REPORT ON RECENT MEMBERS’ MEETING: Construction Updates & New Pledge Program

The Members’ Meeting on May 19 was attended by more than 20 members plus staff – nearly 10% of our membership (230). We started the evening by sharing the delicious food everyone contributed, then heard details of the Site Improvement Plan from Michael Heacock, our architect and project manager (and former board president). After the deck, new path between Loft and Gallery, and exterior staircase are built, we plan to add an accessible main entrance to the Loft, ADA restroom, and ADA parking space. The accessibility improvements are a choice as well as a requirement.

Our contractor, James Chenney, then answered questions about the timeline and scope of work. If all goes smoothly, the first phase will be completed by the beginning of September. There will be some inconvenience, noise, and limited access during construction, but all are committed to keeping the Center’s programs open and working throughout.

We are sad to announce that beloved longtime member Elinor Severinghaus passed away on March 16th after a long illness. She was a watercolorist, teacher, wife, mother, and world traveler. Her book with Suzi Martin, “According to Ann,” collected Ann O’Hanlon’s teachings.
