The New Year of 2021 brings about some changes within the Greater Berlin Business and Professional Association. As you know, the terms for all of our Executive Officers expired December 31, 2020. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new officers:
President: Betty Velie, Marie Fleche Memorial Library
Vice President: Johnnye Ervin, Accel Promotions
Treasurer: Carolyn Lutz, Chick-fil-A
Secretary: Kathleen Betz, ParaPlusTyping and Notary
Joe Hoffmann, the GBBPA Treasurer for several years, asked not to be considered for re-election. Joe has been an integral member of our organization not only as an officer, but endless days spent volunteering on our various projects including Christmas decorations, 4th of July and our annual Fall Festival. There are not enough words to articulate our gratitude and appreciation for everything he has done throughout the years.
Kevin Lyons, GBBPA Secretary, also declined to continue in this position. As most of you know, aside from Bunnycakes, Kevin is still working as a full-time nurse at Virtua in Marlton. Kevin has been working 7 days a week, particularly during the height and new surge of COVID. In addition to his executive position, he was also co-chair of our 2019 Fall Festival…oftentimes, my voice! We spent many hours working together on general GBBPA correspondence and he kept me laughing as we prepared for the 2019 4th of July parade. Thank you for everything and stay well my friend!!
