We Say "Good-bye" to Gayle Hardt
We want to wish Gayle Hardt a happy retirement after 21 years of service at United Way Fox Cites. Gayle started at United Way in February 1992 
and has lent her expertise and enthusiasm for making a difference in her community to United Way

through the 2-1-1 Call Center, as a Community Development Program Officer and, most recently, as Vice President of Community Development. We will miss Gayle deeply, but wish her happy golfing, a wonderful retired life and thank her for her years of service! During her retirement party, Gayle was honored by friends and former co-workers who shared memories and stories of her incredible work in the community at United Way Fox Cities.
