January Volunteer of the Month: Muriel Wentzien
Hostess extraordinaire Muriel Wentzien was honored as our Volunteer of the Month on January 8th.
Hospitality Chair Karen Gladyschild explains why:
Muriel is the embodiment of Democratic values. She is gracious, even-tempered, reliable, hard-working and always adds value to whatever she is involved in. Muriel tends to be quiet, so she can sneak up on you with her sense of humor. She will crack you up when you least expect it.
Muriel is a PCP and helps make our meetings welcoming and fun every month. She has delivered slate cards, donated to the Celsi raffle, volunteered at the Golf Tournament and attended numerous Democratic events.
In addition to her volunteer work for the Democratic Party, Muriel has been active with Habitat for Humanity. She has also worked with young children as a foster Grandma in schools and in child care settings. She is always looking for ways to improve her knowledge and skills, taking extra classes to become even better at helping the children she works with. She has also been proactive in advocating for more safety training in the settings where she works.
We are fortunate to have Muriel as a member, volunteer and friend.
