OGT's longtime treasurer passes away

OGT's longtime treasurer passes away

All at Orphan Grain Train are deeply saddened by the passing of James Brenneman, our Corporate Treasurer. He had been involved with OGT since its inception in 1992 serving on the Board of Directors and as Treasurer since 1994. For the past 20 years, he was a dedicated and faithful worker, coming in daily to do banking and anything else asked of him. His smile, storytelling, and play-by-play sports re-enactments will be missed. Jim was a wonderful, loving, and caring worker who on a daily basis modeled what servant leadership was all about. The picture is of Jim working in 2001.

The Norfolk OGT office and warehouse will be closed on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 as staff and volunteers attend Jim’s funeral.
