Time of Transition
(from The FPM Advocate - 22 June 2021)
The pandemic has brought about many changes. Transitions, adjustments, cancellations, delays. FPM is embarking on one more change in the very near future. The change of the executive director.
This communication comes as both an announcement of my leaving and a thank you for all that I have been a part of for the past five years.
It was a difficult decision to leave FPM but this is a good time for new leadership. The staff team is solid, and so committed. It has been an absolute delight working with these gifted, dedicated and grace filled human beings. I could not have asked for a better team. They truly are the cream of the crop.
And we have a plan. FPM has a clear vision moving forward and is in the ideal position for a new director to come on board and take the organization to the next level. As an organization, FPM is primed and ready to go!
I am proud of the work we have done. I am immensely proud of The Common Table Farm and Market project. Watching that idea take shape, grow, and serve so many people in the Flemingdon Park area will be my forever joy as I embark on my new path.
FPM is a committed partner and working with other agencies is something that we have always done well and this staff team has made those connections even stronger.
I am grateful to the staff, the board, our community, our volunteers, and to our growing base of supporters. We can’t do the work we do without the generosity of those who support our work, so thank you. You have been an integral part of our work and I can’t tell you enough how much I have enjoyed the emails of support and encouragement for all that FPM does as it serves the community.
Again, thanks so much. It has been my immense pleasure to serve the people here in and around Flemingdon Park. I am excited for your next steps and what lies ahead for you. If the last five years is any indication, there will be much joy and love shared, as well as many, many, hungry bellies filled.
Be well. Keep safe. And be kind in all things.
