A spring spruce-up is underway in our SEEDS office at The Cooperage in Honesdale! I have been doing NEW THINGS for SEEDS, which surprises me as I have been in a leadership role since 2008. I have been poking my nose into our office, upgrading our look, re-organizing our stuff, recycling, re-purposing and getting rid of the clutter that inevitably builds up over time.
Others have helped, including my husband, Pete Snyder, who designed and built new shelving in our closet that makes it a much more efficient space. He also built doors for some of our shelves to provide much-needed storage space.
All this is being done just in time to welcome our new Executive Director, Olga Trushina (see article in this newsletter), with whom we have been working these past few weeks to acclimate her to her new job.
We are excited to bring Olga on board as we implement our new Strategic Plan. As Chair, I have worked closely with SEEDS’ past Executive Directors, Jocelyn Cramer and Sandy Long, and now with Olga. It has been a great privilege for me to do this. I have learned a huge amount from them and from all the volunteers on our board and among our members and advisors.
I hope you, dear readers, will have ample opportunities to interact with Olga. You can start by coming to our next major event on March 21 (see article in this newsletter.) We can show off our cleaned up office, too!
