I have been a member of the Friends of MacKenzie for at least ten years. I started my involvement in the Maple Education program in 2018 when I assisted with the finishing process and shadowed guides. I currently serve as a guide and an interpreter for the Finishing process. I am also currently treasurer for the Friends of MacKenzie.
My membership was encouraged by Sue Brockel, who also encouraged me to join the Board. I became interested in the Maple program when my older grandson was in fourth grade at Pardeeville Elementary School and participated in the program.
