We would like to thank Nancy Salvia for her service, leadership and support of Project Beautiful as it has grown these past three years! Nancy is stepping down after two years as Board Chair, to dedicate more time to her recently elected Rochester City Council position as well as several other philanthropic interests. THANK YOU NANCY!

We are excited to welcome Cindy Haebler as the new Board Chair! Cindy has been an active Board Member since October 2015. We look forward to this next chapter for Project Beautiful!

We toasted the “Passing of the Crown” at a lovely dinner at 220 Merrill where we also got to know several Board candidates!
