Thank you to all who helped ring the bell for the Salvation Army!

Posted 12/06/17 by Kevin Platz and filed under:

To all the volunteers who showed up to ring the Salvation Army bells for REALTOR RING DAY on 12/1/2018….

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Though Friday was probably one of the warmest days to be outside, it still takes the effort to show up. We look forward to doing this again next year with better planning and collaboration.

Our value as agents extends way beyond our services in real estate transactions. We should be community stewards for all. If you missed this service opportunity, stay tuned as there are more to come.

Thank you – Bob Schell – Chad Hawker, Steve Schroeder, Troy Munger, Victoria Torres, Crystal Sheeley, Curt Cleveland, Will Brandt, Stephannie McHale, Mary Jo and Roger Carlson, Tracy Whitford, Matthew Waddell, Kayla McPherson, Maryann Petesich, Nick Polum, Ann Roushar, Tappi Hughes, Lena Gilbert, Kyle Kloft, Jill Hartke, Penny Novak, Kathleen Klarenbeek, Jessica Tiernan, Bonnie Tiernan, Christine Diers, Dan Hess, Patty Reed, Bob Lynch, Dan Hess, Bob Hackney, Lana Baldus, Jonathan Doerrfeld, Cody Meyer, Jenn Goerdt, Jennifer Shelton, Gary Sweet, Maureen Bertelsen, Emmaleigh Buck, Jess Dougherty, Tara Clayberg, Rachel Freeman, Trish Samuelson. 📣📣📣
