Departing Board Members Leave Legacy of Service

The June 26th meeting of the Board of Trustees saw the departure of three board members who between them have given 22 years of service to Lund.  What an amazing achievement.  We are so grateful to the hard work of Tim Halvorson, Aimee Marti and Jeff Small.

Tim joined the Board in 2010 and served on the legislative committee, now referred to as the government relations committee. He is the owner of two successful restaurants on Church St in downtown Burlington and also serves on the board of COTS and the Vermont Downtown Project.  Tim has a huge presence in the local community and we are very appreciative for his time helping children and families to thrive by working with Lund.

Aimee also joined the Board in 2010 and served on the development committee and was instrumental in helping Lund with the 2012 re-branding process.   She has recently launched ‘The Starboard Collection’ – a line of nautically inspired dishware.  You can check it out here.   We wish her luck as she sets sail on her new adventure and are so thankful for her time with us.

Jeff is a CPA in Burlington and served on the Lund Board for 16 years, including 6 as president.  He was extremely involved in the Glen Road Capital Campaign that was completed in 2007 and saw the addition of 8 bedrooms to the residential treatment facility as well as sorely needed renovations.  Jeff brought his financial acumen to Lund and was keenly committed to the continued sustainability of the organization.  In recognition and honor of his service,  the Lund management team has established the Jeff Small Pioneer Award to be given annually to a staff member who shows commitment to innovation and change at Lund.  Jeff remains on the 50 Joy Drive Capital Campaign Steering Committee and we are very grateful for his continued support.

Three new board members have been elected to fill these now empty positions.  Stay tuned for updates on our new trustees.

Thank you to all our friends and community members who currently serve or have previously served on our Board.  Your dedication to helping us do essential work for the children and families of Vermont is an inspiration.
