At Gateway Rotary, we have a great group of members who are from such diverse backgrounds and industries, and they all share a common trait—community. David Bader, a Gateway Rotarian since February 2018, is all about community. This Capital High School alumni is married, has a daughter and is definitely a part of this community. Prior to developing his craft in the financial and mortgage industry, he managed retail audio systems stores. He moved up north for a few years before returning to Thurston County, where he’s been a Country Financial agent for the past two years. He not only works and lives in the City of Lacey, but also supports worthy causes here. His involvement has ranged from supporting Homeless Backpacks and the Lacey Chamber Golf Tournament, to being one of the sponsors of the Lacey Police Department’s Cops & Cars event.
 
How did this awesome guy get involved with becoming Gateway Rotary Club member? Well, besides being a natural fit, fellow Rotarian Jim Mack invited him to join us one morning and the rest is history. Besides serving the community, Gateway Rotary appealed to him because he likes having fun, helping people with their needs and wanted to align with an organization that supports the needs of the Lacey community. We look forward to serving the community with you, David.
