Christine Burns, District 7890
Holyoke Rotary Club
 
I joined the Holyoke Rotary Club in 2004, served as president in 2008-2009 and as Assistant District Governor from 2010-present, first with area 3 and now area 2. I am a multiple Paul Harris Fellow. 

Being involved not only in my local Club and the District but also internationally I enjoy a full Rotary experience. I'm currently an active member of two Rotary fellowships; International Fellowship of Quilters and Fiber Artists and International Fellowship of Scouting Rotarians.

My passion is helping alleviate odd insecurity in children. I chair the Holyoke Public Schools weekend backpack program which provides food for kids on weekends and vacations when they’re not in school to receive free breakfast and lunch.

I’m a children’s entertainer and teacher of music by trade, and have received many honors for this including Business Woman of the Year (2008) and Woman to Watch in Creative Arts (2010).

I live in Holyoke, Massachusetts, USA with my husband, Patrick; daughter, Pearl and 14 chickens.
