Congratulations to Joy Olney for receiving Member of the Month for July! Joy participates in our water aerobics classes—the members would say she’s Miss Congeniality! Joy is friendly and positive; she is especially kind, helpful and encouraging to our new members in class. Joy has been a member of BAC since 1992.
Joy is originally from the East Coast, she moved to Bellingham in 1986. She has two sons, Richard and Mike who are both in town for the summer. Her boys spent many days growing up at BAC attending summer camps and being involved in Youth Programs. Joy has two standard poodles named Talley and Polly.
Joy is a renowned local artist and has made a name for herself in artistic circles around the world. The apple painting won a prize in the Little Gem Show at Scott Milo’s gallery in Anacortes this month. When Joy is not working on a painting, she is working in her garden.
Thank you for being so loyal to BAC over the years and we love having your positive mindset. You truly are a joy to have at the club!
