Carolyn Welch, Treasurer
I have been the Chief Financial Officer for North Coast Opportunities, Inc. for over seven years. I have volunteered at the Center for five years. My first event was helping at the community dinners and then I was a 'regular' at the fruit cutting station for the monthly Saturday Breakfast. I have also helped with the Thanksgiving dinner preparation for the last four years. This tradition has been serving the community for nine years and it is fun to work with so many other volunteers that make this event happen. I am interested in spreading the word about the Center and its programs and how people can access what is available. I have served on the board for a year now and have a better understanding of how this organization benefits the community.

I just spent 30 years supporting the Ukiah Senior Center through my work at the Mendocino Transit Authority. After retirement, I decided to continue my support in a different way—by becoming a Senior Center board member. I support the Senior Center because they are such an important part of the lives of seniors in our valley.
