Some of Cindy Mustard's co-workers and friends shared their reflections on what Cindy has meant to them and to the community Sept. 29 at Voluntary Action Center.

COLUMBIA — During an open house held Thursday to honor Cindy Mustard, the Missourian asked some people who've known Mustard a long time to reflect on what she has contributed to Columbia, and what she has meant to them personally.

Mustard is retiring after serving as executive director of the Voluntary Action Center for 20 years. Donna Beckett, one of the Missourian's interviewees, said she always thinks of Mustard at Christmas time because of her charity.
