VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH

MARLENE BOTTENFIELD
 
 
Marlene has been a member of Unity in the Gold Country for about 8 years. Unity values were already embraced by Marlene before moving to Nevada City, as she had been a member of Auburn Unity before moving here. UGC feels like family!
Marlene has quietly been an integral part of our community volunteering over the years in many capacities. She has been a greeter at the front door, an usher, helps in the office regularly, keeps our web page updated and is one of our trained chaplains. She works with teams for fundraising event such as Unity café, silent auction crew, yard sales, and was the inspiration for Sunday morning Unity Community Farmer's Market.  She plants extra healthy vegetables on her farm just for the purpose of sharing the bounty with UGC and feels that this idea helps create community with other gardeners and the congregation. Marlene inspired our "from our home to yours" gardening!  She has organized and hosted the "Harvest Meal" for the last 5 years for the UGC community. Marlene has also been a facilitator stepping in where needed as speaker for Sunday morning and leading groups for ACOL and Jeddah Mali meditation groups.

In Marlene's words, "UGC has given me the opportunity to grow my spiritual path with like-minded people. I enjoy volunteering because I feel the universal flow of giving/receiving so clearly. It holds me in our oneness as community. I feel so blessed to be in Unity's community!"
