Farewell to our Daredevil Delima!

March 2012

With heavy hearts, UNAC/UHCP bids State Treasurer Delima MacDonald goodbye.  On March 31, 2012, our favorite free spirit will begin her new life in retirement.

In 1982, Dee, as she was then known, became UNAC’s state treasurer.  What Would Delima Do was born.  At UNAC/UHCP, Delima is known for her no nonsense approach to record keeping and staying on the right side of the law.  In fact, UNAC/UHCP is what it is today because she paid attention to where every penny was going. It is widely acknowledged that the successful growth of our union was possible because of Delima. She always took her job seriously, and made sure everyone using union funds used them wisely.

What few knew was that while Delima was training the future treasurer-leaders at the affiliates by day, she was out racing motorcycles by night.  She was even a certified hypnotist.  Yes, there are many things about Delima we probably don’t know, but that which we do know won’t ever change: Delima is one-of-a-kind, and we will miss her very much.
