A grateful farewell to Leslie Gilbert Matthewson, a KindTree Board of Directors member and Vice-President. Her thoughtful deliberations, dedicated attendance, and positive attitude served our community well despite distractions including getting married and taking on a new job. She has promised continued involvement in an advisory role, especially for our STiLE Program. Her plans also include returning to school – while still working full time – and reaching for new opportunities.Thank you, Leslie, and the best of luck in the future. We will miss you.
Welcome to new Board members!
Joining our Board this month are Laurie and Josh Erickson. They are mother and son who have been Friends & Family campers for 8 years or more and found it to be a life changing experience. Now they will be part of changing lives for many others.
Also joining is Angela Phinney, an experienced non-profit professional employed as the ARC of Lane County Assistant Executive Director. She has already dove into the work by leading our team effort to revitalize our Art Program, beginning with our planned May Online Art Auction, auctioning off many of the art pieces left with us from past Autism Artism events.
We welcome these new volunteers to our organization with love and excitement! The future looks bright!
