Elizabeth Crocker: June Rotarian of the Month and Newest Member

The Rotary Club of Castro Valley welcomed Elizabeth Crocker, a registered nurse and international health care executive from both the business and nonprofit sectors, recently moved to Castro Valley from England as its newest member and at the same meeting on June 7, she was recognized at the Rotary Club of Castro Valley’s Rotarian of the Month!

Club President Dwight Perry stated that in his 50-plus years as a Rotarian “Elizabeth fulfilled the requirements for her blue badge signifying becoming a full-fledged active member faster than anyone ever before embodying Rotary's ‘Service Above Self’ spirit of helping others locally, nationally and internationally.  A great example was her positive leadership in a critical volunteer slot in the Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade at the last minute by organizing and carrying out the judges and committee's duties on the day of the parade.”

Ceta Doctermann, the Club Membership Chair stated "We're really proud of Elizabeth and her commitment to the principles of Rotary International.  She stepped right up and became a full-fledged active member right from the git go -- with enthusiasm to spare!"

Elizabeth was no stranger to the Club as she had made a presentation by Zoom to the Club from London, England, titled "The Majesty of Horses."  Her presentation was in conjunction with Rowell Ranch Rodeo festivities.

Since joining the club, Elizabeth, a polio survivor, did an in-person presentation on the subject of Post-Polio Syndrome.  She is a polio survivor.  The presentation was in conjunction with the annual "Polio Plus" Rotary International campaign to eradicate polio from the world.
