Since 2003, the Washington State Genealogical Society has recognized more than 400 outstanding volunteers, nominated by their local society or genealogical organization for their service and dedication. These volunteers are the backbone of their local society, giving their time and expertise, to the organization and the field of genealogy. In the coming months, you will be introduced to each of the 2014 award recipients and learn why they received the 2014 WSGS Outstanding Volunteer Award.
Today we're introducing Darleena “Dee” Hill of The Dalles, Oregon, who was nominated by the Columbia Gorge Genealogical Society (CGGS). She was recognized for her leadership, knowledge, and volunteer efforts toward the goals and operation of the CCGS.
Ms. Hill distinguished herself in her dedicated volunteerism to the CGGS, which serves counties along the Columbia River in both Oregon and Washington. Ms. Hill has served as the society’s Secretary/Treasurer. She also applied her administrative and accounting abilities to conduct audits and file the state-mandated reports required for non-profit organizations. Ms. Hill also managed the CGGS’s publications sales program, which involved maintaining the inventory of master documents, getting the documents reproduced, and completing the necessary shipping and billing. Ms. Hill has served as a board member for many years and made a significant contribution to the management of the CGGS.
A member of the CGGS for more than 20 years, Ms. Hill distinguished herself in her untiring support of the society, and proved that she richly deserved to be a recipient of a WSGS Outstanding Volunteer Award.
