Sylvia Richards, Secretary & Treasurer
A founding member of the organization, Sylvia has been with the EVVPA since 2006. She has served in almost every position including: Treasurer, Trustee, Member, Volunteer Coordinator — whatever is needed: photographer, historian, information booth coordinator at community events, fundraiser, and volunteer recruitment opportunities.
A few years before Sylvia became so involved with EVVPA, she retired after 32 years with Bell Telephone operating companies in California & Arizona. Sylvia also volunteers with the Mesa Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association and serves as a Neighborhood Block Watch Captain.
Why does she works so tirelessly for EVVPA: “I think it is important to honor our veterans and their families for the sacrifices they make for our country and for all of us. AND, I love parades!”
