When I was asked to start a chapter in Kansas City the first team member I thought of was our Treasurer Peggy. I chose Peggy because I wanted someone to handle the chapter money that I had complete confidence in. I’ve known Peggy for over 30 years and she has been a dedicated employee of the Sugar Creek MO Police department for all 30+ years.
Now Peggy could have just handled the chapter money and I would have been thrilled. Yes she has handled the money for 5 or 6 years and there has never been a problem. But no, Peggy had to get physically and personally involved.
One day Peggy came to me and asked if we could do a craft show to make money for the chapter. I knew as is every fall I was too busy. I told her if she would like to do it go ahead.
We’ll go ahead is exactly what she did. Peggy arranged the whole thing from a food truck in the parking lot to getting 20 vendors to give $50 per booth.
Now she’s working on the 2nd annual craft fair. She is planning to have 50 vendors at the next one.
WAY TO GO PEGGY! With members like you, clients continue to get the help they need.
