Welcome New Member, Karen Wojahn! Karen was raised in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin (a suburb of Milwaukee). She is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin School of Business in Accounting. Karen worked in government and public accounting and actively volunteered with many non-profits. In her spare time, she enjoys embroidery, traveling, reading, golf, and cross-country skiing. In 2021, Karen and her husband, Dennis, moved to Plymouth, MN from Green Bay, WI; Dennis joined the Golden Valley Rotary Club. Unfortunately, Dennis passed away in September, 2022. They have two children and four grandchildren.
"Dennis is the reason for my involvement in Rotary," said Karen. "He joined the Menasha, Wisconsin Club in 1981. In 1986, we moved to Green Bay and he joined the Green Bay West Club. In 1983, we hosted the first of 11 Rotary Youth Exchange Students plus numerous adult exchange participants. Our son, Patrick, was a Rotary Exchange Student with the summer and year programs. Over the years, I have attended many Rotary meetings - local, district, and the 1992 International Conference in Orlando FL. I love Rotary because of its involvement in causes to make this world a better place."
Welcome, Karen! We are thrilled to have you as a member of the Rotary Club of Golden Valley!
