HAVE YOU SPOTTED OUR BILLBOARD?
THANKS TO A GRANT FROM THE INITIATIVE FOUNDATION IN LITTLE FALLS, MN WE ARE LEASING THE SPACE FOR THE NEXT SIX-MONTHS!
Each month we will be highliting a volunteer who makes a difference in our community,
So happy to introduce you to Annette &Chuck Tryon.
Annette has been volunteering with RiverWorks since the very beginning. In fact, she was on the committee that planned our grand opening events in March of 2010. Annette and her right hand man Chuck do so many good things for this community! They served as mentors to the RiverWorks Board of Directors; launch the RiverWorks Thrift Store. Chuck serves on the Rockford School Board, he works with Middle Schools kids on growing grapes, they both are involved at Riverwood Covenant as greeters and you see them at many Rockford School events.
Annette has coined the saying "volun-told" and Chuck just smiles and helps out where ever he is needed.
Annette is the co-chair of Thousand Hearts Crow River Serve Day (Saturday, May 21) and from that she had a vision of how we could do more and she launched Thousand Hearts 365 which looks for ways to help people in our community every day of the year not just one day! http://thousandhearts.weebly.com/
A quote from Annette, “RiverWorks has given this community something to rally around. One of their core values is service; we believe that people benefit from serving and being served. That has given our community a positive charge!”
Thank you Annette & Chuck for your volunteer heart and for your leadership!
