Congratulations to Allen Ng of the Rotary Club of Marin Evening for being selected as Rotary District 5150's Rotarian of the Month for November 2023! Allen Ng has been a Rotarian since 2008. During those years he has served in many positions including Past President in 2016-17, current Club Treasurer since 2017, Club Board member, Chair of the Foundation Board, and an active participant in countless fundraising projects.
As Chair of the Youth Services Committee, Allen was instrumental in initiating many youth service projects on behalf of Marin Evening Rotary. Allen sponsored numerous scholarships for students. In the past 18 months, two of those students graduated from college and started their careers. Allen gathered and distributed dictionaries to Venetia Valley, San Pedro, and Verde Elementary Schools. Before, during, and after the Pandemic, Allen served as a camp counselor for the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy camp (RYLA) mentoring our leaders of the future.

For 26 years, Marin Evening Rotary has been giving the Nicholas Green Award to a student at Bodega Bay School who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to service. This award was in memory of Nicholas Green, a former student of the school who was killed in a robbery attempt while traveling with his parents in Italy. His parents immediately donated his organs, opening the door to an organ donor program in Italy.
This past summer Allen along with other executives of Marin Evening Board sat down with other Marin clubs to discuss a path toward merging. Allen immediately participated in the search and negotiation to secure an affordable venue for multiple clubs to meet as we explored opportunities. During this time of transition within our Club and while wearing multiple hats and participating in all transition activities, Allen kept his eye on his Rotary goals, securing dictionaries for schools, participating in RYLA planning, and recognizing a Nicholas Green recipient assuring that the work of Marin Evening Rotary continued to have an impact on our community.

Allen’s passion for Youth Services and commitment to service have been an inspiration to us all. We at the Rotary Club of Marin Evening are honored to have Allen Ng as our valued member. Allen is most deserving to be recognized as District 5150’s Rotarian of the Month for November 2023!
