The Board of Directors for the non-profit community theater organization, Theatre 29, held its yearly reorganization meeting December 10 and elected new officers and Board Members for 2014. Re-elected for two-year terms were Cindy Daigneault, Gary Daigneault, Marty Neider, Mandi Pushkar, and Frances Wright. Cindy Ross, who had served as the Board Secretary and a Board member in past years, was elected to fill a seat vacated by Tom Highfill. They will join incumbent board members Brian Tabeling, Kathryn Ferguson, Ken Palmer, Mary Phelps, and Robin Schmelling. In reorganizing for 2014, the board of directors voted unanimously to re-elect Brain Tabeling as the Board President for a fourth term, Gary Daigneault was named as vice-president, Robin Schmelling as Board Secretary, and Francis Wright as Treasurer.
