We were a wee bit tardy in honoring our stellar WMNF Volunteers for 2018/2019, but a party was held on 8/18/19 at the Allendale United Methodist Church.
WMNF wishes to thank these sponsors & partners for their generous contributions to this event and many other station functions: The Hub Bar donated the adult beverages, RED MESA Restaurant Family (The original 4th Street location, downtown Cantina & Mercado, who made the food for the party), Harvey’s 4th Street Grill, Craft Kafé, Cider Press Café… Carole Shelton, Barbara Lewis, Bert Shelor & Patti Marsters, who made the centerpieces, everyone who prepared and brought a sweet treat to share… And the helpers who set up, picked up and served food & beverages, and cleaned up ~ You ROCK!
We especially wish to extend our sincere appreciation to Beth Jones, Chris Fulmer & Pastor Andy Oliver from the Allendale United Methodist Church for allowing us to hold this party in your Family Life Center. You are truly “WMNFers” at heart…!!
We couldn’t be here without the plethora of people who host music shows and create news programming, assist programmers, run the studio boards, engineer live music, film and video stream programs, transcribe content for the website, prepare or pick up food and volunteer at Marathons and in our library, assist the Administrative and Operations staff, (especially the “Green Team” garden crew), serve on our Board of Directors, Volunteer Committee and other committees, run our Development events and benefit concerts, help at outreach events in the community, tell friends and family about WMNF…Not to mention listening, donating money and giving feedback to the DJs! The list is amazing when you really think about all it takes to keep our station strong and vital. It truly boils down to you and You and YOU… Thanks so much!
