Maxine Olmstead is the volunteer coordinator for The Lyric Theatre in Swift Current. She spends countless hours arranging the schedule of volunteers who staff each event that takes place at The Lyric.
In addition to coordinating the volunteers, Maxine herself spends a tremendous amount of time volunteering as well.
When notified that she was this week's Eagle Applause winner, Maxine was away in B.C. on a much-deserved vacation and said in response to being told she'd won, "I never expected to be given anything for what I do, I do it because I really enjoy it. It's fun!"
She always has a smile on her face and is never too busy to show someone the ropes. The success of The Lyric Theatre and the many functions that go on there each month depend very heavily on the dedicated team of passionate volunteers who go out of their way to give of their time and efforts. As the woman who spearheads that awesome team, Maxine very richly deserves the Eagle Applause this week and the gift certificate from Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse!
Congratulations and thank you Maxine Olmstead!
