Each year the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys sponsors a luncheon and recognition for Unsung Heroes from non-profit organizations throughout the Keys.
Greta Philips-Ford is our St Paul's Unsung Hero for 2024. Greta is super-organized, super fun, and, apparently, solar-powered. Her can-do attitude and remarkable energy have seen an amazing number of long-deferred projects through to completion since her first term as Junior Warden from 2020-2023. After the required year off between vestry terms, Greta was re-elected to the vestry at the January 28 St Paul's annual meeting. Promptly thereafter, as indicated by the parish bylaws, the rest of the vestry members present unanimously elected her Junior Warden once more.
As we move forward with Kipany House restoration, engineering study of the church building, and, before too long, restoration of the church building, Greta is in a leading role, not to mention her work on the ABC Sale, Christmas Bazaar, Shrove Tuesday Pancakes, Easter Day brunch, near weekly service on the altar, serving on the openers and closers rota and as Cherry and Watson Fund trustee, and coordinating the Saturday morning volunteers.
Please join me in congratulating Greta as she receives this well-deserved recognition. Together we will all keep pushing the ball down the field.
