Three New Board Members
Sam Patton, Editor
Winter 2010 issue of Trustee
At our November meeting, the Board elected three new members: Mark Friden, Norm Gallagher and Brian Steele, who join Adria Ripka as the four newest members.
Mark is in the North Country System, and is Treasurer of the Clifton Community Library. He worked part-time in the Suffern Free Library in Rockland while in High School. He has been a manager in a lumber yard, a New York State Corrections Officer, and is now the Justice of the Peace for the Town of Clifton. Mark has been active in economic development efforts, and served on the board of a local hospital. In addition to his work to try to expand his library’s service area, he has time for genealogy, boating, photography and local history.
Norm was elected to the Port Jervis Free Library Board of Trustees in 2001 and has served as President for six years. He was elected to the Ramapo Catskill Board of Trustees in 2006 and has served on several commmittees of the Board. He served in the Marine Corps from 1946-48 and again in 1950-51. He graduated from Albany College of Pharmacy in 1954, and still works part time as a Pharmacist. He has three children and several grandchildren, and is an active member of Drew United Methodist Church.
Brian is a Trustee of the George F. Johnson Memorial Library, in the Four County System. He attended Broome County Community College and SUNY Cortland. He has been a comptroller for a food service company in Syracuse, and is currently Corporate Comptroller at Dataflow in Binghamton.
We welcome them, and are looking forward to working with them.
