A very Happy New Year and a warm Whallonsburg welcome! After an extensive search we are pleased to have hired Emma Gibbs as our full-time Manager. Emma grew up in Westport and moved back there this year after living and working for eight years in Alaska and Vermont as a youth advocate and social worker. She and her husband, Matt, started Ledge Hill Brewing Company and Emma has also been working as a consultant for marketing and publicity with several Westport organizations.
Like many local residents, Emma has memories of the Grange from her childhood and is looking forward to bringing more activities for children and young people here. (She has two of her own who will help her with that!) Emma has great ideas for programs and looks forward to collaborating with other groups on projects and events. She will start her new position in mid-January.
The Grange is thrilled to bring Emma Gibbs on board as we start a new year full of exciting opportunities!
