Having departed from my position as Community Chapter Executive of the American Red Cross-Mohawk Valley Chapter in August, I missed the retirement of Toni Christensen, the long-time branch manager of the Red Cross office in Cooperstown. Toni’s long career with the Red Cross is well-known to the residents of Otsego County, and I am pleased and proud to have had the opportunity to work with this dedicated individual.
The residents of Otsego could sleep well at night knowing that any emergencies affecting their friends, families or neighbors would be handled swiftly and efficiently by Toni and her team of volunteers.
Although I’m a little late, my sentiments are heartfelt and sincere. I join all of Toni’s friends and associates in wishing her all the best as this new chapter in her life unfolds.
