Shirley Blalock, First Church bookkeeper, has shared her considerable skills with First Church for over 12 years and is retiring from her position. She has been our dependable, exacting, and pleasant “money-keeper.” We will be honoring Shirley for her many years of service on Sunday, January 6, 2013 during Coffee Hour in Collins Hall. If you would like to leave a card and/or a monetary gift expressing your appreciation for Shirley’s many years of dedicated service, drop it by the church office.
Shirley has always gone above her normal duties and has been an integral part of our church office. “Shirley will be missed after she retires. She has always been an asset on the church staff and was always flexible and knowledgeable in her job,” says Christine Meyer, Church Administrator. Many will miss Shirley’s smile and pleasant greeting in the office, but she will be among us, worshipping and participating in the service opportunities at First Church. Shirley was elected as the Treasurer of UMW this past year and will continue to participate and serve. We are so pleased that we can have this opportunity on January 6th to formally thank her for a job well done!
