Congratulations to our Catherine “Cat” Brame who was selected by Immed Past Pres Terry Zakanycz as the 2021-22 Rotarian of the Year. 🏆 Fairly new to Las Vegas, Cat met two of our members, Louise Faure and Julie Stemple, at a networking event and was invited to check out our Rotary Club. Cat was in awe of our close-knit group, fellowship, and the service programs we were involved with. She joined on 4/14/2021 and hasn’t looked back! Within a matter of months of joining she volunteered for the other half of the Cruise Director team, helping coordinate all our Service, Social & Fun activities. She stepped up as Fundraising Chair, organizing our Spring Swing Golf Tourney, which netted over $10,000 for a 9-hole tournament.⛳️ She “shows up” to nearly every service project and club meeting – always with a smile and “what do you need me to do?” attitude. The requirements to be considered our Rotarian of Year, besides serving at the Club level on a committee, showing up to serve, and attending District training and events, requires the Rotarian to support Rotary International’s Foundation. Cat made her first full commitment to the Paul Harris Society, earning her membership in that prestigious group. PP Terry believes in the difference one Rotarian can make in the world, like the Starfish story – and our Cat had a tremendous impact on so many Starfish, exemplifying Service Above Self for the Rotary Club With the Biggest Heart. 🫶 ...
