Advisory board volunteers recognized for their serviceThis week, seven citizens representing two county advisory boards received Recognition of Services Awards from the commissioners for their time and dedication in serving residents. The commissioners also appointed two new members and reappointed three members to those same boards.

“We’re extremely grateful for everyone who serves on our advisory boards and volunteers their time to improve services for Weld County residents,” Weld County Chair Steve Moreno said. “At the same time, we’re very excited to appoint new board members who will bring innovative ideas and continue to make Weld County the best it can be for everyone.”

Three members from the Extension Advisory Council were honored for a combined 22 years of service; Robert Grand for eight years of service; Stuart Gebauer for six years of service and David Moore for eight years of service. Members of the Extension Advisory Council assist the CSU extension office on budget decisions and work with the office to ensure its programs are as effective as possible.

Members of the Area Agency on Aging Board were also recognized. Judy Yamaguchi, Willis Kulp, Wayne Wagner, and Kenneth Humphrey each contributed six years of service to the board. Area Agency on Aging board members monitor all programs for older adults and advise the county’s Area Agency on Aging department and the Board of Commissioners on funding services for older adults, including home health care, transportation, legal services, nutrition and more.

The Extension Advisory Council gained an at-large representative as Pat Kindvall was appointed to the council. Member Gail Fiolkoski was also reappointed to the council.
The Area Agency on Aging Board gained one new member in Juliet Fried, while Katherine Swafford and George Heath were each reappointed.
