We’re excited to announce that the March Volunteer of the Month is Marilyn Traver, a member of our Office Volunteer team. Last month, Marilyn completed her first full year of volunteer service with the agency, contributing over 160 hours of her time and energy. Even in the coldest weather Marilyn makes the trip to our office and is always ready to take on any task we have for her.

Marilyn comes from Auburn, NY, but moved to Rochester twenty years ago when she came to attend Monroe Community College. Upon graduation she worked for more than ten years as a sous-chef. She is a sci-fi and fantasy fan, and her favorite character is Supergirl. Marilyn’s work with the Gay Alliance ranges from office work like stuffing envelopes to making entries into our database. She is always ready to cover other shifts for her fellow volunteers when they can’t make it in. Outside the office, Marilyn has joined the organizing committee for our Lick Events Day Party Sundays where she has played an active role in crafting new events.

We are deeply grateful to Marilyn Traver for the spirit and life that she brings to the Gay Alliance and are thrilled to honor her as Volunteer of the Month for March.
