• Board of Trustees
The Nutley Irish Board of Trustees would like to welcome to the board, new member Brenda Sherman. Brenda was appointed Trustee by the President for the role that was created by the resignation of Dan Thompson. Dan is still involved in the club and will remain our web developer, but has stepped down as trustee for personal reasons. We thank Dan for his service to the club, and look forward to continuing to see him at the meetings and events. Please join us in providing a warm welcome to Brenda at our November meeting.
