“The Second Wind Hall of Fame is a 38 year old Thermal Belt organization whose mission is to recognize and to honor the many active retired community volunteers who do so much to improve the quality of life for all our citizens. Ellen Zipf is an excellent example of the more than 200 current Second Wind members who, in retirement, catch a “second wind” in service to their community. At the annual luncheon meeting in September, Ellen Zipf will be celebrated for her contributions, along with the other new inductees into the Second Wind Hall of Fame,” according to Larry Poe, president, SWHF.


The Congregational Church is Ellen’s very proud sponsor. Ellen’s upbeat, “get it done” personality, coupled with a wonderful singing voice, has added vitality to everything with which she is involved.
