Ilona Pinzke- Treasurer Combining a love for acting and numbers drew me to a startup theater company in Sauk-Prairie in the early 1990s and I have been serving as a treasurer for several companies ever since.  I've been serving on the MTG board in that capacity since 2008. Though now retired, my professional career as a business manager for an orthopedic surgical practice had me working with numbers on a daily basis.  Therefore, serving as a treasurer is a good way to volunteer and serve a community in which I also enjoy participating.
