Rotarian of the Month – December 2018
December 2018 Rotarian of the Month:
Elizabeth Evans of the Rotary Club of Redwood City
Elizabeth Evans joined the Rotary Club of Redwood City in July of 2018. She has lived in Redwood City for three years and decided she wanted to give back to her community. Elizabeth is the Chief of Operations at the San Mateo Superior Court. She has a B.A. in English Literature and a Master’s in Public Administration. Even before joining the club, she participated during breakout sessions with the Community Services committee, providing input and showing strong support for a few projects.
The Rotary Club of Redwood City believes in providing opportunities for new members to play an active role in the club. Elizabeth was asked to co-chair a fundraiser for Jasper Ridge Farms. In her role, she was tasked with identifying a caterer and selecting a vendor for tables and chairs. Elizabeth also provided valuable feedback for the promotional flyer as well as suggested places to promote the event. She championed the project at club meetings and helped to organize the volunteers. On the day of the event she was one of the first people to arrive and one of the last to leave. Throughout the day she kept everything running smoothly and exhibited characteristics of and ideal Rotarian.
With the completion of the Jasper Ridge Farm fundraiser, Elizabeth has taken on a new role—she is working with the Rotary Club of San Carlos to plan a joint event with the Rotary Club of Redwood City. Elizabeth exemplifies the concept of Service above Self. She is the type of new recruit that breathes fresh life into the club. We look forward to all the amazing things she will do as part of the Rotary Club of Redwood City.
