Club Organization

Dedicating itself to Service Above Self, the Rotary Club of Murrieta manages its varied programs through a leadership plan that maintains the traditional “avenues of service,” but puts new emphasis on public relations and membership growth.

President John Brown chairs an active Board of Directors and provides overall leadership to the organization.

Rob Haskins, President-Elect, directs the Field of Honor sponsorship, and is co-chair of the Field of Honor.  The immediate past president, Steve Nicholson, sits on the board for the purpose of continuity.

Patsy Orr is the Secretary; LouEllen Ficke is the Treasurer.

  • The President Nominee is Liz Jones
  • Community service is directed by Jody Lawlor
  • International service is directed by Jan Lunday
  • Youth Service is directed by Liz Jones and Paul Distefano
  • Vocational Services is directed by Jim Yanochik

Director of Administration, Dawn Layton, oversees many of the club services, like meetings management, programs, member fellowship and the myriad other things that make a club go.

The Director of Membership, Frank Donahoe, leads the club’s efforts to recruit, activate and retain the club’s most valuable asset — you, the Rotarian.

To share the news of all we do with both the members and the world around us, the club’s director of public relations, Linda Dozier, handles communication activities, including member communication, the web site and media relations.

The club’s reach extends well beyond Murrieta’s boundaries, and that results in large measure from involvement with Rotary International’s Foundation.  The club’s own Foundation Director, Saomorn Pang, encourages membership giving to the international foundation as well as to Murrieta’s own Permanent Fund, an endowment the club is building to exist in perpetuity, with interest earnings being used to support annual club programs.
