The CAN DO Community Foundation’s Board of Directors recently held its annual meeting at Ferrwood Camp in Drums. The board discussed the progress of its many ongoing projects and heard of the recipients of several scholarships it awards annually.
The CAN DO Community Foundation announced the kickoff of its 2021 fund drive, which will continue its restoration journey at Ferrwood Music Camp with bandshell upgrades as the beneficiary of the proceeds.
On Friday morning at Ferrwood Music Camp a “thank you” breakfast was held recognizing the many individuals who were involved in replacing the kitchen that became obsolete. A photo was circulated showing the griddle refusing to warm up as a few hundred pancakes were waiting to be prepared! At the invitation of Phil Latella, music camp director and chef, a “maiden” breakfast was prepared as an expression of thanks to fellow volunteers and the CAN DO Community Foundation. Board member Chris Stamatopoulos mentioned, “there are so many known and unknown people who have taken part in this project that became much more complicated than ever imagined”. Phil was assisted by a volunteer kitchen crew that return for every camp.
The CAN DO Community Foundation’s Annual Fund Drive Chairman, Earl C. Berger, is pleased to announce that the foundation reached its 2020 fund drive goal. The proceeds are benefiting the Ferrwood Music Camp.
CAN DO announced that Director of Administration Nancy Stasko will retire on March 31 after nearly 26 years of service with the economic development organization.
Stasko, who is the second-longest tenured employee in CAN DO’s history, was hired on April 3, 1995, to serve as administrative assistant to then-President and CEO Kevin O'Donnell and was eventually promoted to Director of Administration.
