New members are added to the board
The members of the Friends of the West Linn Adult Community Center have spoken. Landslide victories were the norm for the four new officers elected by the membership about a week ago.
The new board of directors includes new officers in the positions of president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.
Scott Foster, a long-time volunteer in our kitchen, was elected to the presidency. He brings youth, energy and boyish good looks with which to lead the largely female membership.
Bill Barger, a kind of Man-Friday around the WLACC for the last four years, has accepted the position of vice president. Bill already drives our bus on our twice-a-month field trips around the area and hes an excellent problem solver who is quick to implement a good idea.
Margaret Dejardin is our new treasurer. She also volunteers in our gift shop and has lots of bookkeeping experience from her years at West Linns old Thriftway store. Shes calm, smart and has a great smile.
Our new secretary is Irene Jones, a relative newcomer to the center who has become a regular participant in our walking group and card playing groups. Irene also helps out in the kitchen when needed.
Board members who will continue in their roles include Marge Russell as director of mailings, Rose Ek as the front desk volunteer coordinator and Barbara Handley as our membership coordinator.
