“I have had the fortunate opportunity to be a Trustee of the Atheneum for the last 9 years, how lucky am I? When I drive into town every morning, I always marvel at how majestic our beautiful building is in the center of town, watching over the comings and goings of so many residents and visitors.
I love the Atheneum because it represents all the good Nantucket has to offer. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, or how you arrived, the Atheneum is a place for all to either access the world through the internet, take a load off your feet and read a periodical or come expand your mind with the numerous creative programs taking place. Basically, it’s my favorite place to be!”
