Meet Your 2023 Club Officers

Mikaela Reynolds Blanchette | Published on 1/21/2023

We are so thrilled to introduce our new officers for 2023! But before we meet them, let's give a heartfelt thank you to our 2022 officers for all their hard work over the past year (and, for some, beyond). Thank you to President John Jannetti, Vice President Robin Condon, Treasurer Chad Pelletier, and Secretary Carolyn Burt.


Carolyn shared, “it was an honor to be the Club's secretary for the past 4+ years. Working with other dedicated volunteers in promoting the Club's mission was truly rewarding, particularly during the challenges of the pandemic. I look forward to continued involvement with the Club as it evolves.”


John added, “it has been a privilege and an honor to serve this club for the past 3 years. The club has given me so much and I am lucky that I was able to help. I look forward to helping in new roles going forward, as we all ‘lean in’ to make this club thrive.”


Get to know your 2023 club officers below.

"The more I became involved in the club, my positions just evolved over the years," said Robin. Her favorite part of MVS is the people. "This is something I enjoy doing with Emily, my daughter!"
