Hails and Farewells

We welcome John Kircher and Kramer Phalen to the Friends Board of Directors!  Both John and Kramer have supported the Friends in the past, and we are happy to have them both on the Board.  Our full Board, and list of Officers, is:

Corinne Irwin, Chair
John Kircher, Vice Chair
Claire Adrian-Tucci, Secretary
Kramer Phalen, Treasurer
Lynn Addington, Board Member

We offer a fond farewell to Donna Hanousek, one of our founders and past Chair of the Friends Board.  Donna has resigned from her active board position but will continue to keep connected with the organization through an Ex Officio capacity.  She said the organization is now up and running, and she is ready to move on to other work.  She has asked us to relay her appreciation to the many volunteers she has had the pleasure to work with and hopes to see them in the future.

We also said farewell to Rae Emerson, our National Park Service liaison, who retired at the end of July.  Rae was a great supporter of the Park and the Friends, and she will be missed.  We have a temporary liaison appointed to help us keep things running smoothly until a permanent liaison is named.

Hope to see you in the Park this Fall!
