New MCCM Board Members

The Board of Directors of MCCM is pleased to welcome three new board members: Sherry Barnett, Judy Blevins, and Bruce Johnson.

Each of these new board members works as a volunteer for the Food Bank and/or Good Neighbors Programs so they are familiar with the operation of these programs. In addition, each bring years of experience in a variety of business endeavors. In a future edition of this newsletter we hope to highlight each member.

Welcome Sherry, Judy and Bruce!
