A Message from the President

July 2021




Hello dear friends,

It’s finally summer!  Everything is bright, sparkling, and washed clean by spring rains.  With the restrictions of the pandemic starting to lift, our attitude and approach to life is brighter and more hopeful, too.  We all are looking forward to being able to be together in the fall.

VAHS continues to work on upcoming projects this summer as we plan for the reopening of the Depot Campus, a new lecture series, a holiday luncheon, the 2022 Giving Challenge, and some other fun social events.

On a personal note, I am on sabbatical until November, thanks to the support of the wonderful VAHS Board of Directors.  Special thanks go out to our Vice President, Betty Intagliata, who has agreed to cover for me as I take some time off.  I’m sending you a few photos so you can see what it’s like up here in rural up-state New York in the summer.  As you can see, life is pretty laidback and relaxing.


Looking forward to a busy, productive fall and winter session, I wish you all a summer filled with health and happy times.
Pardon me…I hear my hammock calling me…..

Warmest regards to all,
Sue
