Diane Dimmick (Our Office Manager)
Greetings to all! I am so blessed to have been selected to the position of Office Manager of this wonderful church. Now a little history about me: Hapeville’s been my family’s home for many years. I graduated from Hapeville High after attending for only my senior year (we moved here from Largo, FL). Then it was off to UGA for 1-1/2 years (two football seasons ). My work experience has been three years at SunTrust Bank then three years at Southern Airways; next came First National Bank of Atlanta (ne’e Wachovia, Wells Fargo) for 28 years in their Bond and Money Market Group. In 2003 I was back in Happyville and worked for the City in their Finance Department for eight years. Next stop was a part-time job with the Airport Area Chamber of Commerce for seven years. During those seven years I was elected to and served on the Hapeville City Council.
I enjoy traveling and make annual trips to Wyoming and Pawleys Island SC. My greatest joy comes from watching the birds in my backyard. I’m a member of the Georgia Audubon Society and my home is an Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary.
Now I am blessed to be working for Pastor Chris in the church office. Please let me know if I can be of help to you in any way, It’s good to be home.
