Nathan and Corrin Perry become new members of the Rotary Club of Newport, Oregon

      Rotary of Newport would like to welcome two new members to our club, Nathan and Corrin Perry.  Lieutenants Nathan and Corrin Perry are the Corps Officers of the Salvation Army Newport Corps, which serves all of Lincoln County. They are both pastors and Social Services administrators and love serving their community in many different ways, which include leading worship services, spiritual and emotional care, youth music instruction, and outreach to those in need through social services. They have lived in Newport for 4 years and have a son, named Ezra, who is 14 months old. Newport has felt like home, as Nathan and Corrin both grew up in smaller tourist communities in the Midwest, Nathan from Michigan, and Corrin from Iowa.  They are excited to join the Rotary Club of Newport and look forward to getting to know other Rotarians.
