Last week, during the final board meeting of the 2023 Fiscal Year, the Safe Shores Board of Directors unanimously voted in new board member (and long-time supporter) Dian Holton. This meeting also marked the last for Board Chair Lynn J. English who has served on the board since 2016!
Please join us in thanking Lynn for her dedicated service over the last seven years, and welcoming Dian to the board! Read more about Dian below:
