The Clarion County Community Foundation meet on September 21, 2011, to take action on a number of items.  We accepted with regret the resignation from our Board of Jane Schautz who has served since our second meeting April 18, 2007.  Jane will continue active in community affairs, so all is not lost.

We approved a non-endowed CCCF Discretionary Fund for donations toward current and future operational needs such as brochures.  This new fund must now be approved by the Bridge Builders Community Foundations Board of Trustees.

We heard from the BBCF Board donations to our CCCF Unrestricted Endowment Fund from April through July 2011 were $1,270.00  The market value of the CCCF funds as of May 31, 2011, were Mary E. Shaner Scholarship Fund $118,262.85; Rimersburg Medical Center Endowment Fund $52,276.64; and the CCCF Unrestricted Endowment Fund $7,258.13

Our next CCCF Board meeting will be at 5:15pm on November 16, 2011.

Pictured above, from left to right, are Bill Kaufman who returns to the Board as a member after his stint as Interim Executive Director; Trenton Moulin who is our newly appointed Executive Director of BBCF; and Barry McCauliff who as Vice President presided at the CCCF Board meeting.  Charles Marlin

The Trustees of Bridge Builders Community Foundations have selected Trenton E. Moulin as Executive Director and he is already on the job.  For many years Steve Kosak was our Executive Director, but he is now with PNC Bank in Oil City; and for the transition period, we had Bill Kaufman as Interim Executive Director.  Both Kosak and Kaufman pledge support and counsel to our new director.

Moulin is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, and most recently was Director of Development for the Allegheny Region Chapter of the American Red Cross.  His resume included two years as a pirate in the Caribbean, but the Trustees discounted the claim as a juvenile fantasy.

His BBCF office is 213 Seneca Street in Oil City PA 16301; and his email is trentonmoulin@gmail.com   He can be reached at the office at (814) 677-8687 or by cell at (412) 978-6841.  He will be working with the affiliate boards of the Clarion County Community Foundation, Forest County Community Foundation, and Venango Area Community Foundation.

Jeanne Best continues her work with BBCF, however under the new title of Operations Director.  With her new title, she is authorized to carry a handgun in church, campus, camp, club, and curbside.  She can be reached at (814) 677-8687 or jeanne_vacf@verizon.net

Pictured above are the officers of BBCF and the new Executive Director.  From left to right are President Susan Williams of Rouseville,  Executive Director Trent Moulin of Oil City,  Secretary Lynn McCaslin of Tionesta, Vice-President Charles Marlin of Knox, and Treasurer Jason Woolcock of Oil City.  Charles Marlin
