Our next deserving  nominees!

Let’s give a BIG shout out and applause to:

BARB KRAUSE!

        

Thank you for this honor and opportunity to be an Unsung Hero!
I love life, have been very blessed, and I like to be involved in a variety of things while giving back to the community.
I’ve really enjoyed meeting all of you at the Chamber, hearing about all the many ways you help others in our community and learning how we can all interact to help each other.
At the Chamber, I represent the Greater West Bloomfield Historical Society.   During these unprecedented times, the Historical Society has still been very active sending out interesting newsletters and putting on Zoom seminars on a variety of fascinating topics.  In fact, you can become a part of history by sharing your personal experiences during the pandemic! Check us out at www.GWBHS.com
Starting out as a musician, I became a Certified Surgical Technician. I then went back to school and became a Middle School Science Teacher, which was a unique and wonderful experience, to say the least! I loved it and finally retired after 37 years.  I must say, that retirement has been rewarding, as well!
At our church, I  co-lead a Lifeline Team of 60 volunteers who help families that are in short-term crisis by providing meals, transportation, encouragement, and prayer. My husband, Dan, and I co-lead a large group of Singles 50+ group, providing a full schedule of activities each month. Of course, during the pandemic, activities have been put on hold, to keep our seniors safe. Zoom has become a very useful means of staying connected! We are also part of the Marriage Ministry helping couples before and after they get married.  My husband and I like to think of ourselves as “crack fillers” helping out where ever needed.
We are active in our unique Cass Lakeside Community, where Dan is assistant superintendent of our private water department and serves on the Orchard Lake City Council and on the Civic Center TV Commission. A friend and I just started up a “Welcome to our Neighborhood” group and we are having fun meeting new people.
I love boating, I’m a former pilot, and an amateur radio operator. (Ham) I have a son who lives in China, teaching English in the University of Technology in Xiamen. It’s been fun, exciting, and interesting traveling around, especially in China several times and to actually  participate in a Chinese wedding!  Yes, he met a wonderful and beautiful Chinese lady who is a French and English interpreter. They got married in 2018. They are expecting the birth of my first grandchild any day now.  Needless to say, I am very thankful for Zoom since travel there is not possible at this time. So, since they are not allowed to know the sex ahead of time in China….. stay tuned to hear whether it’s a boy or girl!
I am looking forward to continue working with all of you at the Chamber. “Hat’s off!” to Suzanne for being such a great connector and leader. It’s been a wonderful experience.  Thank you!
Galatians 6:9-10 NLT  “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.  Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone, especially to those in the family of faith.”
