Mary joined Exchange in the 1988/1989 year and attended her first District Mid-Year Conference in Pasco Washingtion and the District Convention in Coeur d’Alene in 1990. Mary has attended every District Conference and Convention until 2001 and has attended 8 National Conventions. Despite relocating in 2000 to Renton, Washington Mary continued her membership with the Tri-Cities Club for a time, which did not work because of location and commuting issues and later joined the Highline Club. Mary has held every position at the Club level and has been District Secretary from 1990 to 2000.
I started my career in the banking industry in 1976. In 1995, I left banking to take a position with WSU Tri-Cities Campus. When my husband was transferred to the Seattle area, I worked for the City of Redmond and moved on to Costco Wholesale Corporate Office, working in the accounting and payroll departments. I retired from Costco in 2015 and we moved back to the Tri-Cities, where I once again became involved with the Exchange Club.
I have a son, a daughter and three grandchildren that keep me active and busy. My husband of 47 years passed away in January of this year.
I am looking forward to an active and fun year with Exchange and being back with my friends.
