The Rotary Club of Forest Grove is proud to welcome its three newest members. Tim & Evelyn Orr and Jonathan Skeele were presented for induction at the club’s June 15 meeting.

Tim & Evelyn Orr have been members of the Forest Grove community for 22 years. Tim is retired from jobs in manufacturing and in project management. Born in California, Tim grew up as an Air Force brat and went to attend UC Riverside. He holds a master’s degree in French literature.

Evelyn is employed with gearUp Sports, a sports uniform supplier based in Hillsboro. Working remotely gives Evelyn more time to focus on her passion for volunteering. Among her volunteer endeavors is serving as chair of the City of Forest Grove’s Committee for Community Involvement.

Together, Tim and Evelyn have five children, ranging in ages from 26 to 46, and two grandchildren. Their youngest, Aaron, grew up in the Forest Grove community.

Jonathan Skeele was born and raised in Washington and moved to Oregon in 1977, first living in Bend before moving to Portland for a career in the tech industry. He earned his undergraduate degree from Linfield and his master’s of business administration from Oregon.

Jonathan and his wife, Yvonne, were married in 1994 and have lived in Forest Grove since 2009. They have two children, Joey (26) and Nina (23), both of whom graduated from Forest Grove High School.

Jonathan is retired after a career at Intel and currently has a real estate photography, video and drone service. When not doing photography, he enjoys working on home projects, walking their new Labrador retriever, hiking and RV camping. Jonathan is also involved with work with the Forest Grove Foundation.

Membership in the Rotary Club of Forest Grove is open to all people who wish to make a difference in the Forest Grove, Cornelius, Banks and Gaston communities. For more information, please visit
