Dan Ingrum just returned from Lisbon, Portugal where he and his family attended the Rotary International convention. There were over 20,000 Rotarians and guests in attendance. His visit to Portugal was in preparation for his year serving as president of the Lodi Rotary Club for 2013-14, which started July 1.
Ingrum graduated from Lodi High School in 1981. He opened Danz Jewelers, located in Downtown Lodi in 1984, and joined the Lodi Rotary Club in 1992. In 2003, while on the board of the Rotary Club, he presented the idea of starting a science museum in Lodi, and with the help of the Lodi Rotary Club, the WOW Science Museum was opened.
Lodi Rotary Club will have fundraisers throughout the year benefiting local projects such as: Needham School, World of Wonders Science Museum, Hutchins Street Square, dictionaries for 5th graders, Camp RYLA, Mickey Grove Zoo outreach program, high school speech contests, high school scholarships, Salvation Army, clothing for children at Christmas, and others. They also support Rotary International in their goal of completely eradicating Polio from the planet.
