GALYNNEmail Galynn

Galynn is co-founder and Chairperson of Village To Village Foundation.  In December 2006, Galynn heard the news story about a young soldier who instinctively gave up his life and sat on a grenade; thereby saving the lives of his comrades. His name is Ross McGinnis.  When Galynn digested the news, she knew right then, she was going to find a way to bring people together.
Galynn grew up in Buffalo, NY, and Fort Collins, CO. She served in the US Army, being assigned to Ft Bragg, NC and Camp Casey Korea. Afterwords she lived in NY, MD, VA, and now resides in PA.  Currently, Galynn works for the federal regulator of credit unions, NCUA.  Credit unions were designed to help people help each other.
Galynn enjoys working in her garden and being outside.  She loves traveling to new places in person and on her computer.  “Expanding my world evolved naturally, because I found it to be a very friendly place.  I was fascinated; everyone with their individual differences wanting all the same things. It makes my heart smile.”


 Email DaineDiane Griest is co-founder and Assistant Chairperson of Village To Village Foundation.  Her motivation for developing this successful organization comes through in her statement, “I enjoy doing for others and consider my life a success if I’ve made a difference in just one person’s life.”

Diane has performed volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity and delivered Meals on Wheels in Prince George’s County MD.  She loves animals and is a dog and cat owner.

At ages, 32 and 45 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, each unique from the other, yet she is still going strong!!  She participates in the National Race for the Cure, the 1st Saturday in June in Washington D.C.

Diane has lived in PA, NE, Germany, IN, MD, VA and now back home in PA. She spent 5 years in the Air Force and has worked for more than 25 years for the FAA.

Michelle Connolly serves as a board member for Village to Village Foundation and has been with the foundation since its earliest conception in 2006. She is currently a full-time Air Traffic Controller with Federal Aviation Administration but enjoys volunteering with Village to Village as a director on the board.

Michelle designs and prints many of the media materials used to advertise the goals of the foundation, assists in secretarial duties, and helps organize fundraising events.  She especially likes to be at our booth on the Washington DC Mall each Memorial Day weekend.  Each year, in conjunction with Rolling Thunder, V2VF honors our fallen veterans.

Elizabeth Slovak joined the board in 2010.  She currently serves as the Treasurer, along with volunteering for many of our events.  She enjoys working with Village to Village because she loves meeting the people whose lives we touch, help, and inspire. 
Elizabeth is a full time Air Traffic Controller with the Federal Aviation Administration and enjoys her family and being outdoors running, gardening, and soaking up the sunshine.  She looks forward to finding ways to support our veterans and their families
