I first fell happily into the PTV family web in 1990 when Paul used the momentum of the upcoming Bicentennial of Vermont Statehood to create PTV’s Third Century Fund, intentionally short-lived but seeking non-ephemeral, long-term community strengthening effects. Subsequently I joined the PTV board c. 1993 – Gadzooks! More than a quarter of a century ago! – and that has made all the difference in my having a clue to enduring Vermont community values and evolving challenges and opportunities. I am proud to have helped strengthen the PTV Director’s Fund, and now am dedicated to helping to grow the new Paul Bruhn Fund. For many years now I have been the PTV board member who also serves on the Shelburne Farms board, a long-term, strategic partnership. Onwards!
