My name was not included on Patricia Mandevilleís letter of Oct. 2 regarding our concerns about recent board decisions at the Chaffee Art Center. Therefore, I am writing to add my name to the disappointing steps that have been taken.
To me, over the past few years, the Chaffee has grown and expanded its presence in our community with creative and innovative programs for adults and children, always with continuing art exhibits. Much local talent has been launched, created and inspired at the Chaffee.
I am a member and have volunteered and participated in programs, always welcomed and appreciated by Mary and Jessica. The fundraising efforts I have seen have been done by Mary. Extensive publicity has been evident in and by the Rutland Herald as well as through mailings, and emails.
I thank Mary Mitiguy, executive director, and Jessica Kaminski, gallery coordinator, for their fine work for our local art center, the Chaffee. They will be remembered.
