Rotary Welcomes New Member

Martha Richardson, Program Chair, introduced Katharine McDowell, one of our newest members of Fillmore Rotary, who gave a Kraft Talk about her life. She grew up in Gilroy, CA on a working horse ranch. Her father trained horses and they hosted summer camps where children would come and enjoy ranch life and horses. She received her first pony when she was four. Katharine graduated from Christopher High School, and within the next few years had studied abroad in both Japan and Germany. She attended Pepperdine University where she began her library career. She and her husband lived on a boat, in the Ventura Harbor, before moving to Fillmore to become Fillmore’s new librarian. Her enthusiasm is contagious!
