We are pleased to announce Missie Jurick
as our Member Spotlight for the month of March!
Missie is an amazing woman and mother, who happens to also be a military spouse. I, like some in this town, do not have an immediate connection to a service man or woman. It is easy to take for granted the peace of mind we are able to have in our daily lives in exchange for the sacrifice made by military families. Missie helps us by keeping them in on our thoughts while supporting other military families, sometimes in the easiest of ways.
For the Ugly Sweater Bike Tour, she had the kids and families make cards thanking service people; and easy, age appropriate way of teaching our kids to share thanks with those working to protect us. This past month, she posted a thought for us all to consider donating person care items for individuals deployed last-minute as a result of current events. At the Women’s Club Welcome Brunch, I overheard her introduce herself and connect with a new Lakers who was also a military wife.
These seemingly small, simple acts can and are making a large impact than even she may realize. She does so much to reach out and support others, when she herself balances life and motherhood.
