Sponsor spotlight: Rotary Club of Edmonds announces new president, officers

Beth Kealy

What an amazing and challenging time it has been for our community these past few months. Our club, though we had to move to online meetings, continued to work in our community supporting the many programs we serve.

Every year, on July 1, we usher in a new leadership team. We welcome new president Beth Westenhaver Kealy. Beth is an Ohio native and has lived in Edmonds for almost 18 years. Beth’s love of travel has taken her on numerous occasions to Africa, where she has worked with Rhino Conservation groups. One of her favorite places on earth is Palau for scuba diving.

Beth and her husband John are big animal lovers, and are “parents” to two shiba Inu dogs, and three cats. Beth was president of our club in 2015, and we look forward to her leadership and experience to guide us through what will surely be a challenging year.

  1. Wow! As the 1st woman inducted into Edmonds Rotary in 1987, how exciting to see that your entire board is made up of women–with the exception of Randy and Pat, two great guys!
    Congratulations to all!


  2. Congratulations Madam President,
    I was reading about your club and got interested on environmental matters. I would request that you partner with Rotary Club of Kiserian which have 25 acres of land on a historic hills for tree planting but has not done much due to lack of fencing and seedlings. We are on the gateway to the Mara National Parks in Kenta. Come for animal treats too.
