MS. KAY SKIBBE turns 100 years old.

Caring and Sharing of South Walton is looking forward to celebrating one of its most dedicated volunteers, Kay Skibbe, turning 100 years old on April 5. Ms. Kay, as she’s affectionately called, has been volunteering with the organization for more than 15 years and remains a dedicated advocate of their mission. 

“Ms. Kay has been working with us for a long time now and she remains sharp as a tack!” said Barbara Owens, Assistant Director at Caring and Sharing. “We can always count on her to be at her Friday morning volunteer shift, ready to work.” 

Caring and Sharing invites the community to come celebrate Ms. Kay on April 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They will be serving mini cupcakes from Sweet Henriettas and offering 15 percent off purchases from the Caring and Sharing Thrift Store, in honor of Ms. Kay’s 15 years of service. 

“We are so lucky to have Ms. Kay volunteering with us for all these years! She keeps us on our toes and we are looking forward to celebrating her 100th trip around the sun with her,” said Kim Hope, Director of Caring and Sharing.
