BAC board volunteers have served us well | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
So many people give their time, energy and brain power to nonprofits in this community, working tirelessly behind the scenes, and they never seem to get their moments in the sun. We at Bainbridge Arts & Crafts would like to pause for a moment to shine a big Klieg light on two of our retiring board members, Jim Laws and Mackie Cargill.
During their tenure – Jim joined the board in 2005, Mackie in 2007 – we established our $1 million endowment; instituted health benefits and a 401k program for our staff; and weathered a brutal recession and the destruction of Winslow Way. Mackie and Jim were a huge help to the board and to me; we relied heavily on their big brains, boundless energy, and unfailing good humor. Not to mention that they happily poured umpteen glasses of wine at umpteen artist receptions!
We know Jim and Mackie care deeply for the arts on Bainbridge Island and love BAC. We’re seriously going to miss them on the board, but we look forward to pouring them a glass at the next First Friday.
