DENMARK, ME –JULY 15, 2021 DAC Board Welcomes NEW Members and Thanks Allene Westleigh.
Denmark Arts Center welcomed three new members to the Board of Directors during their meeting last week. The Board also celebrated the work, dedication, and years of service Allene Westleigh generously gave as she ended her Board service.
Allene, former Denmark Postmaster, was there for the beginning of Denmark Arts Center. She worked for years with Dick & Mari Hook and Ralph & Lillian Lee-Morse with Reader’s Theater, growing audiences and children’s involvement. Allene was the first to ask if staff needed help with any aspect of running the arts center. She learned quick how to tend to backstage needs as well as front of the house. More than once the community enjoyed her deviled eggs at special events. What will be missed is her attention to detail and regulations and readiness to work the ticket desk at a moment’s notice. The Denmark Arts Center is a better place with Allene Westleigh having served for over 20 years.
The DAC Board welcomed Anne Munstedt who is affiliated with Androscoggin Health-Bella Pointe and currently serves on Moose Pond Association. A piano teacher, pianist, and singer, and community outreach volunteer, Anne brings her experience and passion for the arts to Denmark Arts Center.
Nancy Campbell is a member of Moose Pond Association, Cambridge Art Association, and the New Hampshire Art Association. She formerly served Park & Recreation Commissioner in Arlington, MA for seven years. Nancy is a photographer, with skills in special events and community service, which will be a great contribution to Denmark Arts Center and the Denmark community.
Our third new member is a familiar face to the DAC community, Mick Early. Seen on stage in several performances over the years, Mick brings his years of experience in the real estate industry, running Kayak Adventures business, and personable bartending skill to Denmark Arts Center. Mick has contribution his time and resource to DAC the last ten years. Now we are delighted for the opportunity to benefit from his guidance, as a Board member.
