Deb became an associate board member in 1991 at the suggestion of Carolyn Zinn.
She served two terms on the board from 1992-1998. Â AsÂ a Board member, Deb chaired the committee for “homecoming weekend.”
It was her vision that this event would become more than a community affair and have national significance.Â With her help, the event was given a new name (“New Deal Festival”) andÂ it was advertised in new markets.Â Â Â The New Deal Festival continues to thrive thanks to Deb’s vision.
HerÂ expertise and assistance withÂ the endowment fund has also been vital to the success of AHI.
Currently, Â Deb handles fundraising and AHI event publicity.
Deb’s tireless dedication to AHI is greatly appreciated!
