elects new directors
Shepherd's Center of the Cannon Valley held their annual retreat earlier this month and elected four new directors to the board. New to the board are Helen Baughman, Dick Mensing, Dennis Sjoquist and Gary Esterby. These new board members will serve a three-year term.
Re-elected as Shepherd's Center Chairman was Loren Evenrud, elected vice-chair was John Hobert, Rue Boykin is the new secretary and Bill Althoff the treasurer. As the mission statement explains, "Shepherd's Center of the Cannon Valley is a non-profit organization promoting lifelong community involvement for senior adults through intergenerational, interfaith activities which promote significance, purpose and meaning for fruitful lives."
Shepherd's Center extends its heartfelt thanks to the members going off the board. After serving six years, Lou Schulz, Evie Strack, Glenn Aronson and Mary Ellen Sturm will now be on the advisory board. Carol McKitrick also left the board after a three-year term.
The primary purpose of Shepherd's Center is to enrich the age 55 plus years with opportunities to make a significant difference in not only your own life, but the lives of others. Rod Johnson continues to serve as the executive director and Twyla Geiken is the administrative assistant for Shepherd's Center of the Cannon Valley.
