Who Are the New Jubilee! Board Members?
…Welcome Bill, Catherine, Pam, Molly
Four Jubilants began their three-year term on the Jubilee! Board of Directors on July 1st.  They are Bill Byrne, Catherine Cope, Pam Garrett and Molly Pritchard. They bring a world of experience both inside and outside of Jubilee!.  

In previous issues we introduced Bill Byrne, Catherine Cope and Pam Garrett.  In this issue, we will be featuring Molly Pritchard.  When asked about the talent/skills she would bring to the Board, Molly said, “I have a positive approach to most life issues—lots of energy, compassion and desire to make the world a better place. I am younger than some board members and hope that I can offer my perspective to get younger families involved and connected in Jubilee!”  Molly stated that “my husband and I began attending Jubilee! about 14 years ago. Both of our sons have been blessed by Howard and have participated in the Nurture Program. I am beyond thankful for our Community and the approach to religion that it brings to our family.”
