SPB Board Updates
On Saturday evening September 12th, the Save Popponesset Bay Board gathered for an outside, socially distant dinner to honor out-going president Mike Oleksak. Mike has tirelessly served SPB and the community for over 20 years. Mike will remain on the board and assures us that he is not going anywhere. After 20 years he felt it was the right time to step down as the SPB leader. A bell, with the inscription:
“Mike Oleksak 20+ Years of Leadership Save Popponesset Bay”,
was presented to Mike as a token of our gratitude for his many years of service to SPB and our community. Thanks to Mike’s vision of “preserving our happy place for generations to come”, our mission remains strong.
Mike has left huge shoes to fill. So huge that it will take two of us!
Kathy Cramer and Marlene Perkins are serving as the co-leaders of the SPB Board. Working with Kathy and Marlene is an amazing team of community volunteers who will continue the work of protecting and enhancing Popponesset Bay and the Popponesset Spit.
