Tamara Morgan is the newest member of the Lewes-Rehoboth Beach Rotary Club. Morgan is an accountant for State Line Building Supply in Selbyville, which supplies building materials to area contractors. She has worked in the accounting field for more than 30 years. “I just love the exactness of accounting,“ she said. “There is only one right way to get to the answer.”
A native of Downingtown, Pa., Morgan grew up in Arizona before moving to Wisconsin at age 25. There she raised her two children, Stephanie, 28, and Rod, 34, who both live in Milwaukee, Wis. In 2010, she moved to Lewes because she always wanted to live by the ocean. “I have a photo of my mother, pregnant with me, standing on the Rehoboth Boardwalk. So I felt like I was here before,” she joked.
Morgan joined Rotary because she wanted to be more involved in the community and help people. “I had heard about Rotary for years but never realized all the good work they did. Their ideal of service above self and their four-way test to measure all they say and do really struck a chord with me.” She is looking forward to helping her community while building lasting friendships.
One of her responsibilities with the club includes renting out the Rotary Pavilion on Savannah Road to churches, clubs and organizations for their events. The pavilion includes a massive barbecue pit that the club uses to raise money for community projects. Last year, members purchased a $1,000 Shelter Box. Shelter Boxes provide shelter to a family of four displaced by natural disasters. They include a tent, sleeping bags and cooking supplies.
Morgan is also the accounting resource on a Rotary committee working with PATS Aircraft in Georgetown. Rotary is assisting PATS with recruiting and training initiatives. She also serves on the club’s scholarship committee. Morgan enjoys all water sports and is looking forward to another summer at the beach. Most recently, she has developed a devotion to an organic, chemical-free lifestyle.
“Tamara has been active with Rotary from the moment she joined,” said Rotary President Bruce Summer. “With her financial background, she brings unique business skills to our club.”
