Board Member Emeritus After serving on our board for over 17 years, we bid Tom farewell, but honor him as Board Member Emeritus. Tom successfully guided us through our early days before we were even a formal organization. He helped numerous businesses obtain TIF funding to help with renovation projects and offered his employees and equipment to clear snow off our sidewalks, making it safe for pedestrians. We wish Tom much happiness in his well deserved retirement.
