Meet New Member Lynne Henderson
Lynne Henderson was born and raised in a small town in Michigan. After getting her undergraduate degree, she moved to the Bay Area and earned her PhD in psychology.
Her special interest began to focus around shyness and social phobia, and she learned that the pain of shyness can be relieved by changing automatic thoughts and beliefs and adopting new behaviors. She founded the Social Fitness Center in Palo Alto, was the founder and co-director of the Shyness Institute at Stanford, and directed the Shyness Clinic for over 25 years.
In 1980 she met Austin. As a single mom with 3 kids, Lynne knew right away he had the values she wanted in a husband. Austin’s story is that although she had children, it did not deter him and when he fell in love he got 4 for the price of 1!
Here in Berkeley Lynne keeps very busy running Social Fitness workshops as well spending time with Austin and their three children and two grandchildren. She also loves to read and enjoys theatre, movies, and hiking in the hills and along the waterfront--keeping up with all that Berkeley has to offer and most especially what Rotary has to offer.
She has chosen to participate in the the Communication Committee and the Supportive Housing Committee.
Let’s welcome Dr. Lynne Henderson.
Successful Service Projects
The outpouring of ideas from Tina’s presentation on March 29 was wonderful, providing some amazing suggestions for projects. She went home with 54 stickies to mull over and try to assemble into a future plan for assessment.
Some comments were general such as “This club has incredibly talented and qualified professionals . . . use these talents.” Others suggested a wide range of specific local and international projects and community partners such as BYA and YEAH.
Five members stood up to present the outcome from their table’s discussions:

- Resources for homeless students at Berkeley High
- Mobile wash stations for the homeless
- Joining the Food Shift movement
- Providing refugees with orientation services
- Staffing the August 18th Berkeley Pet Adopt-a-thon
Here are another few ideas:
-  Set up internships for Interact
-  Clean up the waterfront
-  Fix Berkeley’s potholes
-  Plant breadfruit trees in Jamaica (hurricane restoration)
-  Cataract surgery in Ghana
-  Revamp community center in Kenya
-  Cameroon project “Afrika Morgen"
And many, many more.  Thank you to everyone for their ideas.  Stay tuned for more information.
