Grants Pass, OR
Nominated by Mary Groves

Volunteered for:

Josephine County Fairgrounds

Length of Service:

50 hours per month for 1 year

January 24, 2014

Germaine Cartmell is an 83 year old volunteer that saw the desperate need of the Fairgrounds Community Event Center in Grants Pass, OR and wanted to help make the grounds a better place. She is a retired school teacher and she volunteered at least 50 hours every month in the flower beds and landscaped areas to make them beautiful once again. She engaged community business to help her with the beds and irrigation needs along with flowers so no Fairgrounds funds needed to be spent. She encourages and supervises additional volunteers from the community to help her. We are very blessed to have her decorations for every season of the year in our office as well.
