Thank-you, Linda Freund
On Sunday afternoon, December 11, community leaders and Co-Op volunteers and supporters gathered at 550 Trackside in downtown Lawrenceville to say thank you to Co-Op director Linda Freund, who is retiring at year-end 2016. Linda served as director for 16 years, guiding the ministry through many changes while always keeping the focus on what God was calling the Co-Op to be and do. Many thanks to Special Kneads and Treats for donating an abundance of cupcakes for this celebratory event, and to McKendree United Methodist Church for providing additional food items. Many of those who were able to attend are pictured in the accompanying slide show (below). For even more pictures, click HERE.
A few days prior to this reception, Linda was also honored by the Gwinnett Coalition for Health & Human Services, which awarded her a certificate of appreciation for her “years of faithful and committed service in our Gwinnett County community.” Pictured below are Ellen Gerstein (Executive Director, Gwinnett Coalition), Linda Freund, and Suzy Bus (Director, Gwinnett Helpline).
