Jeaune Allard has been a Women’s City Club member since November 2015. She enjoys the vibrant and interesting programs, community engagement, social activities, Mah Jongg, and, most of all, the delightful members. “It’s rewarding to develop friendships with a large group of women who value our WCC community.”
She has served on several WCC committees over the years and feels that it is a wonderful way to deepen friendships and give back to the club. She is also a member of the WCC board. “Being on the board has given me the opportunity to appreciate the numerous efforts made by board members enhancing and strengthening our club.” Jeaune was involved in planning our most recent Annual Meeting, the 95th! The Annual Meeting celebrates accomplishments over the past year, honors our past presidents, long-time members, and outgoing board members, and gives members time for fun and fellowship. Jeaune arranged our entertainment for the event, securing soprano, Elizabeth Barry and pianist, Todd Wilke. This year was very special because we awarded the first Hazel Whitaker Vandenberg Award to a Union High School junior. “It was fun and gratifying to help plan our 95th annual meeting at Kent Country Club.”
Jeaune and her husband Tim share a passion for service, family and fun! They enjoy traveling, boating, biking, and skiing. They have three married children, seven grandchildren and delight in family time together.
As a past special education principal, she supported the White Cane program leading her to become a member of the GR Lions Club. She volunteers weekly at the vision center and recently went on a service trip bringing eyeglasses to children in Jamaica. Other service activities include hiking 21 miles in one day on the North Country trail raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She plans to hike again this September.
“I am excited to continue serving on the board this year and help WCC grow.” Thank you Jeaune! The Women’s City Club is grateful for your time and talents!
