Thank you Louise, Ann & Robin!
As a small non-profit, Sustainable Saratoga relies on our board members to oversee the program committees. We have been fortunate over the years to have a passionate group of dedicated volunteers to fulfill this role. The terms of three amazing members came to an end this year, though they will all continue to serve on committees.
Louise Golub (on left) served as Sustainable Saratoga’s treasurer and as a co-chair of our Climate and Energy Committee. She also volunteers her time on our Zero Waste Committee. Louise has spent decades working toward a zero waste lifestyle and is an enthusiastic cyclist and composter. Thank you, Louise. We are grateful for your service to this organization and community.
Ann Samuelson (middle image) co-chaired our Zero Waste Committee for the past few years and is the mastermind who keeps us on task every year as we plan Saratoga Recycles Day — a role she will continue to play in 2022. Ann also stepped up to serve as our treasurer this past year. Thank you, Ann! We are indebted to you for your dedication to our mission.
Robin Ambrosino (on right) chaired our Community Outreach and Development Committee, spearheading our fundraising efforts and consulting on marketing and outreach strategy. Robin also volunteers on our Zero Waste Committee. You have probably seen her keeping traffic flowing at Saratoga Recycles Day. Thank you, Robin. We are privileged to work with you.
