At our August 14 meeting, we welcomed two new members to our club: Allison Montney, an Accountant for the Illinois State Treasurer's Office, and Jason Huddleston, a pay and audit specialist for the Illinois Department of Human Services. Membership Chair Harry Mitchell began their introduction to our club before the meeting started (image above).
With assistance from President Travis Magoulias, Harry inducted them as new members of the Rotary Club of Springfield (image on left). They both received their blue membership badges and Rotary pins. Harry reported that we plan to have a formal orientation program for new members in October. 
Each new member had an opportunity to speak about their lives and interest in joining Rotary. The whole club applauded them and welcomed them to our club. Allison has participated in several previous meetings as a guest of John Webb, and Jason has attended several as a guest of Bill Smith. Be sure to introduce yourself to these new members if you have not already done so! We are delighted to have these wonderful individuals as members of our club.
