Earlier this year Sean Snyder nominated two RSVP volunteers (Deb Tekippe and Carol Hemesath) for the Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. They were chosen as recipients last week. Deb and Carol assist Sean Snyder (Winneshiek County Emergency Management) often. Sean Snyder nominated them for the December 15, 2021 power outage assist here in Decorah. Deb and Carol assisted Winneshiek County Emergency Management with opening a warming shelter for anyone in need. Both continue to assist me with creating and developing plans. Volunteer management and shelter and donations management are two of our latest projects to date.
