In organizations like the The Pearl S. Buck Birthplace Vista's play a vital role in developing new events, grant writing, program administration, along with a wide range of other responsibilities. Over the past year Stacie Gilmore has served as The Pearl Buck Birthplace Vista and has done an excellent job. She has been responsible for many ideas and projects in the public eye as well as behind the scenes. The Birthplace would not be where it is today without her assistance. Sadly, Stacie will be leaving us on December 11 to take a new assignment in the Marshall Islands.
With Stacie's absence the Board of Directors has already started the paper work to receive a new Vista for the 2010 year. The Board of Directors has been in contact with an individual that is very interested in working for the Birthplace in the coming year. We are currently waiting for all of the paper work to be processed so we can move closer to filling our Vista position.
