As some of you may know, Jared Libby and Didi de Almeida, our beloved Director of Operations and Business Manager, will be leaving The Brick House this fall in order to pursue their dreams.
Jared Libby began his time at The Brick House as an AmeriCorps member, splitting his work between BH and Montague Catholic Social Ministries (MCSM). Jared went on to oversee the Teen Center, engaging youth with music, art, technology, intelligence, and humor. After many years, Jared stepped into his role as Director of Operations, keeping The Brick House functioning and viable from the top level.
Didi de Almeida, our fabulous on-the-mark Business Manager, has worked to keep The Brick House finances in order, providing information for quarterly and annual grant reports, and assisting us in bringing in the funds required to operate at full force.
Gratitude Celebration: On Thursday, November 2nd from 5:00-8:00pm, The Brick House Board of Directors and Staff invite you to 24 Third St. to enjoy some time with Jared and Didi, and thank them for their stellar work in this community. We’ll have lots of delicious things to eat, music to hear, and a few visuals too. We encourage everyone who has been touched by their work to come by for a visit… Are you a community member who participated in BH programs and events? Have you worked with Jared or Didi in an effort to better the community through music, art, or the skate park campaign? Have you had the pleasure of working alongside Jared as a collaborating partner from one of Franklin County’s many social service entities? Are you a current or former youth participant, staff, or board member? Please come join us if you have been moved by the impact that Jared and Didi have had in order to make The Brick House, and this community, a better place.
Folks are welcome to drop by anytime during the Open House Celebration for a visit. Remarks from Board members, and any other interested guests, will take place at 6:30. We will have guest/memory books available for both, as well as card baskets.
Mark your calendars and take this opportunity to thank Jared and Didi! See You November 2nd!
