When did you become a Rotarian and why did you join?
 
I joined the Concord, NH, Rotary Club in Feb. 1974.  My dad had been a Rotarian in our hometown of Bloomington/Normal, Illinois, so Rotary was in my culture.  I had recently started my company in NH and knew that the contacts and acquaintanceships made through Rotary would be beneficial. It was also a good opportunity to actively become a part of our newly adopted community. 
 
Tell us a little about yourself and your background in the community.
 
Kathy and I permanently relocated to Carbondale, CO, in August, 2015 after living in NH for 42 years.  Our son, Lee, and his family live in Glenwood Springs, and we had a vacation condo there from 2005-2014.  We love the climate, lifestyle, and skiing & biking this area has to offer. 
 
What is something most people do not know about you?
 
  1. I can fix/repair/remodel almost anything around a house.  I have installed over 20 windows of various types in properties I have owned.
  2. I once spoke Vietnamese fluently.
  3. I am addicted to Sudoku puzzles.
 
What do you do in your spare time?  Interests and/or hobbies.
 
Doing the stuff in #1 above, which most people don’t know about me!  Snowboarding, skiing, biking, tennis, and of course, Sudoku. 
 
What do you enjoy most about Rotary?  Share a good Rotary memory or moment.
 
The camaraderie with other Rotarians, visiting other Clubs when traveling.
 
As incoming President of the Concord Rotary Club, Kathy and I were sent to the Rotary International Convention.  Excited by the prospect of going to some exotic, foreign city, we were rewarded to go to the 1983 Convention in Kansas City, MO!  Hardly exotic, but a very enlightening and valuable experience.  One morning we went through the breakfast line at our hotel and looked around to join other Rotarians at their table.  A well-dressed black couple, which we assumed was from some African nation, was sitting alone, so we asked if we could sit with them.  Turned out they were from across the river in Kansas and were just staying at this hotel on their honeymoon.  I’m sure they were glad to get rid of us!
