Lantz, Wagner, Fair honored by CEFS


Diana Wagner has served as a volunteer on the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Board in Shelby County since 2007. According to Beth Beck-Marts, Shelby County Outreach Coordinator, Diana Wagner could be counted on to be in attendance and provide her services to ensure that the Emergency Food and Shelter Program funds were available to Shelby County residents.

Diana Wagner retired April 1, 2013 after fifteen years as the Shelby County Supervisor of Assessments and twenty years of working in the office. Diana Wagner has also resigned from the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Board. Shelby County Outreach Coordinator Beth Beck-Marts expressed her gratitude for Diana’s dedicated volunteer service on the Emergency Food and Shelter Program Board which has been a great benefit to the outreach and assistance efforts provided at the C.E.F.S. Shelby County Outreach Office.

Diana Wagner is married with one adult daughter. Diana remains active in the community and serves on the Shelbyville Public Library Board. Diana enjoys walking, reading and motorcycle riding with her husband.

Doris Fair has been very active in her community since retirement from full time work. Doris has volunteered with the Red Cross, the Methodist Church Food Bank and the Plaza Boutique thrift shop that is sponsored by the Shelby County Senior Center. Doris is a volunteer coordinator for the Shelby County Pencil Pal Program. Doris also provides child care and visits those who are sick and homebound in her community. Doris uses her talents to make hats and blankets for premature infants and donates them to area hospitals. Doris has also participated in the Linus Blanket project and made quilts that were given to children in hospitals. Further, Doris is a member of the Shelbyville Assembly of God Church and participates in many of their volunteer efforts.

Program Specialist Amy Ellis noted that Doris Fair has been a huge benefit to the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). Doris Fair has taken a leadership role with the Pencil Pal Program in Shelby County and has taken the responsibility of exchanging letters between the school children and the volunteers. In addition, Doris has been instrumental in helping to recruit volunteers, keeping the program running smoothly and encouraging the volunteers to get their time sheets in on time. “Doris is always available to help with anything that is needed. Without her help, the Pencil Pal Program would not be the success it is in Shelby County,” stated Amy Ellis.
