A lovely April evening found Working In Neighborhoods staff, supporters and friends gathered in a festive environment at WIN to celebrate “35 Years of Volunteers.” Over those years of WIN history, literally thousands of dedicated people served as volunteers to help build and repair houses, answer phones, help with neighborhood beautification, perform various office functions to assure smooth operartions and assist in innumerable other ways to further the mission of WIN.
After refreshments and a warm welcome by S. Barbara Busch and Randy Kuvin, board member Ellen Frankenberg presented the Volunteer Leadership Award to Mr. Edward Wells. Next, S. Barbara recognized the contributions of twelve individuals and 10 community groups for outrstanding and long-term service. WIN staff presented attractive and informative display board describing and illustrating the work of the Community Development, Energy Education, Homebuyer Education, Foreclosure Prevention, and Community Organizing Departments at WIN.
