I have owned my home in Summit County since 1968 and became a full-time resident nine years ago. During those nine years I chaired the senior silent auction at the Rummage sale, which now brings in $8,000-$10,000 each year. I co-chaired the silent auction for Leon Joseph Littlebird on January 30, which raised over $20,000 for his cancer treatment. I have been an active member of the SCSC board for five years. I am on the board of Alpenglow Chamber Music Festival, which I chaired for the past six years. Other past board chairmanships include: 510 Groveland homeowners co-op, Mpls; Hubert Humphrey Institute of Foreign Affairs Advisory Committee, U of MN; Women’s Leadership Forum of MN; Chi Omega Alumnae of Denver and Chi Omega House Board, CU. For several years I organized silent auctions at St. Olaf Catholic Church in Minneapolis to benefit the church’s home for the homeless. My special times are dancing, playing bridge and hiking with Al and being with our grandchildren.
