Volunteer Spotlight: Reina Vidaurri

Reina Vidaurri 
Mom of Christina '12 and Ana Maria '15

Reina Vidaurri is a mother of four with a full time job as a social worker.  She has volunteered at Rosary events since her oldest daughter entered Rosary as a freshman.  She says, “I was encouraged to volunteer at Cracked Crab during Freshman WOW. The chairperson was a parent from our parish school, St. Bruno. I signed up that weekend and have been involved with Cracked Crab for four years. My duties have ranged from set-up prior to the event, kitchen preparation-chopping vegetables, serving food, running to Smart-n-Final to purchase food items, and selling drinks and dessert as a fundraiser for our daughter’s lacrosse team. Volunteering at Cracked Crab is fun and it is a great way to meet new people.  I have met some of my daughter’s closest friends by working at the events.  Being involved helps you get to know the staff and parents at the school.”
The annual Cracked Crab dinner will be held on November 2, 2013 and is sure to be a blast! Don't miss out on this all-you-can-eat crab feast! 
Recently Reina has enjoyed helping at the Rosary track meets. “The track meets are held mostly on Thursday afternoons and some Saturdays. My job was to assist with running the scorecards to the recorders. I have met parents from Rosary and Servite.  I volunteered at the finish line cheering my daughter and son and their friends.”
Reina has many reasons for getting involved, “I feel it is important to volunteer and become involved in my children’s school as a way of expressing my appreciation and meeting new people.  It also shows my children the importance of volunteering and shows them that I want to be actively involved in their lives. I work full-time and have four children but I have still managed to contribute.  There are definitely opportunities for those of you who work full-time."
"Every job is important. Everyone has a gift to contribute. Whether you are a chief, creative, good at sales, or a general  worker bee...our contribution is helpful to the success of each event."
Rosary thanks Reina for her support!  If you would like to volunteer your time with the Parent Council, please contact Mike & Maryanne Martinez, volunteer chairs, at mmartusc@gmail.com.
