Congrats, Chris, on literally making history for the Community Foundation

At Chris' retirement event, he was presented with a wonderful, custom-made memory box that includes a history-packed, leather-bound memory book, created as a labor of love by Nancy Fennell and her staff, Margaret Stewart, and Nora James.

(This is a big bunch of memories, so it may take a minute to load once clicked or expanded!)

Email us a farewell note or retirement wish
and we'll pass it along to Chris.
