“One of the special things we want to celebrate at this year is that First National Bank has achieved a significant milestone. According to our records, they have had 100 percent participation in the United Way campaigns for 25 years. Not only do they support the Seward County United Way with office space but they have increased their giving every year and have now achieved a remarkable 25 year record,” said Kay Burtzloff, executive director of the Seward County United Way. “We plan to honor them with a special award at this year’s celebration.”
Burtzloff also noted that this will be her last campaign celebration event as well as her last event as the director of the local United Way. “As we have announced before, I will be leaving the United Way as soon as we have hired the next director. I have loved being the director for the last 14 years, but I will be moving on to some new challenges. I will still be in the community but I think United Way will benefit from some fresh leadership.”
During the celebration, the final campaign total and the Volunteer of the Year will be announced and volunteers and donors will be recognized. At the annual meeting, new Seward County United Way Board of Director members and officers are elected. Nominations may be made from the floor. “According to our by-laws, all donors, agencies and volunteers have a right to vote on the board members,” Burtzloff said.
