Local real estate broker Dana Wellington has been named the Alamo Rotary Club's 2015-16 Rotarian of the Year.
An Alamo Rotary member since 2013 and currently its membership director, Wellington also participates in local real estate groups, is active with the Wheelchair Foundation and serves on the Danville Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
"Since becoming a member, Dana has worked tirelessly on the Alamo Rotary Club projects and can be counted on to participate enthusiastically in fellowship as in fundraising or community projects which the club sponsors," Alamo Rotary president Kim Smith said in a statement earlier this month.
Each year, the sitting president of the 50-member service organization selects one club member to receive the Rotarian of the Year distinction, which is presented during the club's annual holiday party in December.
"Dana is truly a Rotarian who lives the principles of Rotary's Four Way Test," Smith said of Wellington. "First: Is it the truth? Second: Is it fair to all concerned? Third: Will it build good will and better friendships? And, fourth: Will it be beneficial to all concerned? Above all, she places 'service above self,' which is Rotary's motto."
A second-generation real estate broker and general contractor, Wellington is a past president of the Contra Costa County Women's Council of Realtors, a member of the Contra Costa County Association of Realtors Diversity Committee and a member of the Leadership Contra Costa Alumni Association.
The Rotary Club of Alamo, which will celebrate its 45th anniversary this May, meets Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. at Round Hill Country Club, 3169 Roundhill Road in Alamo.
