Bill 2

We are saddened by the passing of Lifetime Director, William (Bill) Sant.  Bill was a dear friend of the Institute and was involved in many capacities, most notably as Board President from 1977 – 1979, and was elected as a Lifetime Director in 2011. He and his wife Caroline were always incredibly generous to the Institute and could often be found at Institute events with a smile. He will be missed by many. 

More on his life,  and memorial service information can be found here:





The Institute is sad to share the news of the passing of Institute volunteer and friend, Elsie Meyers. Elsie and her husband, Bob, were deeply involved with the Institute. They gave generously of their time and talents, helping to lay a foundation for the Institute today. Elsie was a trailblazer, a woman of conviction, and an inspiration to many. We will all miss her dearly.

Please join Elsie’s family and friends at a remembrance luncheon on September 21 from 11:00 – 2:00 at the Seven Gables Inn in Clayton.  More on Elsie’s life, click




Please join us in remembering the life of former Board member, Margaret “Peggy” Shepley. Peggy came on the Board of Directors in 1971 and served in a number of capacities, but most notably as Chair of the Nominating Committee in 1977, helping to create a bright future for the Institute. We are grateful for her generosity and service, and she will be dearly missed.
