Goldie B. Floberg Board members retire
The Goldie B. Floberg Center Board met Thursday evening, Jan. 23, to honor and say goodbye to two amazing board members, Bonnie Moore and Georganne Eggers. The Goldie B. Floberg Center is extremely thankful for everything these two members have done for the individuals served and the agency as a whole.
Moore joined the Floberg Center’s board in 1996 following the tradition of her father, George A. Palmer, who served many years as a member. Moore has held many positions on the board, including assistant secretary, vice chairman and chairman. With her reality experience, she helped aid the center in accomplishing their mission to move the people served from the center into group homes in the community.
Eggers was introduced to the Floberg Center as a child when she would accompany her mother, who served as a board member to the center on Kent Street. In 1967, Eggers joined the board and became the president in 1976. Eggers also served as the board secretary, vice president and chairman of several committees. She lives and breathes the Floberg mission.
The Goldie B. Floberg Center is grateful to both these board members for their amazing support and service through the years.
