United Way Workers' Luncheon
Motivates Team For Campaign

Susan Berning, United Way Executive Secretary, addresses workers about their packets, to be
delivered next week.
It was a "gathering of the troops" at Friday's United Way Workers' Luncheon, hosted at the Southwest Dairy Museum, as packets were given to chairs of committees for distribution and Judy Tipping, this year's United Way Campaign, delivered a motivational speach to volunteers. "This is a group that is more like family," expressed Tipping. "Most of us have worked the annual campaign for years, but each year we welcome some new faces to add to our family. And, then there are others like Charlotte Henderson, who leave, but just can't stay away and come back to volunteer in a different capacity. It's truly a work of love for all of us as we go about helping others less fortunate in our community!"
Tipping use the fitting story of a flock of geese flying in a "V" formation, with each goose having its own important role, motivate the workers. "Not everyone is called to be the leader in the 'V' but for the gaggle to arrive at their destination safely, it takes every member doing their part, backing each other up, and helping those who struggle," advised Tipping.
Tipping reminded the workers that "common sense never goes out of style," when dealing with the public.
The 2012-13 Chair ended her presentation by thanking the Southwest Dairy Museum for sponsoring the annual worker's luncheon, and then compared this year's campaign to a large ball, that is round and has no beginning and no end, but deep inside is the heart that can never be taken away!
