May 2021 FSS Newsletter

Dear FSS participants and Community Members,

 Goodbye Note from Su van Houwelingen – Executive Director of the Oshkosh/Winnebago County Housing Authority

It is with great excitement and a little sadness that I am writing this note to all of our wonderful tenants letting you know that my last day will be June 1, 2021 as I move on to retirement, or as I like to call it repurposing myself.”  For over 20 years, I have enjoyed coming to work every day knowing the mission of this agency is providing homes for all of you.  I wish I could say goodbye in person, but unfortunately due this crazy pandemic we are in, it is just not possible.  What am I going to do with my time, you ask.  Well for starters, I am going to spend a lot more time with my family, mostly the grandchildren. Peter and I have children and grandchildren on the east coast, west coast, lower Michigan and in Neenah/Menasha.  I’ll be spending more time in Door County at our trailer.  I plan to also transition into some other meaningful role, whether volunteer or paid.  I just can’t sit around, it is not in my nature. I will miss all you and my work family staff at the Housing Authority.  I ask that you keep me in your thoughts and/or prayers as I transition into the next chapter of my life.  Sincerely, Su van Houwelingen.

** Please join me in wishing Su a happy retirement.  We will miss her!  **
