Welcome to the Rotary Club of Alamo!

Feel free to drop in any Wednesday, and you will be greeted by a club member! The first lunch is on us.

Rotary Club of Alamo Welcomes New Member

At Wednesday’s meeting, Dana Wellington, Club Membership Chair, had the pleasure to introduce the Rotary Club of Alamo’s newest member, Margy Lyman and her husband, Dan.

Dana said “that today we are looking forward to having you join our Rotary Club and you’ll find hat our Club can be a cheering section when things are going well, and a support system when they’re not. We encourage families to participate in our Clubs activities and projects. We also encourage Dan to participate and attend our lunches and social events.”

Margy was born in Boston and is a real estate agent. She sailed and skied from nine-years old and attend college skiing competitively until she fell one too many times. Thereupon, Margy transferred to Boston University, graduating with a degree in English Literature. She worked in Massachusetts and then in San Francisco working in public relations focusing on land use. Margy co-founded the San Ramon Valley Legislative Committee to garner more funding for our schools on a state level. This position in now a mandated executive chair in almost all California public schools.

She is now a realtor and married to Dan, who is a contractor. They have two sons who both played pro ball for ten years. They have two grandsons and a granddaughter. Also, her nephew was a beneficiary of a Rotary Scholarship at Brown University.

Dana presented Margy with key Rotary documents including the Rotary Four Way Test, the Object of Rotary and her temporary Red Badge. Margy was asked to pin a sponsor pin on Beth Randall since her sponsor Jan Robinson is traveling. Beth then pinned the Rotary pin on Margy.

Each new member is asked to complete at least seven of nine activities in order to receive their blue badges. These include:
1. Review the Rotary International website and District 5160 website. Visit the Rotary Club of Alamo’s website and “LIKE” the Club’s Facebook page.
2. Meet with the Club’s Foundation Chair to learn about the Rotary Foundation and the Paul Harris programs.
