The Interim Management Committee & WFC Board of Trustees thanks everyone who made our Summer 2023 season a huge success!
A huge THANK YOU!! to the Interim Management Committee (IMC) for all they’ve done to make this success possible over the past year, right through this summer:
Howie Fain, Acting Executive Director
Susan Ogden, Marketing and Outreach
Cat Roberts, Staff and Volunteer Coordinator
Norma Wassel, Development and Dining Hall Hospitality
Linda Wheeler, Bookkeeping and Office Support
Words of thanks for the IMC and appreciation for all the World Fellowship staff & volunteers:
Andy Davis and Andrea Walsh, Directors 2001-2021: “Howie and the IMC have provided a crucial service at a critical time for World Fellowship. After being closed in 2020, partially open in 2021, and the challenges of 2022, their leadership brought the WFC vibe alive in 2023! By working with the staff and board as volunteers, they’ve contributed to a positive bottom line and to a positive spirit all year long. Thank you all so much!”
Kit and Christoph Schmauch, Directors 1970 – 2000: “We look forward to the administration of Andrew and Megan with great anticipation. After meeting them we are quite confident that they will be able to find the right balance between continuity and change at WF. We couldn’t be happier and more confident that there will be a bright future for WF, since it really is to a large degree ‘The Beloved Community’ that MLK, Jr envisioned.”
Andrew Maki and Megan Chapman, Incoming Directors Designate 2023: “It has been an incredible experience getting to meet so much of the World Fellowship community over the last weeks of the summer. We feel like we have really “come home” with the warm welcome we have received. Shadowing the IMC and working side-by-side with staff and volunteers over the final weeks of the summer has been a wonderful way to learn all that it takes to keep World Fellowship running. It is so exciting to hear the refrain, “World Fellowship is back!” and see community management in practice. We look forward to working together with the whole community to build this next chapter.”
