District 5020 Governor Greg Horn
Rotary District 5020 Matters

This meeting will be conducted on Zoom video. Please contact the Club via email >info@ejcrotary.club< for the link. 

   Greg Horn is the District Governor of Rotary District 5020, which is one of the largest Rotary Districts in the world, encompassing 91 Rotary Clubs stretching from Vancouver Island, British Columbia south along the west side of the Puget Sopund over the Olympic Peninsula as far south as Woodland WA.  

Three things have shaped Greg Horn’s life more than any other: water, family and Rotary. Raised living on a lake in Lakewood, WA, he became an accomplished competitive water skier and barefooter. This led him into the water ski manufacturing business during college at the University of Washington. After college and a stint in the Navy, the job grew into a self employment opportunity as an independent manufacturer’s representative.  That led him into the tournament ski boat business, a wakeboard manufacturing business and finally a dock building business. He also raced tunnel boats for several years way back in the 70's where he set a world speed record that still stands. Along the way he joined with some friends and built a water ski lake, one of the finest in the country. 

After joining Lakewood Rotary in 1996 he became active in just about every aspect of the club. 2009-2010 brought a year of being club president, and then three years as assistant governor followed. Greg and Mary were co-chairs of 2018 Rotary District 5020 Conference and Training in Tacoma. Mary is now Greg’s Chief of Staff. 

Greg’s four Rotary passions are polio eradication, public image, membership growth, and The Rotary Foundation. 

A final thought: Do you wish Rotary were not such a well-kept secret? Do you wish everyone in the community knew about all the life-changing things we do? Why not invite friends and family to join you online for a meeting and hopefully in person someday soon. It’s a great low key way to expose Rotary to others and let them see first hand the power of Rotary. Together we can open opportunities and grow Rotary!
