The Board CornerMeet The Board Kevin Klevorn
One of the ways church leadership tries to help youconnect a face with a name for our board members isperiodic praying for the offering. Still, so many peo-ple visit both campus locations with (for now) threeseparate services that it is hard for many to knowenough about our current board members, so thismonth Ill introduce you to about half of the churchboard, with the balance to follow next month.
The senior statesman in terms of longevity at Walloonis Myron Matz, who started attending in 1966 (you'llhave to ask him how old he was). He has been mar-ried to Kim for 25 years. They have two daughters,Emily, 13 and Samantha, 11. He teaches theFoundations class on Sundays. For work, he is in theconstruction business as a general contractor, and forplay loves to hike in Colorado with his family.Myron lives in the Chandler Hill area at the east endof Charlevoix County.
The senior statesman in terms of age is DougGabrielsen (again, up to you to find out, but a hint is"octo"). Doug and Sus have been married a reallylong time, and they are the parents of three grownchildren and a mess of grandchildren. He moved toBoyne City in the mid 1980's as a plant managertransplant from Honeywell, who was headquartered"back east." They regularly spend time with family inNew Jersey, and winter in Arizona.
