The RVNA Board of Directors began a new term on July 1, bidding farewell to three “retiring” members and welcoming new members aboard. Stepping down are Betsy Brand, Mary Jones, and Joyce Ligi who each completed two consecutive terms in June. Returning member Marcie Coffin rejoins after a brief hiatus, and new members Linda MacDonald and Carolyn Nolan began their terms at the first meeting on July 31.
