Each week, we get to know a Boone Sunrise Rotarian by asking five simple, but reflective questions.
This week we feature Lane Robinson, Owner of Creekside Electronics. A native of Watauga County, Lane has long been one of the most active volunteers in our community. He joined Boone Sunrise Rotary in 2016 and quickly gravitated toward club leadership, serving as President in 2019-20. As a young child, he sold programs to patrons at Horn in the West, and continues to volunteer with the Southern Appalachian Historical Association as a member of their Board of Directors. In 2019, Lane received the Wade Brown Award for Community Involvement from the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce for his longstanding work toward bettering the High Country community.
What appeals to you most about being a Rotarian? Serving in the community, especially interacting with people
What has been your favorite Boone Sunrise Rotary service project to work on during your time with the club? Back2School Festival
What brought you to the High Country? Always been here
How has Boone Sunrise Rotary helped deepen your connections within the community? By meeting people who also want to give back that I would have never met had it not been for Rotary
How can the Boone Sunrise Rotary Club help the High Country thrive? It’s difficult to make change in any community as one person. Even though we (members of BSR) disagree on some things politically and religiously, we still love each other and work together for good. If somehow we can spread the thought throughout the High Country, that you can come together and do great things even when you disagree.
