THE CHARBONNEAU VILLAGER 11 January 2020 Tennis Club ■ From Page 10 person, she sought out organizations she felt strongly about. This opened up a world of volunteerism, which added even more friends. If there was not an organization, she would spearhead a new one. Always concerned that women did not know enough about controlling their financial stability and future, she started a successful investment club fo- cused on education only. NAIC (Nation- al Association of Investment Clubs) pro- vided the format, remember Beard’s Town Ladies? Kathi also served as pres- ident for an HOA in Breckenridge, Colo- rado where she owned property and convinced the homeowners to vote for a $21 million remodel of the ski resort. Then on to fundraising chairman and board member for a county-wide organi- zation in Naples, Florida. Kathi moved to Charbonneau about four years ago and quickly joined the tennis club. Again, to meet tennis friends and play her favorite sport. US- TA provides many opportunities to meet like minded people and make new friends. Kathi joined the board of CTC two years ago and participates on any committee that needs an extra hand! She also enjoys going to Timbers soccer games with friends. It is such an event and the fans put on quite a show! Kathi’s two dogs (Buddy & Brittney) are her constant companions and are the “perfect” tennis dogs! They watch quietly and do not chase the balls! And so, she is now home after 30 years, and is delighted to be close to her family, friends and tennis friends in the beauty of Charbonneau. aurora colony Vineyards Planning Committee ■ Steve Hall - chair ■ Kathi Gray ■ Peg Saries ■ Gary McKenzie ■ Jerry Baker Social Committee ■ Joanne Smith - chair ■ Kathie Gray ■ Karen Groenweghe ■ Stacy Naccachian ■ Barb Wilson r a Ye ines W w w e e N N Maintenance ■ Jerry Baker - chair ■ Steve Hall ■ Kathi Gray ■ Gary McKenzie ■ Frank Hall ■ Glen Mitzel ■ Janet Hostetler Tasting Room & Restaurant Thurs - Sun, Noon - 6pm 21338 Oak Lane NE, Aurora Just south of the Aurora Airport 503-678-3390 Custom Designed Kitchens & Bathrooms “We build cabinets the old fashion way!” Noah Built the Ark without a computer.
