Sandy Mazurek - 2018 Volunteer of the Year
Our 2018 Volunteer of the Year has only volunteered with us for the past seven years, but with the amount of work she does for it, it feels like she's been with us much longer! She carries herself with self-assuredness, knowledge and respect for our organization that would typically come from having been a part of something for decades. Her curiosity about Milwaukee Irish Fest (and later CelticMKE) began during her sessions with the Irish Song Circle at O'Donoghue's Irish Pub.
Over the years, she has been found sorting through old files and helping us become more organized through meticulous note-taking, spreadsheets and charts. She'll jump in to do whatever is needed, no matter how seemingly small the task, always keeping the best interests of the organization at the forefront of her mind. She's counted each and every piece of supply inventory we have in this building; she helps take care of our office building, from kitchen tasks to beverage stocking.
Recently, she's been helping with our new sponsorship platform, tackling contracts, deposits, and more to ensure that we're taking care of our various relationships! She's also in charge of the enormous, tedious task of printing up every single badge for the volunteers at the festival! In truth, Sandy performs so many tasks for us, both big and small, that we can't even begin to try to list them all here. She keeps us functioning! We're so grateful to Sandy for her dedication and bright personality. She's most certainly struck a chord in our organization, so we're delighted to congratulate this wonderful woman on this much deserved recognition!
