special events committee
volunteer since 2013
Ruth Turner was a long-time supporter of Good Mews before she became an “official” volunteer in 2013. Because of her busy work schedule, Ruth joined the Fundraising committee (now called Special Events) which allowed her to do a lot of behind-the-scenes work. Ruth didn’t stay in the background for long though; she quickly became an in instrumental part of the Meowiday Gift Market, Spring Flea Market, and annual silent auction gala – which she has co-chaired for 4 years.
After retiring in November 2015, Ruth took over as the Special Events Committee Chair and also joined Clean & Feed. Ruth is quite the seamstress and hand-made more than 65 beautiful masks for the Meowsquerade Ball fundraiser. On behalf of the kitties – including her beloved Patriot – please join us in thanking Ruth for dedicating so much of her time and talents to Good Mews!
Each month, one of our volunteers will be honored with a spotlight
