New Members
  We are on a Roll!
In the three months since June, seven new members have joined our club.  
Jan Hutchinson (shown at the left with her sponsor Darrell Scott) transferred in from the Novato Sunrise Club after living in Lincoln Hills for the last year. She had 16 years of Rotary service with the Novato Sunrise club, and was an educator for 52 years.  
Annamaria Dugan is a new Rotary member (shown at the right between Mary Ann and Colleen) is in accounting and is working to become a CPA. She is also sponsored by our club for the Lincoln Leadership program.  She and her spouse, Terry, have been together for 20 years and live out 193 on the border of Lincoln and Newcastle with their three dogs and three cats. 
Natilou (Nat) Benipayo (left next to Art) is the owner of Travel2Unwind Dream Vacations and has been married to her husband, Rod, for 38 years, having two daughters and five grandchildren. She was an Air Force wife and a banker for over 30 years, including 21 years in Germany. She and her husband moved to Lincoln in 2015 and are both active in their travel business. 
Jerry Harner (right picture in blue) is our City Treasurer and has been a Rotarian in several clubs starting in 1993.   Most recently he was with the District 5180 Passport Club. He has been active in many Rotary projects in Haiti. 
Mary Brock (circled, left) and Barbara DeBaptiste (circled, right) were inducted at the same meeting.
  • Barbara is a seasoned Rotarian tranferring from the Rotary Club of Westtown Goshen (Pennsylvania) with a long list of Rotary leadership accomplishments.  She was accompanied by her daughter Lela, both having moved recently to Lincoln. 
  • Mary is a realtor with Frey and Associates.  She and her husband Paul have four children.  Mary was looking for a place to serve with her kids. 
Norm Lane (shown in the right picture between Clark and Caron), is set to retire soon after having worked for the FBI as an investigator for 24 years, and then as an insurance investigator for 27 more years. Norm has been married to his wife, Sandra, for 50 years and they have two sons and five grandchildren. 
With this rapid increase, our club now has 56 members.   This takes into account that long-time member Chris Clark resigned to move to Southern California to be closer to family.
