Each year for the last seven years the MSCC Food Pantry has had a “Cans for a Cause” Food Drive Challenge, and each year you have all contributed generously. And once again you have more than exceeded our goal, and we could not be more thankful to all of you for everything that you did.
In an uncertain year you went above and beyond to help us give the gift of food to those in our community in need. And once again we are greatly humbled and blessed by the generous outpouring of love from all of you! Individuals, businesses and organizations donated the gift of food and the gift of money. You challenged your co-workers, your customers and your vendors, all to help others.
Your gifts not only helped us provide staples, but also ingredients for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for our friends and neighbors in need.
Thank you so very much for caring so deeply and for helping us to help others in the community in which we live and work.
The Mt. Sterling Community Center Board of Directors would like for you to meet Megan Witteman. Megan is the interim Director for the Community Center. Megan will be working with the current Director, Annie Tomlinson, who will be retiring at the end of November. The Board of Directors thanks Annie for her years of service and wishes her all the best in her retirement.
Megan Witteman is a lifelong member of the Mt Sterling Community. Megan grew up swimming at the Sterling pool, playing softball behind the center and working at Rapp’s Hardware. Both of Megan’s grandmothers are or have been volunteers at the Community Center.
Megan is a graduate of Madison Plains High School along with two sisters and her parents Tim and Luana Barker. Megan has a 15 year old daughter who is very active in volleyball and 4-H. Having lived out of Madison County for several years, Megan and her boyfriend Rick of five years, along with his son Trenten and her daughter Morgan are going to be building their new home outside of Mt. Sterling.
Prior to accepting the position as Director at the Community Center, Megan held positions on the Chamber Board and the YMCA Board in Grove City where she recently moved from. Organizing and attending events, supporting local initiatives, and helping the community were some of the highlights that Megan was responsible for while she held those positions.
The Board of Directors welcomes Megan to our staff. We look forward to working with her on maintaining our programs and hope to implement some new ideas as well.
