NeighborWorks Great Falls held their public Annual Meeting on April 29th, opening their doors to allow attendees to join either in person or by Zoom. During the event, we heard from several voices at NeighborWorks Great Falls, including Steve King (Board Chair), Sherrie Arey (Executive Director), and Sean Sturges (Board Vice-Present). These individuals reviewed the work NeighborWorks accomplished in 2020, welcomed back re-elected board members, and inducted five new board members: Pam Blackwell with Benefis Health System, Troy Lane, a resident of NeighborWorks’ target neighborhood, Healy Lyons with KRTV, Kristi Pollard with US Bank, and Carley Tuss, former Registered Nurse and currently with St. Vincent de Paul Society.
NeighborWorks Great Falls also honored two outstanding retiring board members, Jim Weber and Fritz Seitz. Jim Weber served on the NeighborWorks Board of Directors for 32 years, serving two terms as Board President and as a resident of NeighborWorks’ target neighborhood. Fritz served on the board for 25 years after purchasing his own home through NeighborWorks, formerly known as Neighborhood Housing Services. NeighborWorks dedicated floor plans in honor of both retirees - "The Fritz Plan" and "The Weber Plan." Additionally, Arey thanked donors, Preferred Partners, and all those who make their work possible.
NeighborWorks Great Falls continues to build strong neighborhoods, create successful homeowners, and develop and promote quality, affordable housing in Cascade County.
