Dear Friends:

We are so fortunate to have had Lynda Gutcheon as our wonderful Interim Educator these past two years. She has guided us skillfully through the transition following Anne Stein's retirement in 2015. As planned, Lynda's term will come to an end as of June 30, 2017. We are deeply grateful to Lynda for her hard work, her wisdom, and her leadership.
