For 2016 the two winners of the Citizens of the Year for GPNA are Mary Hardesty and Mickey Sherley. 10th District Councilman Pat Mulvihill spoke about both in high regard and then provided very specific narratives within the wonderful certificates he had prepared giving thanks to Mary and Mickey from the city. Here is what these women are about related to who we are as an association. Mary is our long time Secretary. She serves on the board as a true ambassador representing our interests out in the city on all sorts of matters. She has a green thumb and helps keep up our raised gardens. Sh makes it clear to the board and to residents the importance of a health food diet. She speaks to this with vast knowledge. Mary is a licensed doctor who worked 25 years at Louisville's Family Health Clinics. Mary lives on Samuel Street and is a role model to all about how to live independently. Mickey has a long time connection with our weekly bingo. She was immortalized when being painted for a mural as one dobbing a bingo card. The photo used was Mickey playing at our bingo. So it was from this she became Part of the well known and wonderful Three Points Mural. She drives from her south end home every Monday to play and work. Mickey is known to be a great helper to the bingo workers, and especially to our President Judy Magre. She has been able to bring us new players. On behalf of GPNA Judy provided each a framed certificate.
Councilman David Tandy was also recognized. He is leaving office in January, 2017. He was thanked for his long time commitment to our association. He was recognized with a Lifetime Membership Card from GPNA and given a book about Germans in Louisville.
Our Bingo is held at the GPNA center, 1094 E. Kentucky Street (40204) Proceeds help pay for our operating and maintenance costs and for our raised gardens in the side yard; and the maintenance at the Jim King Rain Garden.
