“See You Later, Gary!”

Posted on : 01 Jul 2019 | No Comments

During his last few days at KANDU, clients and staff at both locations showed their appreciation to Gary Bersell for his 13 years of dedicated service as Executive Director. Several clients shared memories, songs and heartfelt farewells amongst the group and presented a collective gift, a copper wind spinner, as a reminder of his many friends at KANDU. Clients from KANDU’s Increased Support Program also gifted Gary a beautiful handmade light box.

There is no doubt that Gary made a huge impact on, not only the organization as a whole, but the lives of both clients and staff individually. We are grateful for his dedication to KANDU’s mission, genuine kindness and uplifting sense of humor.

A celebration for Gary’s retirement will be held this Sunday, June 30th from 2-5pm at The Armory. Donations can be made to the Gary Bersell Advised Fund, an allocation of KANDU’s Endowment Fund in which Gary will have input on the use and disbursement.
