Project GRACE Welcomes New Board Member Donna Snyder, Thanks Jack Callahan and Sam Kelley for Years of Dedicated Service
Donna Snyder of Scarborough was elected to Project GRACE's board of directors at our October meeting. She will be serving as treasurer, a role held for many years by Jack Callahan.
"Our board provides the leadership and guidance to ensure we are meeting our mission to help our neighbors when times are tough," said Project GRACE executive director, Steffi Cox. "Our board members offer their time, talent, and resources because they feel so strongly about our community and truly care about the well-being of all our residents. Their energy and compassion are inspiring."
Project GRACE is greatly indebted to all its board leaders, past and present; we offer our heartfelt thanks to Sam Kelley and Jack Callahan for a job well done for so many years. And we extend a warm welcome to Donna.
"It is a pleasure to serve as a member of the board of directors of Project GRACE," Donna said. "I have always supported the mission of Project GRACE and look forward to becoming more involved in the organization's activities.
"It's exciting to be bringing on a new board member," said president, Bert Follansbee, "but we're also very grateful for Jack's steady hand on the tiller over the years, and we have come to deeply appreciate his optimistic and generous outlook." Jack lives in Scarborough with his wife Janet. A Tuft's University graduate, Jack's broad experience includes serving as CFO of MBI Trailers since 1993, working as Store Manager for Sears in Gloversville (NY), Waterville, Brunswick and Portsmouth, and serving with honor with the United States Marine Corps.
"It's also our great pleasure to thank another longtime board member, Sam Kelley. Along with his wife Jean, Sam has from the start been a steadfast friend and enthusiastic supporter," continued Bert. As his second term on the board came to an end, Sam remarked that his involvement over the years had given him a great deal of satisfaction. He added, "It's a great organization and it's a gift to Scarborough from [founder] Karen Packhem and all the folks who nurtured it through the years."
