Peggy Striegel - Volunter Spotlight - June 2010

Peggy Striegel of the Broken Arrow Beautification Committee, a volunteer organization of the Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce, is being honored in the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful “Volunteer Spotlight” during June.

Since 2006 when Peggy joined the, then newly reformed Broken Arrow Beautification Committee, she has given countless hours of her time and expertise to the group. Peggy and other committee members have continued to nurture the committee into a thriving group that has been recognized statewide for its beautification efforts. In May 2010, the committee gained provisional status in the growing network of KOB affiliates.

Committee Chariman Deidre Ellis refers to Peggy as the “I can do that” woman. “She is the media specialist, secretary, grant writer and the I can do that person. She contributes an enormous amount of time to the committee and is one of those persons who you know will fulfill each commitment for which she volunteers,” remarked Ellis.

Peggy can always be found volunteering to work at the Beautification Committee’s Home Owners Association workshop, as well as helping to assign mile segments to volunteers during the bi-annual Trash Bash. When the Beautification Committee wanted to establish a social media presence, she undertook a major commitment to work alongside students from Northwestern State University to achieve this goal. With 32 years of advertising experience from owning and operating Striegel Advertising, Peggy was able to mentor, instruct and share her knowledge of the advertising world with the students along the way.

Not only does Peggy give generously of her time to the Broken Arrow Beautification Committee, she also works with The Gatesway Foundation and the Arthritis Foundation, where she serves on the Board of Directors. One committee member stated that “she is the ultimate I can do that woman and the committee just doesn’t know when she sleeps.”

Eleanor Roosevelt and Lady Bird Johnson are just two of the ones whose husbands' presidencies might have looked significantly different without their help.The cake looks as if it would taste light (ten yolks notwithstanding) and delicious. Beautiful pictures!

I agree that we should use Facebook.. in what way? not sure. I was happy with this liltte news story. it was fine.Even without Facebook, or any website, social network , we would be/ we are being watched this was true 15 yrs ago. ,20 yrs. ago, 40 yrs ago, 60 yrs. ago same as it ever was.. nothing new.. an old tale/ saga Since we have nothing to hide who cares make plans regardless. Do the work, reach out, better your community, step up to bat.I don't feel the need (for myself) to hide anything. If u go on line , the moment u login ( into anything at all ) you are being tracked.Refuse to live in fear, in shame, blame ,guilt, or play a dirty liltte game of hide and seek ( I mean this as a metaphor).As full time activist you already know you are watched all the time. You may have a home bugged, a car bugged , followed, tracked in a million ways, You might even have folks in your ranks that are spies and report to someone. In the past these folks were called Rats. Some folks can be paid off to do dirty work. I am not a fear-full person. Just stand tall, chin up, chest out, breath deep, smile, let a few fart jokes, do something fun. Be Well, Stay Strong, help out your friends and buddies. Make sure you do SELF CARE daily, without your health you don't have much. We should fight for free clinics.Love MichaAs we all know being TRANSPARENT is the most important thing
