Joanne has been a very stable part of this organization and will be greatly missed. This store is another of Joanne's dream-come-true projects. She helped start the store in 20ll, and with her direction, drive, and ex- traordinary faith almost $30,000 has been donated to various orga- nizations in Quartzsite. Joanne will be missed. The vol- unteers are thankful for her pres- ence, dedication, ideas, and helpful attitude. We are hoping she will somehow return. We understand her personal time needed. Joanne is dedicated in every project she undertakes and we wish her great success in her endeavors. As time changes all things, the Quartzsite Community Thrift Store will continue the dream of "help- ing fund" the organizations in Quartzsite. And again, Thank You, Joanne Winer.
