    Dear NCAARD and NCAP Friends:

    As 2018 winds to an end, I find myself composing my last web page for NCAARD. I started this job 8 years ago when I was a stay-at- home Mom and substitute teacher. I knew a lot of people in East Muskingum Schools and, as a Villager, knew a lot of people in New Concord which made it easy to pick up the reins from the good folks who created the Arts and Recreation program. Throughout my tenure I met many, many more of you – probably my favorite part of the job.

    My children are 8 years older now and busy with their many activities. As chief cheerleader and chauffeur, I no longer have the time, or energy to devote to NCAARD. After much prayer and thought I decided it was time for another young, enthusiastic person to step up and make NCAARD even better. I’ve had the assistance of a fantastic Board of Directors whose diverse experience and creativity made it much easier to do my job. I know they will do the same for my successor.

    I’d like to thank you all for your patience, kindness and support. It’s been a terrific 8 years. I’ve enjoyed getting to spend time with you. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the honor of working with your children and the chance to help them grow into some pretty amazing young people.

    See you around!!

    Judy Beetem
