Evelyn Goodell

Director

Evelyn has lived in Hills since 1971 where she and her husband built their home and raised their daughter. In the 1970s she was a teacher at Goat Mountain School, a parent cooperative independent school, and was involved as a parent in the 1990s. Evelyn was the librarian at Nakusp Public Library for 30 years, a job she loved. She has volunteered with many groups including the Hidden Garden Gallery, Lucerne’s PAC, the Silverton Gallery, Hills Recreation Society, the community choir, and the contemplative Room to Breathe program at Lucerne School, and since she has retired she is now a volunteer at Nakusp Public Library. “When I joined the Legacy Society, I became a member of the Granting Committee and was impressed with the process and people involved. I didn’t know anything about community foundations, but I am now a dedicated fan.”
