HBA Chicago-Northern Suburbs is pleased to announce our May Volunteer of the Month is Julie Culleton.
When asked to share her experience as an HBA volunteer, Julie wrote: "I’m honored to be recognized as Volunteer of the Month. I’m a strong believer in supporting institutions I find valuable and I have found it so rewarding to contribute my time and talents to the HBA. One of my favorite HBA events was a wine and painting evening. I can barely draw a stick figure and I walked into the event thinking I would produce something like a toddler’s finger painting. By the end of the event I had painted a recognizable tree on a hill and as usual, had a great time with my HBA friends. The event was also an analogy for my experience volunteering with the HBA. You may enter a situation wondering if you can do something. With the support of fabulous people, you get it done and emerge with a sense of accomplishment, having tackled something new and maybe even uncovered unknown skills."
