Burl/WB United Way Welcomes New President

Burlington/West Burlington United Way President, Chet Young, welcomed a new president today at the 88th Annual Meeting Luncheon at the Pzazz Convention and Event Center.

During his speech, he shared how proud he was to be part of an organization that does so much for the Burlington and West Burlington area…

“When I have people come to me and say “my child got to go to Y-camp or girl scout camp, or boy scout camp because of your contributions”, I say, thank you United Way.”

Jerry Krause of F&M Bank will now lead the Burlington/West Burlington United Way as president.

Other candidates chosen to fill a couple seats were KC Fleming as the 2015 General Campaign Chair and Dan Luttenegger as the General Campaign Associate.

During last year’s campaign, the United Way topped their goal, and raised $617,705 that went to organizations in our community that help people in need.
