On Sunday, February 18th we lost a dear friend and a long time supporter of the Ridgefield Theater Barn. If you live in Ridgefield you have been touched by all that Maureen has given to our town as our Treasurer but perhaps more importantly as one who worked tirelessly toward the betterment and beautification of our town from spring flowers to holiday lights at Christmas.
Maureen put her heart and soul into everything she did and the Theater Barn was just one of her passions. She was our Board Treasurer…that was her title. But she did so much more. Whatever needed to be done, Maureen was there lending a hand…picking up programs, helping with mailings, putting up posters, helping with the kids programs. Remember the tablecloths we used to have? Maureen spot treated and washed them after every show and made sure they were back on the tables with tea light candles, ready for the next show. Remember before Vendini? Maureen took all of the phone messages, processed the credit charges, assigned the tables making sure we got to sit with our friends…then made sure the volunteer in charge of the door had the schedule for the evening. And by the way, she was often that volunteer.
We are truly blessed to have worked with Maureen and to have had her as part or our Theater Barn family. Thank you, Maureen, for all you have given to our community, but thank you most of all for being our friend. Rest in Peace!
