As the Board Chair of the Humboldt Area Foundation, I want to assure you that our focus and mission remain unchanged ("Town Dandy," Nov. 18). The North Coast Region can count on us to be a philanthropic cornerstone, lending our support in areas of community and economic development where there is a good opportunity to affect the lives of individual community members and where we have value to add.
While there were some difficulties in the working relationship between Kathy Moxon and Peter Pennekamp, two highly regarded professionals, the HAF board is very interested in continuing the community work that Kathy Moxon has been doing, and Kathy and the HAF are talking about how that might look.
For more information on what Humboldt Area Foundation is about, take a look at our newly released yearbook which illustrates how over 600 HAF funds and their supporters serve our North Coast communities. For a copy, call 442-2993 or stop by the HAF offices: 373 Indianola Road, Bayside (at Indianola cutoff).
