I came to the Arden Folk Gild for years before falling in love with my Arden house and moving to Arden in 1993.
INTEREST AND/OR SKILLS: I was elected to Arden Archives committee shortly after moving here and have served on the committee for almost 25 years. I have a deep interest in the history of the Ardens, the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Arts, and Georgist economics. It is my pleasure to run for another term for Arden Archives. I have served as secretary and treasurer for many years. I was involved in the fundraising and founding of the Arden Craft Shop Museum, which opened in the Craft Shop in 2004. I initiated the task of bringing a museum curator to the museum and holding an annual fundraising campaign to help maintain and support the archives and museum activities. I have attended the Small Museum Conference (Mid-Atlantic) for 10 years where I learn about small museums and how they work, network with other museum professionals and learn about new projects and ideas that can be applied in the Ardens from the many seminars and workshops held.
