New Millcreek Rotary member Julie Jones was raised in Cottonwood Heights and currently lives in the Sugarhouse area with her husband, one hound (4 Legs and a Nose), a "teenage" cat, and two bee hives. She loves all animals, the outdoors, cycling, mountain biking and hiking. She loves to travel, but she is always happy to come home! Her favorite way to tour a city is on foot.
Julie has worked in the local tile and floor covering industry for about 30 years and has experience in distribution, as well as commercial and residential estimating, project management and sales. In her youth, she was a banker!
She says that for many years, the only thing she knew about Rotary was taking a break at the Rotary Park after biking up City Creek Canyon! At some point, she learned it is a service organization, but perceived it was a very exclusive club. Since her friend Jayne Barnett (our President-Elect!) joined the Millcreek Club, she’s gained much better insight into just what a wonderful, hands-on opportunity it is to help others and serve both the local community and others worldwide, which appeals to her. After I learned that Millcreek is the "fun" club and became acquainted with club founder Judy Zone, she attended the Wine Into Water event and was sold!
She cherishes her longtime friends and always looks forward to meeting new ones!
"For no one…….Had quite such pleasant friends as mine, Or loved them half as much as I did."
