Amanda Bylsma

Amanda BylsmaIt is with a heavy heart that we announce that one of our long-time volunteers, Amanda Bylsma, has passed away. She always brightened every room she was in, and her high energy will be missed.

Some of you may have been aware that Amanda was our pitch appointments coordinator.  A previous pitch coordinator, Bonnie Hagan, has stepped up to help ease the loss by ensuring that pitch appointments will continue as planned.
