She is the receptionist at the Queen Anne’s County Visitors Center and is active with the Kent Island Lions Club, Kent Island Elks, and the Terrapin Grove Resident Association.
“The directors and I are pleased to welcome these talented leaders as new colleagues on the Board,” said President Cindy Bach. “These accomplished people will add significant value to our organization, drawing from their experience in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.” Bach continued, saying, “It truly takes all of us to make a difference. I look forward to the additional insight that these Board members will offer our team as we strive to serve even more seniors in Queen Anne’s County.”
QA@H is a caring community of seniors who help each other stay safe, healthy, connected, and independent at home. Its mission is to help seniors thrive at home which addresses the number one fear that senior citizens have: “What if I can’t stay in my own home?” Members assist each other with rides to appointments and household chores, among other things. QA@H arranges social activities such as coffee meet-ups, happy hours, and outdoor adventures as well as informational seminars where experts present topics relevant to seniors.
