President Tim Garrison and Master of Ceremonies Jack Darnton swear in Jack Curtis, Courtney Orrock (a returning Rotarian), and Brady Turnage

     In what is officially the Anacortes Rotary Club’s largest, mass Zoom induction ceremony ever (okay, the first), we are proud to welcome three new members who have elected to embrace “Service Above Self”.  There is much to accomplish in 2021 and the community looks forward to their energy and contributions.  Meet Anacortes’ newest Rotarians:


Jack Curtis.   

Jack is a recently retired Naval aviator, fresh from commanding a Growler squadron at NAS Whidbey.  He now works as a government contract technical analyst and is a co-founder of End Speed Group, a leadership and organizational culture consulting firm, along with fellow new Rotarian Brad Turnage.  Jack stays busy coaching youth sports, volunteering at A Simple Gesture food bank, and spending many hours on the ACFL trails.


Courtney Orrock.   

Courtney Orrock has returned to Anacortes (and the club) after working for almost 10 years in Las Vegas, first at Sunrise Children’s Foundation, then at Wyndham Destinations, the world’s largest vacation club and exchange company.   Now a stay-at-home mom rearing an 18-month old daughter,  Courtney is looking forward to re-engaging with the Anacortes Arts Commission, Anacortes Library, Island Hospital Foundation and other worthy causes.


Brady Turnage. 

Brady (along with Jack Curtis) founded End Speed Group, utilizing his more than 20 years of experience building and leading teams in the Navy and as a lacrosse coach at the University of Delaware. Brady was the Commanding Officer of a carrier-based jet squadron at NAS Whidbey and is currently a Contract Instructor, training EA-18G Growler aircrews.
