Personal Statement
HOME: a gathering place to join together in laughter.  A place or feeling of belonging.  I am not a native of Evanston or Wyoming, but after 35 years here, this is definitely home.  My husband is a native to Evanston, as are his parents.  My children were all raised here.  Evanston is our home.  I have a love for the community of Evanston and the things our City and community have come together to accomplish.  I believe my husband, Rick, and I have instilled this love of community in our children and our friends also know how proud we are of our community.
Several years ago, I saw a quote by George Bernard Shaw that epitomizes some of my feelings for Evanston, WY and serving the community.  "I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.  I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live."   I believe that each of us should volunteer time, energy and efforts to improve our community. 
I am proud of the Evanston Urban Renewal Ball we hold annually.  I have been involved in most capacities required to host the Ball over the past 20 years.  It is a lot of work, but it is also a source of great pride to see what has been accomplished with the monies that are raised.
Home is where your heart is.
