TUC Volunteer of the Year – Natalie Fitzgerald

Natalie has worn many hats for the Club in 2010. She has convened multiple leagues throughout the year; handling scheduling, team requests, dealing with venue issues, etc. She currently serves on the TUC Board of Directors where she is an active participant, and is also the current Touring Chair for the TUC. This involves a great deal of work with our local touring teams, supporting their efforts and in turn organizing their volunteer efforts. Natalie is a leader on team Lotus, and helped run the women’s spring tournament and several clinics for women. She is also a big advocate for Juniors and has helped develop our Juniors policy and push for more Juniors involvement moving forward.

For the hundreds of hours that Natalie has committed to TUC in 2010, thank you so much!
