News! It’s been an exciting and eventful year for Simply Living, and we have a lot of updates to share. Come meet new members of the Board and join us in honoring the work of retiring Board President, Dan Barash, and toast our new Board President, Jenee Murphy. We will also announce our new Treasurer, Tim Montague, who has strengthened our fiscal operations together with Lisa Kreischer, our excellent keeper of the Quickbooks, and our new Social Media Manager Rachel Schank who has amplified our voice and reach throughout the community. Christine Hardin has resigned from the Office Manager position, and we will acknowledge her many contributions over the past 18 months.
As we proactively envision an expanded role for Simply Living in this time of climate emergency, we recognize individuals who share and demonstrate our mission to facilitate and create a more compassionate and sustainable community.
This year, Simply Living will honor Cathy Cowan Becker with the Carol Fisher Community Service Award. In her volunteer time, Cathy is chair of the Conservation Committee for Sierra Club Central Ohio Group, which is conducting
a campaign to ask the city of Columbus, Ohio, to commit to 100% renewable energy by 2050. She was trained as a Climate Reality leader in 2015 in Iowa and served as a mentor at the Climate Reality leadership training in Denver in 2017. She is a past group leader for the Columbus, Ohio, chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby, and has made stellar presentations at several Green New Deal Town Hall events this past year.
The Simply Living Board will announce program plans for the coming year. A complimentary buffet with pakoras (vegetable fritters), vegan lentil soup, salad and bread will be served. A full cash bar will be available for beverages.
