Jeff Lines selected as incoming assistant governor for Rotary District 5100


Jeff Lines, a member of the Lewis River Rotary Club in Battle Ground, was recently appointed the incoming assistant governor for the Clark County Region of Rotary District 5100.

Lines has been a Rotarian for over 18 years and will assume his term as assistant governor on July 1, stated a news release. He will succeed Nelson Holmberg of Three Creeks Rotary Club. 

Lines will oversee eight rotary clubs in Clark County and will also meet with area club presidents and clubs on a monthly basis. His responsibilities will include encouraging club goals, fostering membership and assisting with questions or problems club presidents have. 

“It’s just another avenue of Rotary I have a curiosity about and I love working with people,” Lines stated in the release. “I won’t be directing (club presidents), rather, I will be there when they have questions.”  

His goals as assistant governor are “to keep things running the way they’ve been running and to keep learning many things I don’t already know.”

Rotary District 5100, which encompasses the northern portion of Oregon and Clark County, has 12 assistant governors and includes over 2,900 Rotarians who work to improve their local communities and take on projects overseas. 

“The assistant governors have multiple training events to teach them their responsibilities and build strong relationships between district leaders,” stated the release. 

Lines is the past president of the Lewis River Rotary Club. He also served as club treasurer, youth services director and sergeant-at-arms. He was the chair of the District 5100 awards and recognition committee for three years and was also a Rotary Foundation specialist for the Clark County region. 

“I never get tired of it,” Lines stated in the release. “It’s fun to be part of something that helps somebody who can’t help themselves.”
