Wilsonville Rotarians elect 2014-15 officers

Weekly luncheons are open to the public at Al Kader Shrine Center


The Rotary Club of Wilsonville installed a new president and board Friday, June 13 at Charbonneau Country Club.

Taking the helm for 2014–15 is Mary Stewart, who co-owns MARStewart Creative Group with her husband, Mark. Handing the gavel over to her was John Holley, a retired resident of Charbonneau, who served as club president for the 2013–14 Rotary Year.

“John Holley led our club to an outstanding year,” Stewart said. “We increased our membership to 40 Rotarians, which is the most members we have had a long time.”

Holley will now serve a year as president of the Wilsonville Rotary Foundation, which oversees spending on service projects.

“I’m personally excited about the coming year that we will have under Mary’s leadership,” Holley said. “Her warm and welcoming presence will make her an excellent ambassador to the community as we continue our mission of ‘Service Above Self.’”

Rotarian of the Year went to Steve Perry, who led the club’s membership recruitment efforts and expansion of Chess for Success to all three primary schools. The Service Above Self award went to Jake McMichael for his efforts in taking over leadership of the Wilsonville Rotary Foundation after a vacancy arose.
