Thanks For Your Salute



Thank you for your "Salute to Volunteers." Let me mention a volunteer who stepped up big time for our beautiful library.

Jacqueline Ricker moved to Payson in the early 90s and immediately started to work toward getting a library building for Payson. At that time, the Payson Library was in the Payson Womans Club building.

She belonged to the library board for many years, was instrumental in introducing fund raisers like the "Taste of Payson" in l999 and the used book sales in the library, collecting thousands of books, cataloging and sorting them ... doing all this while fighting a 15-year battle with lung cancer. Her efforts never wavered even though she was slowed down at times because of the many chemotherapy sessions.

"Jackie" lost her battle March 30 and all of Payson can be thankful for her dedication as a big time volunteer.
