Melissa Wick, our Voter Services Chair and Treasurer, was presented the Service to Mankind Award by League member Betty Bunce and Sertoma Treasurer Rob Gillespie. We were thrilled as they surprised her at the holiday party in December! In accepting the award, Melissa recognized the efforts of all the volunteers who contributed their time, energy and expertise during the 81 voter registration events since April of 2018.
As part of this award, the Sertoma Club of Lawrence awarded $500 to the League in honor of Melissa. She immediately started planning how to use this money to more effectively reach out to voters in our community! The League of Women Voters Lawrence/ Douglas County is so proud to have had over 1100 registrations, 81 events, and 350 volunteer hours over the last eight months.
We thank Melissa and all of our priceless volunteers who work tirelessly in Making Democracy Work!
