Charlene has been a member of the Rotary Club of Fall River, Ma., since 1991, with perfect attendance for 27 years. She has served as President twice, the third member in the 100 year history of the club to do so. She was also the second woman to serve as President. She has served as Director, and has been Chair, or member, of most every committee. She served for ten years as Chair of the Rotary Club of Fall River Charitable Foundation Trust and is the current Treasurer. Her Rotary Club has recognized her twice with a Paul Harris Fellow, with progress toward her fourth. Charlene is a graduate of the Rotary Leadership Institute and is working on graduate courses. From 2016-2019, she served as an Assistant Governor in District 7950.

Charlene is very honored to be selected to serve as District Governor in 2020/2021. Particularly so as this term will coincide with the Centennial of her home club – the Rotary Club of Fall River, Ma.!

Charlene and her husband, Jake, have been married and having fun for 50 years! They are the parents of two exceptional daughters - Jessalyn and K.C. They enjoy traveling and their (soon to be!) four grandchildren!
Russ introduced  DG Jarest and thanked both the DG and ADG Sauer for the visit and moderating the meeting.
