TACF Annual Meeting

The Tyler Area Community Foundation held its annual meeting last night to appoint members to new terms on the board and to elect officers for the board.  We would like to welcome Kristie Johnson to the board.  Kristie will be replacing Trent Hess on the board.  We would also like to thank Trent for his 3 years on the board.  The board elected following individuals to serve as officers:  Tim O'Leary, Chair; Sandy Enemark, Vice-Chair; Gary Manson, Treasurer; and Joan Jagt, Secretary.  Other members of the board include:  April Thomas, Robert Wolfington, Glen Peterson, Joyce Dass and Kristie Johnson.

In other news, we were excited to hear that the Swimming Pool Project had received a donation from an anonymous donor in the amount of $25,700.  We want to thank that donor and all of the other donors throughout the year for their donations and their commitment to Tyler Area and foundation projects.

The board also opened up a new project fund for the Tyler Area Food Shelf which is looking at remodeling the former Chat and Chew building on Main Street.  Currently, the food shelf is operating out of the back of The Rock as it looks for a new home.

If you would like to donate to the Food Shelf project, Swimming Pool Project or the Foundation's Endowment Fund, you may send your donation to:  TACF, PO Box 239, Tyler, MN  56178 and indicate on the check or in a note which project fund you would like to support with your donation.

On behalf of the TACF Board, we would like to thank the Tyler Area Residents for their continued support of the Foundation and the Community of Tyler.  THANK YOU!
