Due to Covid-19, our annual meeting, campaign celebration and award recognition looked a bit different this year - and that is quite an understatement! We were still fortunate enough to have the opportunity to celebrate great progress towards our mission, with YOU, our community. Instead of hosting a physical celebration and meeting, we hosted a virtual ZOOM meeting on Thursday, June 25th at 7:30 a.m.
Donors, advocates and volunteers from all around were able to attend and witness all of those successes, large and small, from the past twelve months. Board Chairman, Chuck Eichelberger passed the gavel to incoming Board Chairman, Greg Lloyd. Campaign Chairman, Tim Troxell & UWWC President & CEO, Heather Guessford highlighted the successes from the past year's campaign. Together, we celebrated and recognized the organizations and individuals who continue to give their best to the mission of United Way and Washington County. We thank our event sponsor, CNB Bank, for supporting us, our mission and this event.
