By Gilpin County Senior Living Board
The Gilpin County Senior Living Board of Directors wishes to thank Carol Snyder for her five years serving on the Board and her valuable work in all aspects of fundraising toward building Gilpin County’s first senior housing. Carol says that she will continue to be a volunteer with Senior Living at our fundraiser and outreach events after resigning the board for personal reasons in August. Carol is a friendly face at our events. She cultivated many community contacts to support our events and kicked-off our fundraising. Sharon Perea, past chair, states “Carol put her whole heart in her position as Funding Chairman. Dug right in and spent hours arranging for events. She spent days on the computer recruiting volunteers to work a booth as well as shopping for supplies. Carol kept track of the inventory, costs, and profit for each event plus worked with Rob Sawyer on the signs and info for events. She was always on top of everything needing to be done to make an event a success. Carol’s husband Woody was always at her side volunteering at events from start to finish!”
The volunteers and the Board have fond memories of her coordinating events from the first Classic Car Show this past July, to the Flea Markets and Winter Arts Fairs food booths, to the Annual Lasagna dinner in November. We appreciate her cheerful attitude and look forward to our continued relationship together.
Carol says in parting the Board, “I hope that everyone continues to support Gilpin County Senior Living as it is very important to have a residence in Gilpin County for our seniors.”
Submitted with many thanks by the Gilpin Senior Living Board of Directors: Rob Sawyer, Ardetta Robinson, Craig Holmes, Jeanne Nicholson, Joe Marr, Steve Boulter, and Sandy Hollingsworth.
