John Kreitler and his wife Margie are our guests on this cruise to thank him for his 20 years of service, first as Cabot’s corporate lawyer and most recently as the sole advisory director on Cabot’s board of directors, whose voting members are all farmers. John was critical to Cabot’s successful BCorp certification, helping us obtain this significant third party assurance of our environmental, social and community commitments.
Both Margie and John are active volunteers including volunteering with Caring Connections which assists aging or people with health problems with meals, transportation, and friendly visits.
“We see volunteers’ contributions as being fundamental to keeping our communities going. There are lots of opportunities out there to help your local community. For us we get back twenty fold what we give out.”
In addition to Caring Connections they are also involved in their church and help with a program called “Got Lunch”, which helps provide meals to kids in need during school vacations and summers. Now we just have to get John and Margie to use the Reward Volunteers program to log their volunteer time so their non-profits can win cash and prizes.
