Retiring and New Board Members

As we start a new fiscal year, we are saying goodbye to a few board members that are retiring off the Board, but also saying hello to a few new faces at the Foundation. Thank you, Peter Howard, Paul Thompson, and Kay Trakas for your dedication to The Community Foundation. Your hard work and dedication to better the community has not gone unnoticed. We would not be able to serve our region without the amazing Board of Directors we have at the Foundation. The Community Foundation is excited to welcome four new Board members Richard Camp, Janet Holley, Kathy Hurt and Brian Wilson. Click here for a full list of the Board of Directors.

Order you 4"x8" brick for $100 or 8"x8" brick for $200 to celebrate or memorialize your most important people, pets and dates for years to come.

Each engraved brick will be a visible part of the main entrance and gar den area.
