Board Comings and Goings by Br. Selby Coffman

Capstone has a truly phenomenal Board of Directors; eleven dedicated volunteers, each regularly committing substantial volunteer time and financial support to make Capstone go. We are part of a larger network of returned Mission volunteers and supporters who are equally important to our ministry. Despite our varied backgrounds, we work together with a remarkable sense of harmony and shared purpose.

Dar Wagner of Twin Falls, one of the original Board members, is stepping down from the Board. She has been Vice President of the Board. Dar has served Capstone in a number of ways, including three mission trips to Tijuana, a variety of fundraising efforts, web site work, maintenance of our mailing list, and newsletter layout. She has graciously agreed to continue with the latter two, and to help in other ways also. Many thanks, Dar!

We welcome new board members Molly Bullock and Eric Adolfson. Both have been dedicated participants in the blooming group of Boise Capstone supporters that Carol Brown, Capstone Coordinator, and others have so ably brought together.

Molly is part of the total Crozier family Capstone effort (Reed, Colleen, Patrick and Katie have all been down to Tijuana numerous times and helped out on many fronts). Molly works for Hewlett Packard in Boise. She arranged to have their corporate funds match individual donations from HP employees. She has been very active with fundraising and publicity as well. She and her husband Guy are expecting their first child in the near future.

Eric Adolfson is a veteran Missions trip volunteer, having gone on eight trips to lend his carpentry expertise. An avid outdoorsman, Eric has worked for City Planning in Caldwell and for the Bureau of Land Management. He and his wife Kari are also expecting; a second child to join their two-year-old, Caleb.

I am stepping down as Capstone President of the Board, though I will remain on Board. It has been a real joy to work with such a passionate, involved, and yet highly collaborative and flexible group of people. There is no doubt that Capstone will continue to develop and increase our ability to serve Christ as He appears in the poorest of the poor in Tijuana and in the children of St. Joseph’s Home.
