Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson

Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson

Goshen Rotarians Nan Gill-Wilson and David P. Wilson are professionals in several branches of show business. The have brought their own talents and performing knowledge to the aid of their Rotary Club in a number of ways. Goshen Rotary manages to have at least one major event every month of the year. One of these fundraisers is “Goshen’s Got Talent,” a show based on local amateur performers—although David and Nan have found amateurs with professional chops. While “Goshen’s Got Talent” benefits the community service of Goshen Rotary—which includes dictionaries for elementary school, disaster relief, scouting, and the Braeside-Museum Village project—Nan and David also have developed “Once More Frankly!” which supports The Rotary Foundation. Their involvement in Willy Gilly Productions, the Acting Anyone Academy, and The Academy of Film Television Stage and Performing Arts also manages to entail Rotary connections in various ways.
