MARYSVILLE — For his enthusiasm and dedication toward serving young people in the city of Marysville, Daryn Bundy has been recognized by Mayor Jon Nehring as September 2013’s Volunteer of the Month.
Bundy currently works in a number of leadership positions throughout the city. These positions include serving as president of the General Advisory Council in the Marysville School District’s Career and Technical Education Program, as a chair on a vocational committee that assists the Academy of Construction and Engineering at Marysville Getchell High School, and as president of the Marysville Noon Rotary Club.
In addition to his leadership roles in the community, Bundy owns Bundy Carpets, a carpet and remodeling business that has operated in Marysville since 1975. The business has supported the Rotary Club since 1985.
Rotary’s most recent project is the annual “Pumpkins for Literacy” pumpkin patch at the Smokey Point Plant Farm. The program raises money for youth literacy programs in Marysville and Lakewood schools during the month of October.
With help from fellow Rotarians, Marysville Police Chief Rick Smith and Lakewood High School Principal Dale Leach, Bundy is working to start up Interact Clubs, Rotary’s service club for young people aged 12-18 years. Interact Club helps youth develop leadership skills, and learn the value of individual responsibility, through service projects that club members complete throughout the year. With Bundy’s leadership and volunteer experience, it is clear to see why he is passionate about this Rotary initiative.
“Daryn is quick to remind that Rotary’s mantra is ‘Service Above Self,’ so he is happy to share credit with his wife, the Marysville Noon Rotary Club family, and the community he calls home,” Nehring said of Bundy.
Both his wife Lisa and his daughter Alexis were present when Bundy was honored.
