Funhouse names Gincig and Vollmer interim directors | Letter

We are excited to share with you the news that the Funhouse Board of Directors has decided to name us, Emilie Gincig and Jen Vollmer, as interim directors during the search for our new executive director!

As many of you know, we have both worked for the Funhouse in various roles over the years. Most recently Emilie as the drogram Director and Jen, working very closely with Krista, managing community engagement and proposal/report writing. While we are all sad to see Krista move on, we also feel confident that our organizational knowledge of the Funhouse, professional skill sets, and strong working relationships with the Funhouse board, staff, supporters, and island families, will ensure a smooth transition period.

During the facility remodel, we are working in a temporary office at the Our House building located across from the Orcas Food Co-op (on North Beach Road). To find us, enter through the main entrance located between Orcas Island Realty and the consignment store. Turn right at the first doorway, and proceed down the short hall. We’re in the middle office space. If you’ve gone down the ramp towards Mia’s restaurant, you’ve gone too far!

We would love to connect with you to address any Funhouse feedback, questions and/or comments you may have now and into the future. You can reach us at (360) 376-7177, by email, or drop by our new temporary office!

We are looking forward to providing you with updates during the executive director search and the facility remodel. Please know how much we all value and greatly appreciate your incredible support of the Funhouse children and organization over the years. Thank you for making the Funhouse such a vital component of our community!

Emilie Gincig, Jen Vollmer
