LINDA HAYES, MEMBER AT LARGE
In my past life, I have been a rancher, a teacher, an author, and a business owner. I have served on the Board of Directors of the International Lama Registry, a large multi-faceted organization that did everything from sanctioning shows, and training show judges to keeping data on llama genetics. I also served on the Boards of several regional llama and alpaca associations. I was awarded the "Lifetime Achievement" Award by the Rocky Mountain Alpaca and Llama Association in 2016.
I am retired and have lived in this area since 2017. I'm a 2.5 player and play at Pioneer Park and Espire. I take an active part in the various Prescott Meet Up groups and OLLIE at Yavapai College. Besides playing Pickleball I am an avid couples dancer and have recently published a book on dating for seniors. It is called Winter Love A Guide to Senior Dating.
Our organization is poised to do even more for it’s membership. More courts, more chances to play at all levels and more social events are currently in the works. I’m in charge of the membership committee and welcome those of you who are willing to help me with our goals.

A summary of my volunteer experience:
I lived in Denver, Colorado for over 40 years and during that time I was fortunate enough to participate in a number of volunteer opportunities.
One of my favorite fundraisers was for the Special Olympics (The Kennedy Family special project). I was affiliated with a group who sponsored and staffed bowling tournaments and swimming events for the children every year for five years. One year we had a golf tournament and the net proceeds were over $25,000 for the Special Olympics. (I drove the Martini cart!)
I retired from hospital administration after 26 years and during that tenure I volunteered on a number of committees to help the community.
We adopted a local school-first through 3rd grade class. We raised money for the childrens' school supplies, we bought toys for the families and delivered them a couple of days before Christmas every year. I also taught Arts and Crafts every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00 PM for 8 weeks to students at the same school. It was very humbling.
I was president of my Home Owners Association for ten (10) years-an experience every homeowner "should be a part of"!
I volunteered for the last Prescott Pickleball membership tournament and collected from generous donors. I assisted Keith and Helen Maland for a couple of their clinics.
