Why I serve on the Board of Directors…

“Now that I have retired from economic development, joining the Board of the Community Foundation gives me an opportunity to continue serving this region. My wife and I love the area and want to give something back to the communities that have made us feel so welcome.”
-Gordon Ipson

“It is an honor and privilege to serve this year as chair of the Community Foundation. In that capacity, I hope to foster and encourage the continued growth of the Community Foundation’s assets and its grant giving so as to improve and enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve.”
William McCleery, Jr.
