Q&A with Ann

What made you want to be a part of Operation Round Up?I was at the annual meeting when this program was announced. I was so excited! What a great idea! I wanted to do some community service and this sounded perfect! After the meeting I found Emily and asked her how I can sign up!

What have you enjoyed most about being on the Operation Round Up board? “Honestly, it was the people on the board. I didn’t know anyone on the board when we all got started, but they are all very caring people who want the best for their community and Marshall County. They are truly an amazing group, and I am so honored to have served with them!”

What would you like people to know about Operation Round Up? “The money entrusted to ORU is a true blessing from each and every one of the REMC members! The number of people touched by this generosity is absolutely amazing! We are truly a blessed community that strives to help fellow community members. If we all give a little, we all benefit a lot! I have never been involved in such a wonderful community with such caring individuals. ORU has done Marshall County proud! Keep up the good work, and I hope all REMC members will continue to round up to help our fellow Marshall County citizens. It truly shows!”
