Judy and Bill Goldsmith
Judy and Bill have two of the most familiar faces at Manna. You can normally find them on Tuesday mornings: Judy in the repack room preparing fresh produce and bread, and Bill either taking food out to cars, assembling backpacks, or delivering backpacks to area schools.
They also enjoy helping us out with events and fundraisers. The photo above was taken at this year's "Golf Fore Manna" Charity Outing at the Country Club of Boyne. From serving on Manna's Golf Committee to assisting with Empty Bowls, these two stay busy!
Native to the area, the couple currently lives in Petoskey. They incorporated Goldsmith Well Drilling in 1992, which they recently sold in their retirement. Both are highly involved in our community; Bill is a member of the Petoskey Sunrise Rotary, and Judy is part of the Little Traverse Bay Quilters Guild. This year, they were also recognized by Emmet County 4-H with the “Friend of 4-H” award.
The Goldsmiths have volunteered at Manna since 2013 and put in hundreds of hours each year. In fact, Judy has the third-highest recorded volunteer hours this year, almost 250!
