The Bonsall Woman’s Club (BWC) March meeting is a special time – not just for introducing the Volunteer of the Year award but announcing the winners in the Palomar Art Festival.
This year’s Volunteer of the Year, Bev York, has heart and so much more. She has given freely of her time, over 240 Volunteer hours in calendar year 2018.
Bev joined the BWC in 2011 and immediately began serving in the all-important position as 3rd Vice President-Programs. In subsequent years she served as 1st Vice President/Dean of Chairmen, and the Club’s Parliamentarian. She graciously accepted when the Palomar District, which is part of the California and General Federation of Women’s Clubs, asked for her help to serve on their Board. She is currently serving as the District’s 1st Vice President-Dean of Chairmen. Helping is her nature. Often, she is quietly working in the background to make sure the job gets done in any area where she has an expertise. The results of any of her club involvement can best be described as quality work from a quality lady.
The following poem is the ultimate description of The BWC’s Volunteer of the Year Awardee:
Valuable is the work you do
Outstanding in how you always come through.
Loyal, sincere, and full of good cheer
Untiring in your efforts throughout the year.
Notable are the contributions you make
Trustworthy in every project you take.
Eager to reach your every goal
Effective in the way you fulfill your role.
Ready with a smile like a shining star
Special and wonderful — that’s what you are!
When Bev’s announcement was made to the general membership, she received a much-deserved standing ovation.
