MYB Presents Spirit, Service Awards for Meritorious Service
Marblehead Youth Badminton celebrated some of its long-standing volunteers, who have given their time and expertise to help run the sports organization behind the scenes this spring. The honorees included Jennie Aspinall, David Deutsch, Marion Higgins and Leanne Torrie.
The Dee Colcord Spirit Award was created to recognize MYB’s former president (2005-10) for generating a spirit of fun, dedication and fairness in the highly competitive sport of badminton. Each year, recipients are chosen from the entire organization that includes the players to volunteers. Last month, Joan Cayen the president of MYB, presented the Award to Aspinall, Higgins, and Torrie.
Volunteers! Great Benefits to MYB Volunteerism!
If you have been involved with MYB for any length of time, you already know that we think of ourselves as a small family. Nick, our fearless coach is our dad, the Board of Directors are the aunts and uncles, the player’s parents are the brothers and sisters and the players are all of our kids. There aren’t that many of us, but we are all bound together by our love of and dedication to badminton. Many people commit their time and energy to MYB but in the past few years, four people in particular have worked tirelessly behind the scenes so MYB could run seamlessly. The most amazing thing about this is that three of them have not had children in the program for years, and one of them never had a child in the program at all! We wish to offer our sincerest thanks to Leanne Torrie, Marion Higgins, Marnie Deutsch and Jennie Aspinall for their years of hard work and dedication to MYB. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!
Since we all know it takes a village to raise a child, it is the same with our organization. It takes all of us to keep this great organization going and we need your help. Since some of this old guard is moving on to other things, we need others to step into their shoes. We are in immediate need of someone to help us with our finances. It involves a monthly payroll (just one employee!), some banking activities and tax returns. If you have an interest, please contact Board of Directors President, Joan Cayen at email@example.com. Also, please contact her if you are interested in helping out in any other capacity. There are many special events and projects where help is greatly appreciated.
