Wellness. Quality of Life.
My name is Leah Tidey and I am running for a second term on the Yarnell Regional Community Center Board of Directors. My husband, Chuck, and I moved to Yarnell in 2007. After long careers and living from the West Coast to the East Coast, we have settled down and now call Yarnell home. I have been a volunteer at the Yarnell Regional Community Center since 2011, beginning as a volunteer in the kitchen. I coordinate the monthly YRCC Newsletter and, in collaboration with Kurt Florman, help produce the Weaver Mountains Community Calendar. I have been on the YRCC Board for two years and as Secretary for six months and hope to continue to be a part of this thriving, much needed asset to the Weaver Mountains' communities as we press forward and expand our regional goals. I am also actively involved in the Yarnell Community Garden Project and the Yarnell Fire Auxiliary.
Being on the Board of directors this last term, I feel that I have learned many things and have added to the betterment of our Community Center. My successful run for the Honorary Mayor for the benefit of Meals on Wheels is one example. I believe I have more to give. Therefore I humbly ask for your vote to re-elect me to be one of your board members for our Community Center
I have served two terms on the Board for the Community Center, filling roles of Secretary, Treasurer and Vice-President. During my "year off" I helped to secure the four-year contract with NACOG, developed and expanded the Club Yarnell program with the assistance of Jerry Florman, served as campaign chair for Steve Spence's successful campaign for Honorary Mayor, handled the paperwork for the legal name change of the Center, filled in as back-up for Executive Director Kim Lytle on occasional days off, and wrote many of the Yellow Sheet articles about the Center on Kim's behalf. And of course, I eat and shop regularly to the Center! I love the Center and its amazing cadre of volunteers that make it all happen, and appreciate the tremendous work of the Board. I would like to serve again and help to keep the momentum of outstanding progress and achievement moving forward.
Continuing to serve our community is my goal in Yarnell, having helped recovery/counseling efforts over the last four years. As a Walnut Grover, the Community Center board is a GREAT way to link up and serve our regional communities.
