In my volunteer position as an Ombudsman “advocate for the elderly” we have a District Office Manager (DOM) that oversees all of us. We have been fortunate to have a bright, articulate, detail oriented young lady for the past two years who has now found a higher paying position, although she will be staying with the Elderly theme. Only downfall is she is relocating to Tallahassee, their gain – our loss. As the hospitality chairman we decided amongst us to buy her a gift certificate to “Bed, Bath and Beyond” to buy some goodies for her new abode. I baked a cake in the shape of a butterfly and decorated it with white fluffy frosting and sprinkles and a big pan of brownies.
We will await nervously for a new appointee and hope she will be as good as our Michele. She made our meetings and paperwork a breeze and a joy to be a volunteer. With luck I will be nominated for an award to be presented in Tallahassee next year and we can touch bases there. I will put that on my ‘goals to be met’ list. In the meantime, we plan to stay in contact via email, telephone……Good Luck.
