We would like to be more vigilant about honoring the staff and volunteers who give years of service to camp. If you know anyone that you feel should be recognized, send that information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This past year, we have had a few of our staff retire or move on from their camp role. While we at WMC are sad to see them go and are already missing them; we are excited for their future endeavors! You may have had interactions with these staff members over the years, and for that reason we could use your help in wishing them well!
Staff leaving include:
Pam Lansing – Housekeeper/Hospitality for over 10 years. Although Pam has finished her journey with WMC, she is continuing her professional career with a local insurance agency. Pam always went above and beyond to add personal care for each event and cared greatly for the staff and guests that came through our gates. Pam would donate items from home, recruit family to help with minor repairs, and always had a new idea she wanted to test out to make things run smoother!
Shirley Spittles – Shirley stepped down as our Office Manager a few years ago and continues to help when she can; including as volunteer Secretary for our Board of Officers. You may have also seen Shirley welcoming guests, serving coffee or running errands on behalf of camp. For over 9 years, Shirley has been such a generous person to work with. Always willing to help wherever needed. Shirley spends her days with family and stays involved with the local community. You can’t walk anywhere next to Shirley without running into someone who knows her. Shirley has a great way of seeing things from a different perspective, reminding us to consider what the guests might think! Did we mention that she’s a big ball of positive energy?
Tricia Austin – Volunteer Accountant and procurer of delicious cookies for over 6 years. Tricia and her husband, Pastor John Austin, are long time supporters and avid advocates for Camp. Tricia has really helped reshape the behind-the-scenes logistics of our organization. Sound financial advice, great spokesperson, networker, and an incredibly kind individual. Always a great source of advice and a good sounding board, Tricia’s years of experience and passion for her work were greatly needed and appreciated.
To show our appreciation, we are putting together a gift for these three individuals. If you have a photo, message, quip or simple “thank you” for one (or all) of the staff that you would like to submit, I know they would appreciate the thought. It doesn’t have to be much, but it can be as much as you want!
To send farewell greetings contact our Marketing Director, Christian, at Info@whitememorialcamp.com.
In your email please include the tagline “Retirement Gift,” the name of the person your submission is for along with your name, and then whatever message you would like to share.
