Volunteer Voice

Karen Randall served on the Lex-Ham Community Council from 2008-2012.  She served as a board member, as secretary and as president.  Here’s what she said about her time on the council:
“In some organizations, one person keeps the momentum going, then that person leaves and the group fades away. This isn’t true with Lex-Ham. The leadership has been passed along successfully as directors complete terms and others step up. I appreciated living in a neighborhood that comes together as a community and decided it was my turn to help out. The relationships we grow at Lex-Ham events and National Night Out lead to friendships and support throughout the year and I was happy to help ensure this continues.
I was on the Council when a second parking lot was proposed for Pizza Luce, and later a special needs ball diamond for Dunning Park. Both of these brought out strong feelings and it was rewarding to provide a forum where perspectives could be heard. I also learned a lot about how local government works.”
