Frank Adamson, District Governor of Rotary District 7090, installed Joanna Dahlbeck into membership in our Club.
Joanna Stebbins Dahlbeck grew up on a dairy farm in Sherman, New York.  After graduating from Sherman Central School with honors, she graduated from college in Pittsburgh where she studied Travel and Tourism.  From 1980-1996, Joanna worked as a travel agent for Sunburst Travel Service, Inc., which gave her, and husband Gordon, the chance to travel the world and experience many cultures.  In the fall of 1996, she joined Vacation Properties Real Estate as the Director of Owner and Guest Services.  There she managed over 300 vacation rental properties in Chautauqua Institution, the Chautauqua Lake area and Ellicottville, NY.
She continued to maintain her real estate license as a referral agent with Century 21 Turner Brokers. After 13 years full time in Real Estate, Joanna moved to a part-time position with the Chautauqua County Visitors Bureau where she had previously served as Internal Vice President of the Board of Directors. After a brief hiatus, Joanna was offered a position at the Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce as the Jamestown Area Chamber Coordinator and is currently celebrating almost three years in that position.  She also started a home-based network marketing business in June of 2019 that focuses on happiness, health and wellness.
She is a member of the Chautauqua Leadership Network, a volunteer with Hospice, the Chautauqua County Humane Society, and a member of the Church of the Living Spirit.
Joanna enjoys life on her boat, crafting mosaic and stained-glass art with her Pomeranian and husband Gordon by her side.
Her motto is, “Do more than necessary and keep on doing it”.
David Troxell congratulated Diana Meckley for her leadership of the Literacy Committee’s recent project. Our Club, in partnership with the AM Rotary Club and Moonlight Electric, each donated $300 for the purchase of one book for each of 350 children at Love School. Each child had a book picked especially for them by a member of the teaching staff at the school, considering the child’s interests and reading level.
The committee all got together and placed Rotary donation bookplates in the front of the books and then they were given to the children, some of whom had never owned their own book before.
The literacy committee then decided to prepare something for our older population and taped an episode of the OUR MISS BROOKS radio show to be transmitted for the residents of Heritage Ministries. This too was enjoyed by the committee and hopefully the membership will get to enjoy it as well.
Ruth Lundin announced that the Environment has been added as a 7th Avenue of Service for Rotary. The Great Lakes Cleanup has been planned for April 19-24, which will be followed up in May with the Conewango Virtual cleanup (you cleanup what you want, when you want and submit photos or video).
DG Frank showed a short commercial for the Great Lakes Cleanup prepared by PDG Kevin Crosby.
