Karen was our Financial Manager for 24 years. She retired a few years back. Now she serves on SEVEN town and local boards, from Rotary, where she has long spearheaded our combined efforts to help Nicaraguans, to affordable housing efforts and, well, when we caught up with her last week she had just mowed her not-small lawn. Karen told us she’s so tickled in her new NEWwoodworks kitchen, ash with a rich brown stain. "But now I have to cook”, she groused. Dang, Karen, we miss you so.
