This month we’d like to shine the spotlite on a Gloria Peterson. Gloria is a very familiar face around here, having been a member for almost 19 years. After joining our Wii Bowling program Wii Bowling, she began helping out as well. When she comes to special events and Koffee Klub, she volunteers to help set things up, serve, and clean up. Gloria also comes in to help us out with bulk mail, putting in inserts, and putting on labels on hundreds of newsletters. When not bowling or helping out she likes coming to our special events and Koffee Klub, and occasionally likes playing bingo and shuffleboard. Originally from Rosalie, Nebraska, she came out to the area with her husband, Larry, who was in the Air Force. First she got to travel the world and the country, before they got stationed at Norton. She was a stay at home mom, not only watching her 3 kids, but other mom’s kids so those moms could work. Now she has 4 grandkids, five great-grandkids, not counting all those other “kids” she took care off. And how she helps to take care of us. Thanks Gloria.
