Locals will recognize Connie from volunteering at other places in Downtown such as Broadway Bargains second-hand store and The Broadway Theater.

Connie was born in Rock Springs, but she grew up in Superior. After she graduated from Superior High School, she attended Westminster College in Salt Lake City.

According to Connie, “it feels good volunteering. You not only help yourself feel good, but you also will be doing well by helping others.”
She added, “It’s a very good way to meet other volunteers and community members.”
