Lund welcomes new board members

Posted in Board of Trustees Spotlight, Volunteer Spotlight tagged , , , , , , at 1:42 pm by Lund

Lund is very lucky to have a hardworking, dedicated, supportive  Board of Trustees who are entirely committed to helping the women, children and families of Vermont.   We could not do the work that we do without them.  As of the beginning of our new fiscal year in July, we are pleased to welcome five new board members.  We also have a new Board President, Sara Byers.   Former President Lisa Pizzagalli will remain on the board.   Thank you to all our board members for their hard work.  Please read about our new members below.

She is pleased to now have the opportunity to become directly involved by joining the board. Having lived in Burlington all her life, Lucy sees Lund as “contributing enormously to the fabric of the town”. Lucy is also on the board of the Champlain Senior Center. In her free time she enjoys walking, gardening, tai chi, boating on the lake and spending time with her four grandchildren.

As a former beneficiary of Lund’s services, Heidi was looking for an opportunity to give back to the organization. “Over the years, I have often wondered how I could ever repay Lund’s generosity. As a board member I will have the opportunity to say thank you for all that you have done for me and my family,” she says. Heidi lives in Milton and is an active volunteer for the Recreation Department and the library while also studying full time for a legal studies degree.
