20-30 club president goes national

The women's Sierra Nevada Active 20-30 Club welcomes a new national president for a job well done.

The women's club is proud of its president, Jennifer (Norms) Norman, who was read in as the third woman to hold the national president position with Active 20-30 United States and Canada, which consists of more than 1,000 members nationwide. Norman was read into her office on June 24 in Scottsdale, Ariz., during the organization's national convention.

"It's a great honor, and I'm looking forward to a busy year," said Norman.

A big part of her responsibilities include extensive travel across the country to visit fellow clubs. Last year, the national president traveled more than 250,000 miles. Norman plans to match that number over the course of her 12-month term.

"My club got me here and I'm happy to represent our nation for such a worthy cause," she said.

The women's club also came home with many awards of outstanding achievement for the year. Jacquie Manoukian walked away with member of the year, which is the highest honor within the organization. Other awards given to the women's club included first place for the following achievements: President of the year - Jennifer Norman; outstanding national project - Winter Wonderland, held by Sierra Nevada in December; outstanding Web page; outstanding mission statement representative - Shannon Johnson; outstanding national liaison - Jessie Wetzel; outstanding secretary - Jacquie Manoukian.

Second place awards included, outstanding public relations - Shannon Johnson; outstanding club - Sierra Nevada No. 730; outstanding club visitations - Sierra Nevada No. 730.

The Sierra Nevada Active 20-30 Club raises money for special needs children within Douglas County throughout the year.

Events such as their spring fashion show make the funds necessary to donate back to the community. Hands on projects such as the Children's Shopping Spree allows the club to take children school shopping. All of the projects are intended for the betterment of the community.

The club is happy with their achievements and hopes other women in the Carson Valley area will get involved.

"We're always looking for new members," said Norman.

The club is hosting a social with wine and appetizers at Barone & Reed Food Co. at 6 p.m. July 20. Everyone is welcome to attend.
