It is my honor to announce, on behalf of Rotary District 7210's Nominating Committee, that Carrie Hernandez of Brewster Rotary has been selected to serve as District Governor for the 2026-27 Rotary year, subject to Rotary's administrative procedures.
Carrie initially joined Patterson Rotary in June 2015, and transferred to Brewster Rotary in 2021.  She has held many positions in both clubs, including being a two-time club president, secretary, assistant treasurer and Interact advisor. She has also participated on numerous District committees; Communications, Membership, Public Image, and Events.  She was Assistant Governor of Region 7 from 2019-2022 and 2023-2024, District Executive Secretary from 2020-2023 and currently is District Interact Co-Chair.  Notably, Carrie's mother, Penny Byron, served as our District Governor in 2014-15.
Carrie lives in Brewster with her 4 boys, Michael (21), Jaime (18), Tristan (16) and Landon (12), along with Michael’s black lab puppy Watson, and Jaime’s tuxedo cats Harley and Quinn. She has worked in the customer service field for 23 years.  She currently works at Patterson Auto Convenience Store, overseeing operations, where she enjoys being part of the family business owned by her uncle and working alongside both of her parents, her cousin, and her oldest son. She also volunteers with Relay for Life of Eastern Putnam and Brewster Chamber of Commerce. 
Carrie is looking forward to serving as District Governor and is excited to make new friends, catch up with old ones, and all of the fun to be had as a Rotarian.
Please join us in congratulating Carrie!
