Marcia’s first experiences with fairs were when she was growing up, entering items into the Waterville fair and working at the fair with her grandmother at the Wheat Wives booth. Marcia then participated for numerous years, helping her grandmother at the fair. Over the years, she has been involved in various community organizations and volunteered much of her time.
Marcia has been involved with Relay for Life for six years, dedicating time and energy to the events in our community. After all of that, she said yes when asked to join the Wenatchee Central Lions back in 2010, which has given her another avenue to be involved in the community. In 2015, Marcia stepped up as secretary, a role she continues to fill today. She has participated in numerous volunteer activities in the Lions.
In 2010, she started volunteering at the Chelan County Fair by selling and taking tickets. After a few years of selling and taking tickets she became a team captain for certain days during the fair. Now she does the scheduling and is the captain for the fair, working numerous shifts and most every fair day. This is one of her favorite events that she participates in as a Lion.
Marcia has received Lion of the Year and the Melvin Jones Award from the Wenatchee Central Lions as well as a few other awards during her time as secretary. She prefers to be the behind-the-scenes person but appreciates this honor.
