OUR HIGHEST THOUGHTS
If, as G.K. Chesterton wrote, thanks are the highest form of thought, then we can express no higher thoughts than those of gratitude to our supporters.
One vital measure of that support is dollars. Another measure encompasses the hours, skill, sweat, and persistent effort contributed by our volunteers. At each annual meeting, we honor this second category of supporters with our Volunteer of the Year award.
This year’s award went not to a single individual, but to the entire Campaign for Mount Grant Preserve Steering Committee. This group has worked with extraordinary diligence to write articles, organize and participate in many events, serve as docents on Mount Grant’s Sundays at the Summit, and help raise almost $2 million (so far) from more than 700 families. The committee includes:
Keith Wentworth and Thor Hanson (co-chairs), Andrea Anderson, Michael Dean, Eileen Drath, Geoff Dunbar, Carolyn Haugen, Alice Hurd, Lisa Lawrence, Barbara Marrett, Liza Michaelson, Tom Nolan, Fiona Norris, Laura Norris, Marilyn O’Connor, Theresa Simendinger, Steve Simpson, Jim Skoog, Bob Stavers, Billie Swalla, Joe Todd, Leslie Veirs, and Carla Wright.
We convey our highest thoughts—and deepest thanks—to our 2016 Volunteers of the Year!
