For eleven years, seven women have banded together as the Women’s Service Day planning team to help build awareness about the needs for women and children in the Holland/Zeeland community. But all good things must come to an end at some point.
We are honored to have served our community with our friend, Waltraud Beckmann, who has recently taken the position of Organizer Emeritus so she can spend more time with her family and focus her energy on other volunteer interests and hobbies.
If you’ve participated in Women’s Service Day, you may have worked alongside Waltraud on a crew and witnessed her tireless energy and enthusiasm for getting work done. Each year she has been the leader behind our donation drive, helping direct volunteers to organize their contributions, then managing the distribution process to deliver goods to the recipient of our day’s donations.
A researcher and innovator at heart, we’ve always appreciated her fresh insights and zeal for creativity in the planning process of each event.
Although we know she’s not leaving our community, we will miss having her join our planning team meetings. Thank you, Waltraud, for your years of service to our team, our event, and our community!
