Please join us to hear from Kayla Oakes, the new Executive Director for the Juan de Fuca Festival this Thursday, January 31st.  The meeting begins at noon and concludes about 1:15.  Come early if you'd like to order lunch.  Kayla will share her vision with us for the Festival and how she hopes to expand the foundation’s presence on the North Olympic Peninsula by attracting larger audiences from Port Townsend, Sequim and the West End.

Oakes, who has worked for numerous dance schools and theater companies on the West Coast, moved to Port Angeles from Boise, Idaho in 2005.

She teaches modern dance at the Ballet Workshop of Port Angeles, volunteers as a dance instructor at local schools and was recruited to coordinate JFFA’s Celebrate Diversity program.

Oakes said she applied for the directorship because her skills aligned with the position and because she was eager to “get back into the nonprofit world.”

If you'd like to participate but cannot join us in person, please feel free to use Go-To-Meeting and join SequimRotary.
