Lori J. Morgan
Hi! I’m Lori Morgan and I was blessed beyond belief to start this business in 1998 after moving to a new town myself!
Since then, many greeters and I have welcomed over 15,000 new residents to town.
We have met many interesting people, shared stories, made friends and helped new residents feel welcomed. All of us are passionate about supporting our local sponsors and thank them immensely because without their support we wouldn’t be in business.
Shop local please; where you live. It helps your whole community!
We encourage you to meet your neighbors, say hello, and take pride in the town you live in. If you are new in town, please let us know you are here; if you are a business, let us spread the word about you and if you know of anyone new in town; please give us a nudge. If we all work together our towns will become better places.
Thank you for visiting our site!
Hello my name is Cheryl Pleima ~ Welcome to our quaint city of Pella!
Lori greeted my family when we moved to Pella in 1999 and I thought it was such a nice welcome from her and the Pella area merchants.
After working in the corporate world for 30 years; Pella Corporation for 22 and Vermeer Corporation for 8, my desire and passion was to spend more time with family while serving in our community. My husband Arvin and I have five children and seven grandchildren. My greeter role allows me more flexibility for family while also helping others by welcoming them to town, congratulating them on new births and spreading the word about our wonderful community and friendly local businesses.
Ruthanne Van Den Berg
Hello, I am Ruthanne Van Den Berg. I moved to Pella with my husband two years ago from Arkansas. My husband’s family is originally from Pella and with my father-in-law still living here and all our grandchildren within two hours away, moving here was perfection. Although both Joe and I have lived many places in America, we had never been welcomed in such a warm and giving way to any of the communities where we lived. Being greeted with all the wonderful gifts and coupons was greatly appreciated and made us feel right at home. When we arrived, I was semi-retired and after chatting with the vivacious and gracious Lori, I asked her if perhaps I could join her team! My background is in Public Relations and I just quite simply love people so this has been a dream job for me! I hope I am the one that gets to welcome you to our charming community as I am a believer in all things Pella! So welcome to Pella! I know you will love our little piece of Heaven as I do!
