Reason for BBB Participation:
As a long time resident of the Boyertown Area, I have been very impressed with the efforts of BBB to improve both the appearance of the commercial center of Boyertown and the quality of life in the Boyertown Area. There is a lot of pride and energy in this group, and I wanted to see if I could make a contribution toward helping the group meet its goals. My specific focus of interest is with the promoting the arts as part of a community improvement plan.

Current Volunteer Activities:
I am a member of the executive committee of the Boyertown-Oley Retired School Employees Association (BORSEA) and also serve as the group’s legislative chair.

Past Volunteer Activities:
When we lived in Bally, I was the chairperson of the borough planning commission. In addition, I was an active member of the Zodiac Players and of Limelight Productions, former community theater groups in Boyertown. Most recently, I was a member of the Board of Governors of Congregation Mercy and Truth, which is located in Pottstown.
