As the Pub Club Board Members prepare for Thanksgiving, we have a lot to be thankful for: our smart and talented members, our generous sponsors, cooperative Boston media – our list could go on and on! But there’s one person that we are especially grateful for this Thanksgiving, you might not know her, but the Pub Club couldn’t run without her – Pam DeCoste, our Executive Administrator!
Pam is the glue that holds the Pub Club together – organizing our meetings, coordinating Bell Ringer judges, entries and the actual event, reaching out to get new sponsors, helping with social media – you name it Pam does it! So this Thanksgiving, all the Pub Club members want to give a special shout out and thank you to Pam! Here are just a few anecdotes from the board on what Pam means to us:
“Pam may seem like the ‘gal behind the curtain’ for Pub Club, but she is a driving force keeping things moving forward. Don’t let her calm demeanor fool you – she’s a smart, passionate practitioner who problem solves and gets things done faster than you can imagine is possible.” – Amanda Fountain
“Pam = clever + reliable + creative! Her energy combined with her thoroughness and ability to problem solve is what keeps this Club alive and well. I am thankful for Pam!” – Cheryl Gale
“It is truly amazing how Pam is able to bring together the thoughts and ideas of such a large group of talented individuals, and generate results of such significance. Whenever there is a question or concern, Pam either has the answer or is one of the first people to offer get it. I’m not sure our organization could be nearly as successful without her ongoing support and commitment!” – Derek Edmond
“If America runs on Dunkin, the Pub Club certainly runs on (or because of) Pam. The energy behind everything we do.” – Todd Graff
“We joke that Pam is the ‘glue’ behind the Pub Club, but she’s so much more than that. She always keeps us organized and moving forward, but she also is our ‘go-to’ person for any need. She brings positivity and energy to the club, and it wouldn’t be the same without her!” – Ashley Waters
“Working with Pam gives me serenity in the otherwise chaotic world of the Bell Ringers… She’s so organized, calm and creative, and always willing to do the real legwork. The awards process could not happen without Pam, from programming databases to arranging flowers, to making sure sponsors and award winners get their recognition, Pam’s on it all. As we gear up for our 50th Bells in 2018, I couldn’t be happier to have Pam behind the wheel.” – Amy Shanler
“Pam is fantastic and so easy to work with. She is always looking for ways to make the Club smarter and more profitable, constantly coming up with ideas for programs, surveys, website updates and much more to help the Club stand out!” – Liz Hosman
Thank you Pam, and Happy Thanksgiving from everyone on the Pub Club Board!
