Our volunteer board is made up of people from all walks of life, with
a wide variety of business and life experiences. They give generously of their time and energy to support our non profit because they believe in its mission. There is value in having an organization that can filter for facts, bring about civic betterments, provide some historical perspective, bring in the experts and address big issues when they need addressing,
all while attempting to promote common good and general welfare of the people of our community.
