A huge thank you to our outgoing Board Members. This cohort of Board Members worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that Market not only functioned smoothly every Thursday, but also worked hard to create a solid foundation for the Market to grow on in the coming years. Because of this Board and the outgoing Market Manager, Hana Butler, the Market was able to establish new relationships with local businesses, offer music and free kids activities at each Market, introduce SNAP/EBT to the Market, increase the diversity of vendors, and overall grow the Market revenue and number of visits incrementally. Thank you to Jenny Bourgeois (Board President), Ellie Chikkaraju (Treasurer), Tara Walter-Waugh (Vice President), and Jamie Poe (Marketing leader). The Market would not be what it is today without them.
Luckily, we have recruited some incredible new Board Members to join the incumbent Board Members, Molly Hemler, Brittany Thurlow, Jason Williams, Nadine Witkowski, and Marcy Ostrom. Please welcome: Dan Wilkinson, Kim Nelson, Tricia Petersen, Hernan Savastano, Cali Osborne, and Hana Butler! Check out the rest of our blog for more about them!
