The Rotary Club is pleased to announce their newest member… Linda Cassens! Dr. Linda Cassens practiced as a licensed Psychologist for 15 years and was instrumental in her family business, Cassens Transport.
Among Linda’s many philanthropic contributions are her dedication to two YMCA’s (Our Marco Island Y and Edwardsville, Illinois Y where she developed the Early Childhood Development Center) and Allison’s Friends of Hope, a foundation which Linda founded in memory of her daughter to raise money for cancer research with over $1-Million raised and donated. Not only have Linda’s financial contributions improved the lives of thousands of people, the donation of her time and talent have also proved instrumental to many of the organizations on whose boards and committees she has sat and continues to serve, by providing her leadership skills, her knowledge and compassion.
In her spare time, Linda enjoys Italian cooking, reading, sports, travel and music. She rings in the Bell choir and is a Stephen Minister at the Marco Presbyterian Church. Linda believes, “Life is about Giving Back.” If there was a Rotary award for “A Rotarian of All Seasons,” Linda would be the perfect candidate to receive it.
Welcome to the Rotary family, Linda!
