Membership Chair / Alto
Eileen grew up in the Northeast and wound up in the Southwest (blame a yen for adventure and an ex-boyfriend with a disreputable Chevy van that only made it one way across the country).
Thirty years later, she finally bought a pair of cowboy boots without feeling (too much) like a phony. In the interim, she acquired a husband and two children.
She majored rather ineffectually in English and has worked as a liquor store clerk, a cosmetics sales lady at a fancy department store, a bank teller, a strawberry picker (10¢ per pint), a fabric store clerk, a self-employed seamstress, a commercial loan processor, a line worker in a thermometer factory, a secretary, a stay-at-home mom, a librarian, a waitress, a school lunch lady, and a career counselor, where she led by example.
The Larimer Chorale’s Membership Chair, a volunteer position, makes members feel welcome, answers their questions, schedules auditions and re-audiitons, maintains records, sends newsletters, and keeps channels of communication open.
