Hockey Season is here and this week's Rotary Person of Action could not be happier...
Khale Lenhart, Partner Attorney with Hirst Applegate, LLP. Rotarian since 2012
Other than Rotary, which community organizations are you involved in? How does that involvement reflect what you most value about Rotary?
I am on the Laramie County Library System Board of Directors (former Chair, currently Treasurer).  I have been involved with the library because it is one of the gems of our community and because libraries are places where people of all types, regardless of background, social status, or wealth, can come to engage with ideas on a level playing field.  Libraries, and our libraries here in Laramie County especially, operate in accordance with the 4 way test. 
What advice would you give to a person just joining or considering joining Rotary?
I would say go for it.  Rotary is a great way to get involved in your community, learn about everything from our local community to global concerns, and to meet like-minded people who might be outside your normal social circles.  Rotary has been a great experience for me, and I am sure it would be for anyone else who gives it a try.
What is your favorite winter or summer activity and why?
I am a big hockey fan.  I still play beer league hockey (poorly) and follow the Calgary Flames.  I got in to hockey as most hockey players do: being born Canadian.  I was born in Calgary and my dad played growing up, so it was pretty much inevitable.
What is your favorite book (business and/or pleasure)? What did you love about it?
My favorite book is All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy.  It’s a great story about struggle, sacrifice, and loss, set in the American West.  It is a beautifully written story and takes place in a time and place that I can imagine a lot of my own ancestors existing it. 
If you can meet face to face with one person (dead or alive), who would that be and why?
Alexander Hamilton.  It was his mind and his thoughts about how American government should be set up that largely shaped our country today.  It would be fascinating to get his thoughts on how he envisioned American society developing compared to how it actually exists today.  He also has an amazing “rags to riches” story.
