Wynn recognized by Mountain West Region of Sertoma

The Gleneagle Sertoma Club submitted their 2022 “Sertoman of the Year,” announced earlier this summer as Dr. Vicki Wynn, to the Mountain West Region’s consideration of the region’s 30 clubs’ nominees. From the field of 30 clubs, Wynn was selected as the regional recipient. Wynn, owner of Timberview Animal Hospital, received the distinguished plaque from regional director Dave Oppenheim of Denver at the Sept. 7 meeting of the Gleneagle club.

Wynn was singled out for her significant new-member recruiting, leadership as a primary fundraising project organizer, and consistent participation in hands-on projects of service to the community.

“Our Gleneagle club is very proud to see Vicki’s recognition advance to the Regional Level,” said club president Larry Oliver. “She is a shining light that draws us together and inspires us to be better.”
