To my NMC Colleagues and Friends:

Thank you to those of you who were able to attend the exhibition opening and my retirement event on June 8th.

A very heart felt thank you to President Tim Nelson for his kind remarks and the Resolution of Appreciation naming me Founding Executive Director Emeritus of the Dennos Museum Center.  I hope that I may use that title to further the work of the Museum as I travel the world connecting opportunities for the Museum as my successor may wish to pursue.

It has been a privilege and an honor to have been invited to assist with the design and building of the Dennos over two phases and to give it life as a major cultural facility for the region and the state with an international reputation.

I wish my successor much success and will be there to offer support as needed and requested.

Marcia and I plan to remain in Traverse City for the foreseeable future.
