What a wonderful summer this has been! I hope you have been blessed by the abundance of sunshine and with treasured moments with friends and family. This summer, we welcomed Maren Diamond as the newest member of the Advancement Team. She will focus on managing our databases, including updating our alumni database. We are very excited to have her on our team.
We are also busy planning our first ever Homecoming event! All are invited to campus for this fun reunion on Saturday, Oct. 24. It will boast a full day of activities including a tailgate-style lunch at Trinity, breakout sessions, campus tours, and an evening full of Trinity athletics. Online registration will be available soon. Save the date and stay tuned for more details. We hope you can make it!
We're also seeking feedback. We'd like to know what types of information you'd like to receive in The Fount. We'd also love to hear news and updates about you and your fellow alumni. Please send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
Alumna Annie Fortnum, currently residing in Brier, Wash., is a woman of many different skill sets. She is a Master Gardener, a skilled musician who plays the harp, and is one of the founders of Annie's Kitchen.
With the help of a community group from Edmonds Lutheran Church 11 years ago, Fortnum helped create Annie's Kitchen, a community kitchen that offers free meals to those in need. The kitchen also offers childcare during meals, and sometimes clothing, too. Fortnum recounted that the first meal they prepared only had about four people show up. Now the kitchen serves up to 200.
Although recently retired from being the host at Annie's Kitchen, Fortnum is still actively involved in her role as Chair of the Board. Fortnum's commitment to this program is a great example of living out the gospel through serving her community.Click here to continue reading.
