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 Students, Sunday Teams, Catapult, Bloc Leading, etc. The featured volunteer will then select someone he/she would like to see highlighted next.
This week, meet Elizabeth!
ELIZABETH BENFIELD WATSON
Volunteer Area(s): Point leading on Cafe/Info Table team; I also was a bloc leader until a few months ago.
Why did you choose to volunteer in each of your areas?
I like getting to know people that I've volunteering with and welcoming attendees/guests. It is fun and easy compared to some of the other Sunday serve teams, but I think hospitality is an important part of the Sunday experience. I always imagine what it would be like to come to Watershed as a first-timer, and I think our Cafe/Info Table team helps make that first visit less scary.
What has been one of your favorite moments as a volunteer?
I always love it when people I know from other walks of life show up to service on Sundays.
If you could use only one word to describe our Watershed community, what would it be
Describe your perfect day in Charlotte:
I love spending time in the backyard with my family and friends. I don't grill, but if someone is cooking food on the grill - that's a plus!
NEXT I'D LIKE WATERSHED TO FEATURE KATIE WILLIAMS BECAUSE... SHE'S WORKED SO HARD COORDINATING THE CAFE/GREETING TEAM. SHE'S QUIET, SO SHE FLIES UNDER THE RADAR, BUT SHE IS A REALLY CARING AND CREATIVE LEADER!
