Get to Know Us: Shannon Baumann 

Back to School Store Committee Member

  

 

Shannon is originally from Oshkosh, WI but moved to Green Bay for college in 2004 and has lived here ever since. She has a husband named Rich, a Schnoodle named Scruffers but does not yet have any kids.

  

In January she became the Events & Marketing Coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeastern Wisconsin. Prior to that, she sold insurance for 3.5 years after graduating from UWGB.

 

Shannon enjoys shopping, reading and participating in a variety of volunteer work. She also likes to try new things, which means she is always looking for new activities to try or fun classes to take.

  

Shannon is currently serving on the Back to School Store committee, and is responsible for setting up the entertainment on the day of the store. In the Fall, she will be a member of the Big Blue Bash Production Committee.

President's Message: Joey Liebmann 

  

  

"Service to a just cause rewards the worker with more real happiness and satisfaction than any other venture of life."

 ~Carrie Chapman Catt~

 

Eighty-one years ago this January, a group of civic minded women united to establish what is now Service League of Green Bay, in order to make a difference in our community. It is an honor to serve as President of Service League for 2013-14!  We take great pride in being an organization of women committed to meeting the physical, educational and emotional needs of the children in Brown County. "Recognized for its pioneering efforts in service to the Children of Brown County, Service League of Green Bay provides a unique opportunity for area women to volunteer their time and talents. Service League values women who demonstrate their commitment to its purpose through efficient teamwork. Service League strives to be sensitive to and supportive of the needs of its members and the children it serves, while fostering a spirit of fun and friendship." This vision statement speaks volumes to the many accomplishments of our members who exemplify what true "Leaders of Women" really are.  I am honored by the opportunity to serve and guide our mission this year.

 

Twenty years ago this August, Service League of Green Bay will complete our largest annual project, The Back to School Store. In 1993, Service League of Green Bay was able to respond to a community need and serve 200 Brown County children at our inaugural Back to School Store. This year, Service League will invite 1,500 students and find nearly 800 volunteers to make our growing Back to School Store a success. Please consider volunteering at our 21st Annual Back to School Store and help children of Brown County become ready for the upcoming school year. The 21st Annual Back to School Store will be held Wednesday, August 7th at East High School. We would greatly appreciate your help and would love to see you there!

 

Very Truly Yours,

Joey Liebmann
