Wendy Thompson

September 2017

Wendy Thompson has been volunteering for BTG for 10 years.  She started at the 1st W4W by organizing a youth group to participate and has never stopped.  Her main gift is her ability to be willing to try anything and she ends up doing it well.  She is slowly un-cluttering my life and so much more.  Thank you, Wendy!

A new group to the the W4W  was the
