We welcome to Faye Longo, who joined the Loan Fund in November as Coordinator of Child Care Programs. Faye grew up in Vermont, and had been living in New Mexico before returning to the Green Mountains. Faye is currently working on her B.A. at Johnson State College and lives North Barre with her two children.
We said goodbye to former Business Development Specialist Cindy Daniels, who leaves us after six years. Best of luck, Cindy!
We said farewell to Nancy Brock, VCLF Board member for the past eight years and Board President for the last three. Many thanks, Nancy…we’ll miss you! Also leaving the Board was Michelle Ollie; any thanks to you, Michelle!
Louise Calderwood, longtime Board member and most recently, Board Vice-President, steps into the role of Board President. Former Treasurer Karin Chamberlain moved into the role of Vice President, and Board member Janet Spitler is our new Board Treasurer. Congratulations and thanks to all!
Joining the Board is Ira Marvin of Hyde Park. Ira comes to us with years of experience and expertise in Vermont sugaring, specialty foods and agriculture, as a principal of Butternut Mountain Farm in Morrisville – one of the largest maple processors and distributors in the country. Welcome, Ira!
