I have Volunteered at Vance Elementary, Hall Fletcher Elementary in the Library and working with Residents at Brooke Howell in chair exercise and minor sewing jobs.
Love walking, hiking and spending time with two spoiled lovable pups.

How long have you been a member at Trinity, and what do you like best about it?

I have been a member of Trinity since 1991.  I love the diversity at Trinity and especially what and how we serve others.  In Mission,  Red Wagon Sunday and how willing everyone is to bring gifts to donate to local organization. Feeding the people in Pritchard Park on the first Sunday of the month.  Utilizing our youths talents and gifts in worship and most of all the warmth of our members ( our church Family).

What is something interesting about yourself that others might no know?

 A few years ago I walked 15 miles in less than 4 hours at a program called Take the Lake.,  this was at Lake Waccamaw  NC.  Flat land I might add..
