President Traci Lacock invites members and guests to join us at Little America for lunch on May 31st starting at 11:30 am for a special guest presentation by Andre van Hall. Mr. Hall inspires leaders and teams to adopt an attitude of curiosity. As the Curiosity Instigator, Andre challenges you to disrupt the status quo, ask questions, and seek new answers.
Our Rotarian of the Week is a distinguished citizen of Wyoming. She has had a remarkable career in the private and public sectors, as well as in service to Rotary and the Cheyenne community. She grew up in Big Piney, Wyoming, where her father was a ranch manager and game warden, and her mother was the High School Librarian. She graduated from Big Piney High School in 1966 in a class of 38, several of whom remain close friends. Always industrious, she worked during school on the ranch and in a men’s clothing store.
She graduated from Utah State University. She has pursued additional education as a graduate of the Land Title Institute and a management program for title insurance executives. She began her career in the title insurance industry in Kemmerer, WY, where she served as President and CEO of the Rocky Mountain Title Insurance Agency of Lincoln County. In 1984 Cindy Pomeroy was recruited to Cheyenne to be CEO of First American Title of Laramie County. Over a 20-year career she grew the agency to 36 employees and an 80% market share. She also was instrumental in increasing First American Title’s statewide business. Cindy served on, and chaired, many boards and commissions, including the Chamber, LEADS, the Botanic Gardens, and LCCC Foundation. The recipient of many awards and recognitions, she was the Cheyenne Realtors’ Business Person of the Year in 1990 and the Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the year in 1992.
In 2003 newly elected Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal asked her to bring her management and executive talents to the public sector by serving as the Director of the Department of Employment. It was an agency of over 330 employees with functions critical to the Wyoming economy such as Worker’s Compensation, Labor Standards, and OSHA. She worked as the Governor’s liaison to the Legislature and served as a policy advisor until 2010. In 2010 Cindy opened her consulting and lobbying business where she represented the title insurance industry, property and casualty and healthcare companies. She retired in 2015 but continues a very active community life. She is currently the President of the AD Chapter of PEO.
Cindy has been a Rotarian for 34 years. She was the fourth woman admitted to the Club. Fred Baggs was relentless in his encouragement of Cindy to serve as President, which she did from 2001 - 2002. She remembers it as a demanding job, the Club did not have the strong committee structure that it does now, so the President did a great share of the work. But she thoroughly enjoyed her service. She was instrumental in raising the funds for the Rotary Plaza in Lions Park. Cindy continues to serve on the Rotary Foundation Board and the LCCC Foundation Board, in addition to belonging to two book clubs and playing mahjong regularly.
Cindy has a son and daughter and four grandchildren. One of her grandsons is headed to Princeton on a lacrosse scholarship. Cindy is married to Bill, and he has children and grandkids.
Please stand to recognize our Rotarian of the Week – Cindy Pomeroy.
Brent Young has applied for membership to our club.  Brent is a Financial Advisor with Platte Valley Investment Center, Inc.  Brent is sponsored by Mary Schwem.
Frank was introduced by his sponsor, PE Lori Garrison.
Frank Magazine is all things Auburn University.  Frank received his BS in Chemical Engineering w/Specialty in Water Treatment from Auburn and is still very active with the Engineering Department.  He is a HUGE fan of the Auburn University Tigers and may even bleed orange and blue.
Frank worked for BetzDearborn, a global service company providing engineered chemical treatment of water and process systems in industrial applications for 14 years and rose to VP of the International Food Business Corporate Accounts.
Frank and his wife Sunnie moved to Cheyenne in 2000 and he joined Kabo Chemicals as Director of Sales.  For over a 20 year period Frank grew and directed this specialty food additive business through 6 divestitures and acquisitions while serving the worldwide market with major customers such as Coca-Cola, Pepsico, Frito Lay, Kraft, Proctor & Gamble, Cargill and many ethanol and protein industries.
Frank was the GM for the Cheyenne business Lubrizol, President of the Cheyenne business Noveon, Director of the specialty food chemicals group Emerald Foam Control and then DyStar.  In 2020 Frank became CEO of Melvin Brewing, the largest brewery in WY, serving distributors in 26 states.  Last December Frank helped with the sale of Melvin Brewing and then was finally able to “retire” at the beginning of this year.  
Frank has been very active in service to Cheyenne over the past 20 years.  He was a Board member for the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and was on their selection committee for the current President/CEO, an economic development board member with Cheyenne LEADS for multiple years, a CRMC Foundation board member for 4 years and a Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra board member that included the Selection Committee for hiring the current Maestro/Conductor.
So, since Frank is “retired” he is serving on the LC Library Foundation Board of Directors and the Western Vista FCU Board of Directors.  Frank is also a long time member of the Cheyenne Wine Society.  
According to Frank’s wife Sunnie, he enjoys traveling, especially to beaches and loves working around the house/yard and trimming their beautiful rose bushes.  Frank has a stepson Christopher, two grandchildren and one great-grandchild whom he adores. 
As for Rotary, Frank was a Rotarian in the Chicago area for many years before moving to Cheyenne and he looks forward to joining this esteemed group of folks and doing more to help in our community.  Please welcome Frank Magazine to our club.
On August 15, 2011, Andre Van Hall woke up and couldn't see below his chest. He would later be told by a doctor that he had  non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy. The prognosis - "you will be blind in two weeks."
It was a major blow to someone who by all measures is a high achiever who had helped run some of the most prestigious hospitality locals in the world, was the CEO of the Denver Athletic Club, and an Ivy League grad who speaks five languages. 
While lying on the gurney that August day, he decided the darkness he saw didn't need to be compounded with emotional darkness as well. He decided to embrace the changes that would soon become necessary to his life. On Wednesday, May 31, he will speak to the Rotary Club of Cheyenne about what it means to be a change leader and the role our natural curiosity plays in that process.  André and his wife Nancy reside in Denver, Colorado. Still an avid skier, André also enjoys tandem bicycling and cooking. Van Allen speaks for thousands of dollars each engagement, but is also a member of the Denver Rotary Club and has agreed to join us on May 31 for free. 
Rotarians are nothing if not leaders in our community. Andre will help us to keep that fire lit. 
So save the date, bring a friend, and join us as we hear from one of the top motivational speakers in the country. Click here to check out a little more about Andre.
