We are honored to announce the appointment of Shirley Gawlak as Ride Captain for Region 4 of PGRNY.
Shirley joined the PGRNY to honor her father a WWII/Korean Army Veteran who had over 25 years in the service and her (late) father-in-law who was also a WWII Veteran. Both her father and my father-in-law are Purple Heart Recipients.
She occasionally participated in missions starting in 2015 while employed full-time. In October 2020 her 34-year position as Project Coordinator with a local engineering company was terminated and she retired in 2021. From that time forward Shirley began doing missions on a regular basis. As Shirley states, “This is certainly a path I never expected, but am blessed and honored for it, and would never have known if not for my father and other respected veterans, and the PGR. I have come to love many of those I have met and consider them a part of my circle of friends/family.”
Please join me in congratulating Shirley Gawlak as newest Ride Captain in Region 4.
Senior Ride Captain
PGRNY Region 4
