In Memoriam: Teresa Bello (Holley)

We lost an important Friend last month.   Teresa Bello, member, supporter, and wife of long-time former Chairman Hue Holley, died in early May.  Hue tells us, “Teresa was always supportive of my involvement with the Friends, and loved being in the Fells with our children.  She admired our volunteers for their contributions, and became friends with many.”  Thanks for all you’ve done over the decades, Teressa and Hue!
