The Incumbents for Election 2016
Ray Brewster has been a UVFC member for several years, and has served on the Board for the last three years. He originally joined a UVFC working committee on the building and facilities, and helped guide and bring resources to the last three years’ structural reinforcements, the roofing and siding repair and painting, and various other improvements. (UVFC is blessed to have the in-house staff to oversee this work.)
Ray worked in the field of affordable housing for a third of a century, including 25 years working primarily in Vermont, along the entire length of the Connecticut River Valley, from Windham County to Caledonia County. He currently does independent projects in Montpelier and Morrisville, VT. Ray lives in Lyme, NH.
Ray currently contributes to the WILLING HANDS food salvage and donation group, picking up food and bringing it to important agencies, housing developments, and people in need.
Having grown up in Woodstock, VT, I was thrilled to return to the Upper Valley to raise my family in such a vibrant community. Joining the UVFC Board of Directors is a way for me to be more involved in the community and to give back to it. I have been on the UVFC Board for a few months, finishing out the year for a Board director who resigned, and I hope to complete a full term so that I can contribute more to the Co-op and its community values.
Hello, I’ve been a Co-op board member for three years now. I’ve learned so much about our amazing co-op and I proudly put my name in for another three years. I’ve been an Upper Valley resident for almost 20 years, and I’ve been shopping at the co-op for almost that long. Going back to my pastry chef roots, I recently started a small candy company, Vermont Amber Organic Toffee. I have two teens living at home (one of whom works at the Co-op). When not cooking yummy dinners with cool coop ingredients, I enjoy kayaking, hiking and snowboarding and many more of the outdoor pursuits the Upper Valley has to offer.
Don’t miss the Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 1st from 5 to 9pm!
