New Members Proposed

Last Updated: 5/16/19


I am recommending Richard (Rich) MacDonald for membership in Southtowne Rotary. I am his sponsor – I met him when he inquired online about joining our club. He came to our meeting on May 9th and was impressed by the warm social environment and the local service projects we do. Rich is a financial advisor, and First Vice President/Investments at Stifel.

For the past three years he has transitioned his business to the Eugene area, which he loves. He still has a client base in the Eastern US. He is a total wealth planner, and leverages an attorney and CPA for his client’s benefit. His wife, Sonia, is a full-time mother to their two children, Maureen (6) and Richie (4.) She also volunteers in local projects. His wife is from Columbia, and his mother-in-law lives with them. The family is working on bringing his father-in-law to the United States as well.

Rich was a member of the Rotary Club of Suffield, Connecticut Club from 2010-2015. He is a coach for his daughter’s soccer team and is eager to get more involved in this community. I think he will be an excellent addition to our club.
