With only a small paid staff, the MAC relies heavily on advocates that volunteer their time and energy for it to be successful.
It is their continued drive and support that brings new and unique ideas and approaches to this project.
Periodically, we’ll share a profile on one of our advocates that has gone above and beyond to make the MAC successful.
It is our pleasure to spotlight Sandy Howard as the first, in a long list of individuals that have offered personal knowledge, ingenuity, and leadership skills to make the MAC better. In the latter stages of winter the MAC was very fortunate to have Sandy step up and take on the daunting task of being our Gala Auction Coordinator. It is without a doubt a role that requires a great deal of time and effort to be successful. She embraced this position and went above and beyond the call of duty and was, and is, an invaluable asset to the MAC.
This year the live and silent auctions far exceeded our expectations. Sandy was able to acquire a very diverse, yet appealing number of items that were well received by our Gala attendees. Items included Eagles memorabilia, signed sporting good items, vacation packages, luxury box seats, various artwork, and many other items of interest. This came as no surprise to most who know and work with Sandy.
Sandy is the type of person who always puts others interest in front of her own. She cares deeply about our local community and has always found a way to lend a helping hand. She has done tireless work at Brandenburg United Methodist Church, and has also been an advocate and volunteer for the local chapter of Relay for Life. A mother of two and grandmother of two, she is a wonderful person and valued friend of the Meade Activity Center. We thank her for her contributions to the MAC and the Meade County community.
Please join us in congratulating Sandy on a job well done!
Sandy and her husband, Doug Howard, own and operate the River Ridge Marathon in Brandenburg. They have two children, Barrett and Brittney. They are the proud grandparents of Emma & Abby Howard.
