Morgridge Center Update by Katie Coon

New opportunities at the Morgridge Center include a writer/publicist position with Easter Seals Wisconsin and a volunteer position at Goodman Park.

Writer/Publicist Position with Easter Seals Wisconsin

Easter Seals Wisconsin is looking for experienced writers and/or publicists to interview past and current beneficiaries and consumers of Easter Seals Wisconsin programs to develop written narratives and stories to be used with grant-funders, donors and for publicity and marketing. The purpose is also to create a library of stories to document the enormous positive impact that Easter Seals Wisconsin has had on thousands of individuals and their families and to preserve these stories and the history of this organization over the past 70 plus years.

Candidates must have excellent writing and interviewing skills, an ability to work with individuals of all ages and with individuals who have disabilities, the ability to foster trust and respect with individuals interviewed and be able to work independently.

If interested, contact Julie Short, Program Manager, (608) 237-1979. Visit to learn more about the organization and its opportunities.

Get the most out of this Spring Weather, Volunteer at Goodman Park

Volunteers are needed to clean up gardens in Goodman Park. This is a good opportunity to get outside and help improve the community. Tasks will include cutting perennials, raking, mulching, and other landscaping work. Tools will be provided. Goodman Park is home to the Goodman Pool, softball fields, a maintenance facility, a playground and a shelter, which make it a great location for summer activities. This is a great large-group opportunity to do with friends or organizations. If interested, contact Anne Whisner, Program Manager, at (608) 267-4919,
