Sandi Hages, United Way Director for Clare and Gladwin Counties, will retire on June 9. Sandi has been the Executive Director of the Clare United Way and Volunteer Center for more than 20 years, and has been the Executive Director of the combined United Way organization for the last three years. When asked what she liked most about her position, she responded that “at the end of the day it comes down to helping our neighbors in the two counties we serve.” Sandi also commented that she will miss the agencies with which she’s worked for the past 20 years and the relationships she’s formed with the folks who work at those agencies as well as the United Way volunteers. Although Sandi is leaving the organization in good standing, she expects that additional efforts will need to be made by the new Executive Director in the area of fund raising. She predicts that additional events will have to be planned in conjunction with the annual campaign.
Sandi’s plans include moving to Florida to live near her sister and family. She will most likely be looking for a job and volunteering at nonprofit organizations as much as time allows.
A Retirement Open House is planned for Sandi at the United Way office in Clare on Thursday, June 11 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Agency staff and former board members are invited to attend.
