Each month we will feature one of the many Glen Ellyn Rotary members that make such a difference in our communities. These are people that fill many roles in their day to day lives and apply Rotary values in everything they do. This month’s member is Dave “Doc” Clayton. Doc is skilled at storytelling. He has the gift of humor, while at the same time, sharing wisdom and life lessons that inspire us all to be better people.
