Kimball named president of LCAC

By C.J. Barbre

It's no secret that Mayor Pro-Tem Pam Kimball is a popular leader, verified by the fact that the appointed councilmember won her seat by a handy margin in the election this month.

What readers may not know is that Kimball was also recently named to replace Peggy Sanders as President of the Lindsay Cultural Arts Council.

"I think its partly because of my family's donation, so there's a commitment there from the beginning to the organization," Kimball said in reference to a former Ingoldsby home that was donated to the Arts Council for the non-profit organization to sell as a fund-raiser.

She thanked her friends on the council and especially Peggy Sanders who stepped down in concert with her husband's planned retirement as District 1 Supervisor at the end of this year.

"Peggy cares a lot about the continuity of the Arts Council and was looking for someone younger with some commitment and leadership abilities to take the helm for a lot of hard workers," Kimball said.

It will undoubtedly be an exciting year, as construction on the the long hoped for Lindsay Museum and Cultural Arts Center will begin in 2005 along with the new Lindsay Library on the vacant parcel at the corners of Samoa Street and Mirage Avenue.
