If you’ve seen two dachshunds dressed as Alabama cheerleaders in the Pet Parade, you’ve been in Pam Wolls’ vicinity. “I’m the one wearing the Bear Bryant hat,” says the former head of the Tuscaloosa chapter of ‘Bama Alumni. “Roll, Tide, roll!”

A native of Coral Gables, the fun-loving manager of the Swag Lounge at Whitney Advertising also likes to humorously torture friends living in the sweltering Florida summers she left behind decades ago. “I tell them August is my favorite month in Park City; it’s so cool and green,” she smiles “I also love to talk about hiking in the colorful fall leaves - which they don’t have!”

Widely known in PC as a 1999 charter member of Sunrise Rotary and a former Club president, Pam remembers her father’s Rotary service. “We always attended meetings when we were on vacation, so I grew up in it.”

The Sunrise group “is like a family who gets up every Thursday morning for a 7:15 breakfast meeting,” she laughs. “We have a great time working on service projects. Being president was easy because Rotarians step up and do their jobs.”

“Nonprofits like the Rotary are something I love about Park City,” says Pam, whose commitment goes well beyond Sunrise. “I was on the Peace House board for two terms when the fabulous new shelter was built,” she recalls. “Last fall, I traveled to Uganda with the Hope Alliance to do eye clinics in small villages.”

Having raised daughter Dolly and son Camden in Park City, Pam was both a PCHS PTO President and Cub Scout leader. “32-year-old Dolly and 24-year-old Camden are out of college now,” she says fondly.  “We are currently awaiting the arrival of Dolly’s baby girl.”

Which we’re betting also means the arrival of another generation of energetic Parkites devoted, like Pam, to improving lives here and everywhere. We’re grateful!
