June 2020 was the passing of the rose ceremony. Pictured Katie Johnson-President, Barbara Egr-Vice President, Judy Freeland-Secretary and Jo Anne Nielsen-Treasurer. We welcome the new Executive Board (2020-2021), Barbara Egr-President, Sherry Reese-Vice President, Linda Leary-Secretary and Jo Anne Nielsen-Treasurer! During her presidency, Katie Johnson totally appreciated each member who was on the OAI Board. These volunteer positions are each an important cog in the wheel that makes this organization successful. The passing of the gavel to Barbara Egr will make for a smooth transition during this bumpy COVID road!
At the installation of officers, two members were awarded “The Extra Mile Award” by Katie Johnson. Susan Stevens, a past Vice President, manages the OAI Website, co-chairs the Membership Committee, handles the email communications, is on the Cookbook Committee, has published the rosters and has provided other services and advice. She willingly fills many needs of OAI without complaint. During COVID, there were many times Susan sent out blanket emails each time we had to cancel or postpone an event.
Jo Anne Nielsen, a past vice president and president, Hostess Committee, then and now co-chair of the Membership Committee, since 2001 has been on the ANAC Committee, Newsletter, Treasurer (Executive Board), assisted with art shows, published numerous rosters and is a wealth of information and help for anyone with questions.
