Each change in fiscal year brings a change in board membership. We thank Robin Rego, Carl Peterson, Doris Leister, Sally Saunders, and Michelle Roman for their volunteer service at Lakewold Gardens. At the same time, we welcome Robert Boisvert, Phyllis Griggs, Roger Hansen and Mike Larson as our newest board members.
Being elected to a term on any board of directors is a big commitment. The job can be very rewarding: serving the community, moving an organization forward, working with energetic staff, and the development of friendships name only a few of these rewards. Challenges exist, too, as boards grapple with finance, move through conflict, and strive for progress in varying environments. We know it’s tough and are so thankful to all of the past and future board members and their amazing work at Lakewold Gardens. With each decision made, these folks leave a bit of themselves – their knowledge, their time, their talent. Thank you all for the many ways that you have and will continue to impact Lakewold’s future.
