WELCOME TO VOLUNTEER FRIDAY!

Every other Friday we take a moment to introduce you to someone in our community who serves in one or more of Watershed's many volunteer areas: GreenHouse/Shed StudentsSunday TeamsCatapultBloc Leading, etc. The featured volunteer will then select someone he/she would like to see highlighted next.

This week, meet Ashlee!

ASHLEE JONES

Volunteer Area(s): Greenhouse (Sprouts!) & I co-lead a Women's Bloc

Why did you choose to volunteer in each of your areas?

I jumped into Sprouts after going through Preface about three years ago to really dig into the community that I was calling home! Being around kids has always been something I enjoyed so it was an easy transition. I got thrown into co-leading the Bloc a couple of years ago with Monica McGuire and it's been quite the adventure!

What has been one of your favorite moments as a volunteer? 

I absolutely adore being in the Sprouts room! That age group is so fun because they are so active and inquisitive but they also just want to snuggle up at times. It's so fun to watch as they grow through the year and we get to be apart of that!

If you could use only one word to describe our Watershed community, what would it be

Comforting.

Describe your perfect day in Charlotte:

Spending the day at the White Water Center! I love that this amazing outdoor space is so close to the city! I love going through the different ropes courses, the zip lines and ending with paddle boarding and relaxing by the river.

 

NEXT I'D LIKE WATERSHED TO FEATURE COURTNEY CRAVEN... BECAUSE SHE'S INCREDIBLE! SHE CO-LEADS A BLOC I AM APART OF AND JUST INSERTS HERSELF INTO THE WATERSHED COMMUNITY WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. PLUS, MANY PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW THAT SHE'S A PRETTY AWESOME SONG WRITER AND VOCALIST. ;)
