Rich and Judy have made tremendous contributions to the Town of Alderson and the Alderson area.
Rich is active in the Alderson Ministerial Association which has just completed the renovation of their new (to them) building to house the Thrift Shop and more. He uses his talents as a ‘chef’ to support Alderson Main Street by cooking a Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner as a fund raiser; helping organize and cooking for the Alderson Community Picnic; cooking a gourmet dinner as a fund raiser for the Greenbrier Historical Society; preparing food for the Communities in Schools fundraiser; cooking dinner for the winner of the Alderson Main Street Raffle and 5 friends; and so much more.
Judy has leadership roles as president of Alderson Main Street and chair of the Alderson Library Board. She can speak to the media or serve at a tea with equal equanimity. She shows her support by attending many functions related to tourism and economic development. The raffle by Alderson Main Street is its largest fundraiser; was her idea; and she coordinates it.
When new people move into the community, you just pray that they are like Rich and Judy! They step in where they can help and listen to the issues and problems before suggesting actions. They have broad interests and care about everyone. Whether it is time or treasure, they invest in our town and we are so much the better for it.
