Governor Audrey Wottrich- Rio Vista Lions Club
DG Audrey and her husband, Brian, have lived in California since 1981 when Brian was transferred by Bechtel corporation in London to the San Francisco office. She was told it was a 2-year assignment, 34 years ago!! They have 3 grown sons, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. Audrey worked in the Bay Area real estate industry for 20 years before retiring to Rio Vista in 2003.
Audrey joined the Ygnacio Valley Lions Club in Walnut Creek in 1995 and transferred to the Rio Vista club when she retired. Ygnacio Valley Lions sent Audrey to the first Lions Leadership forum in Chicago in 1997 where she met esteemed PID Bill Biggs and PID Kay Fukushima, who were members of the faculty. This was an excellent experience, with a week in Chicago in 1997 and returning again in 1998. She made friends there from North America, Canada and the Caribbean. Some have been recently rekindled via Facebook.
She credits much of her knowledge to the guidance received from PDG’s Kertice Poon, the late Jean Roybal, Ben Anderson and Don Webb while serving as their Zone or Region chair.
When time allows, both Audrey and Brian like to travel to the UK to see family and friends. Europe, Africa, Mexico and Japan have also been memorable destinations in years past.
DG Audrey’s motto is “CARRY ON SERVING” and she is very much looking forward to serving as your District Governor.
