RESIGNATION:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank my fellow board members, both past and present, and to all the Grandmont residents who supported the Art Fair. After six years as the event organizer, I’ve decided to resign to move forward with entrepreneurship opportunities and family reasons that require my full attention. This is definitely bittersweet, but I will still be around as a board member and to help organize certain events. It has truly been a pleasure and I look forward to seeing you soon and or working with you at some capacity in the community.
