GET TO KNOW YOUR ASSISTANT GOVERNOR – WENDY TOWNSEND

NAME: Wendy Townsend
HOME CLUB: Oak Bay
AG AREA / CLUB NAMES: Area 6 | Oak Bay, Saanich, Westshore, Victoria, Sooke, Victoria Rotaract

YEAR JOINED ROTARY: 2012

  1. Why did you join Rotary? What did you expect from your Rotary membership?

I was asked to join by a friend who had been a member for many years. It finally worked into my work/life schedule so I applied for membership. I was wanted to participate in fundraisers for projects both locally and internationally, be involved in community services and meet new people. 

  1. Has Rotary lived up to your expectations – how?

Everything I expected came to fruition. Our club is involved in successful fundraising activities, contributes to worthwhile projects both locally an internationally, and I’ve met some really interesting, genuine people. 

  1. We know Rotary is a big part of your life, but what do you like to do for fun? Hobbies?

Travel. I have a long list of place I’d like to visit and it’s been fun for me to plan different trips. I’m also a new grandparent and that’s always fun.

  1. What inspired you to become involved at the club level? Then at the district level?

I was talked into being Secretary in my second year of Rotary. I enjoyed being a part of the Board and it gave me a larger view of the club. Since that first assignment I have been on the Board as President, Community Services Director in addition to 3 years as Secretary. The AG assignment is my first at the district level. I look forward to meeting Rotarians from different clubs and providing service on a broader scale. 

  1. Best experience so far as Assistant Governor?

Being welcomed so warmly by the Area Club Presidents.

  1. When will we see you as the District Governor?

This is not likely to happen in my future.
