2017 Coordinator and Board Farewells

The board of directors of Somerville Open Studios is pleased to welcome back Ellie Laramee-Byers as the coordinator for the next annual event, to be held on May 6 and 7, 2017. Ellie was the coordinator for SOS 2015 and is excited to be back. She and SOS have great things in store so expect to hear more soon.

At the same time, we're wishing a fond farewell and thank you to two departing board members. Over the years, Suzanne Lubeck has served as Vice President, President, and head of sponsorship, developing mutual support and enthusiasm between local businesses and SOS. Nick Shectman has served as Treasurer and headed up trolleys, and was coordinator for SOS 2008 and 2009. Suzanne and Nick aren't going far -- they'll both be volunteering, and exhibiting, at SOS 2017.
