A big welcome is extended to long-time Wilmington resident, Ruth Brindle, as she assumes the role of Co-Director for Main Street. Ruth will work with Co-Director, Darcy Reynolds, to jointly lead the organization.
“I’m really excited to work on initiatives that showcase our community and its history. This job is a combination of the aspects I like best: collaboration, historic preservation, creating unique local events, and showing off the wonderful things about our local community, “ Ruth explains.
Well known in Wilmington through her 14 year career at Wilmington College, where she was the Director of the Quaker Heritage Center and Coordinator of the Westheimer Peace Symposium, Ruth is excited to bring her experience to Main Street. “Finding new and different ways to reach out to the community, as well as organizing major annual events, were large parts of my work at Wilmington College. Those experiences and the networks I developed will be great assets for my work with Main Street Wilmington.”
In addition, Ruth has also volunteered extensively with local groups like the Clinton County Regional Planning Commission, the Historic Murphy Theatre, the Ohio Local History Alliance, the Wilmington City Records Commission, and the Wilmington City Zoning Task Force.
Ruth fills the vacancy left by past Co-Director, Julie Bolton, who left the organization to expand her creative design business.
