week.  And his surprise choice for the limelight was Past President Marilyn Hoppen. 
Midday Rotarians know Marilyn well from her long years of Service with our Club.  But few probably know that she first joined Rotary because her Midday Rotarian husband Mark changed jobs, and therefore changed Clubs.  Marilyn didn't want to lose her long-standing connection to Midday so she joined our club herself, forming a Two-Rotarian Family.  And we have been the beneficiaries ever since.
Marilyn is a long-time Gig Harbor resident, and husband Mark grew up in the little brick house next the Gig Harbor Boatshop, so it's hard to imagine a couple more closely tied to our beautiful little city.  She holds down the Senior VP post of HR Director with Kitsap Bank, one of the oldest banks in our area and one of the few Woman Owned banks as well.  She was a most gracious surprise interviewee, and is certainly a most valuable member of Midday Rotary!  Thanks for sharing with us, Marilyn.
