Thank you Latane and Faison!

Latane Long and Faison Dana have served as co-chairs of our Foundation Committee since its inception. They volunteered to address the important task of raising Foundation money to fund our contribution to the Library renovation. Being present at the creation, they led the design of the fundraising effort–from the solicitation materials to the Giving Tree recognizing our donors–and orchestrated and participated in the outreach to the community for donations. Under their leadership, the Branch Out Campaign raised over $167,000, a most notable accomplishment, particularly in these economically difficult times. With the completion of Phase One of the Library renovation, Latane and Faison have decided to concentrate their considerable talents and energy on other things, and have submitted their resignations to the Friends Board. We thank them, applaud their success, and wish them well as they continue to support the Friends and the Library.
