I came with a group of volunteers from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbia less than 10 years ago and have been volunteering several times a year since. It’s simply an inclusive, accepting, positive place in a beautiful inspiring physical setting. I have attended our annual church retreat twice. I’ve seen so many interesting programs scheduled but haven’t actually attended.

I want to assist in decreasing risk for The Mountain by continuing to improve maintenance and safety; assess what will keep guests returning; and determine how to make more people aware of The Mountain.

It’s important to me to spend time with family and friends; continue to learn about anything/everything; and expand my spiritual exploration.

I believe that we are all responsible for helping to improve people’s lives—whether through our gifts, or just consciously valuing and caring for everyone we meet.
