EFFECTIVE MAY 1, 2013
Thank you to the Board Members who are stepping off the board; Jill Mariani, Ways & Means; Carolyn Davis, Communication; Sharon Coyle, Publicity. These three ladies have labored on our behalf for quite some time and are to be commended for their service! Please be sure to pass along your thanks when you see them. We also have new Board Members joining us; Anita Solano, Secretary and Denise Miller, Publicity.
Anita, her husband Alan and their youngest daughter Alyssa moved to Idaho Falls from Colorado in December 2010 and she has been a member of Newcomers for approximately 2 years. Alyssa attends Hillcrest High School, their two older daughters live in Brighton, Colorado and the family has a 3 yr old male Yorkshire Terrier named Elvis.
She loves to travel and says that visiting new places and experiencing new cultures with family and friends gives her great pleasure. Her passion is to help others in any way she can. She completed her Psychology degree, concentrating on counseling children, teens and adults and is currently employed as a flight attendant with United Airlines, working since 9/11 as a volunteer for the Employee Assistance Program volunteer through the Association of Flight Attendant Union, assisting coworkers (pilots & flight attendants) in their time of need. In addition to working for United, Anita is also a Director with Melaluca and she is proud to be part of their organization whose mission is “enhancing the lives of those we touch by helping people reach their goals” which seems to be Anita’s motto as well. If she wasn’t busy enough, Anita also works for Family Resource Center in Idaho Falls as a Psycho Social Rehabilitative Specialist, assisting others with an assortment of psychological ailments. In her spare time she is going to serve as Secretary on the Newcomers Board! Anita is easy to spot – she has a beautiful smile on her face all the time!
Denise moved to Idaho Falls from Alaska with her husband and is originally from England; she has been a member of Newcomers since 2003. She has served on the board in the past in the positions of Membership and Hospitality and she created the original Newcomers website! Denise works welcoming new folks to our area through her Welcome Services, delivering information and goodies to them from local business – she often brings them into our Newcomers club as well. She is a dynamic lady with a terrific sense of humor and tons of knowledge about this great place in which we live – I bet she could give a new piece of information to even the longest term residents. Spend 5 minutes with her and you’ll know how welcome she makes people new to the Idaho Falls area feel!
Please patronize these businesses and tell them you are a member of Newcomers and how much we appreciate their generosity. Without their donations, we could not have raised $6,600 for the weekly children's program at Domestic Violence.
