The day was 20 on 20. May 20th was Mary Belanger’s 20th anniversary having served our church for 20 years. So, during worship on Sunday, May 22nd we recognized our church custodian extraordinaire as an invaluable asset to our building and community as a whole. Following worship, we celebrated this 20th anniversary milestone with a special coffee hour reception that included cake by our amazing cake-lady.
But who is Mary Belanger, really? Well, she’s a rockstar!
Mary’s a wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She’s been married to John for 33 years and together they have 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
Something you may not know about Mary is that she LOVES to workout. On any given day you can see her heading to the gym at 5am to get her workout in before work. And she hops on her bike and takes a ride whenever she can.
Mary says what she loves the most about being part of the church for the last 20 years is the people. The congregation and staff are what makes her work world go round.
Although Mary enjoys church cleaning, she’s less than enthusiastic (like most of us) about doing her personal cleaning at home. But at work or at home, Mary loves working outside in the yard. On any given day in spring, summer, or fall you’ll find her picking up the yard, tending to the flower beds and shrubs or making a statement on her riding lawnmower. Our landscape is as beautiful as it is thanks to Mary’s time, effort, and talent.
Mary says her B&G committee rocks and she couldn’t be happier being part of the team, and that she looks forward to being on the team for another 20 years. We should be so lucky! THANK YOU, Mary for all you do! We LOVE you!
