New 20-30 Club will attend to needs of children

by Heidi Alder

No going back now. The Active 20-30 Club for women in Carson Valley has offically been chartered, with the international president-elect present and all.

The 12 members, including seven officers, are now part of the national 20-30 organization.

“It’s a small group,” President Kristina Wulfing said. “People come to us through word of mouth. If we did hard-core recruiting, there would be an overwhelming response of people who would want to join.”

20-30 is a service club for women ages 21-39 that raises money for children in the community.

Other officers include Karyn Hartz, vice president; Becky Himmelrick, secretary; Stacie Hunter, treasurer; Tracey Wagner, sergeant at arms (fine master); Felicia Albert and Kelly Ryder, directors.

There were a lot of people representing many areas at the chartering, which was held at the Valley View Ranch.

Members from California, Arizona and Canada, the entire national board of officers and international president-elect Nick Grant of the Carson Valley active 20-30 Club, a men’s group, were there, said Wulfing.

The group has already planned a garage sale/kid’s gear swap to raise money for children. Which children has not been decided yet.

“We’re researching and trying to get children’s programs to present to us to choose which one we’ll donate to,” Wulfing said.

They have decided to be mentors for the Pro-Teen and Teens with a Future programs.

“The biggest reason I joined is to give back to the community. All the money stays here and goes to kids,” Wulfing said. “It’s also a good way to meet new people, and also provide them with the opportunity to give back to the community.”
