Merilou Gonzales

Volunteer of the Year-2016

If you have also been volunteering with the Striders, there is a very good chance that you have been contacted by a lady who spearheads the "Volunteer Captain" position for many of our events.  Ms. Merilou Gonzales the name of the woman who always seems to be smiling.  Her positivity and passion for helping others are certainly only a couple of the postitive attributes that she brings to the Strider organization and to everyone around her.  Sometimes we get tired just watching her!  Merilou has been assisting wherever needed for years and it's one of the reasons she was named "Volunteer of the Year" for 2016.  The next time you see Marilou, let her know you'll be willing to make her job easier by offering to volunteer yourself.  After all, volunteers like Merilou are what keeps this Club special.
