To the Elberta Village Council and to the Lovely People of the Town,
After three months of working in the Village office, helping where I was able, I feel it is in the best interest of all for me to take my leave and allow someone with more available time to step into the treasurer position. With the limited time I have available, I am filling a position that requires many more hours than I can give in a week.
Many heartfelt thanks to Village clerk Mary Kalbach for her bookkeeping skills and her “never give up” attitude. To Linda Manville, for her many hours of unrewarded work, her kind ear and soft words. To Jen Wilkins for her die-hard endless energy and all the work she does to benefit her town and its people. To Cathy Anderson, for her endless depths of knowledge and care of the Village parks and dunes. To Ken Bonney, for staying with the Village despite all the adversity he has faced in this job. To Joyce Gatrell, Ken Holmes, Diane Jenks, Robin Rommell and the rest of the active council for voting to allow the treasurer’s position to be by appointment rather than by election, thus affording me the opportunity to come into the office and offer what help I was able. Lastly, to Teri McGregor, for her experience with the fund balance software, her bright smile, professional persona, and her willingness to help out at the office.
I look forward to continuing the friendships that have formed during this time. Thank you, Elberta, for letting me be a part of your town for this short while.
With warm regards,
