Service Unnoticed Still Sincerely Appreciated
You may have heard me refer to myself as a social capitalist. This term refers to someone who believes that, like human and financial capital, there is tangible value in the social networks that are created in neighborhoods, communities and among people. A healthy community is made up of strong social networks. Both an indicator of and a mechanism for the development of social capital is through the volunteer network in our community. Recently, I had lunch with two amazing ladies, Karren Leslie, and Irene Slack. These dynamic individuals have volunteered for many years at the Covington Home. They have provided tours, solicited funds, watched over this home, and made recommendations for improvement of this vital piece of our history. Their service is often unsung and rarely noticed, but I would like to give them a big thank you and let others know of the great work that they do. Using Karren and Irene as examples, I would like to personally thank all of the volunteers we have in this city, from the umpires and coaches in the field, to those who staff our historic site and run our citys festivals. Thank you, thank you!! Our Washington City is a much richer place because of your service and the investment you have made of yourself in keeping us connected.
