Glenmeadow Announces New Board Member, Officer, Corporate Ambassadors

LONGMEADOW — At its annual meeting in November, Glenmeadow appointed a new member to its board of directors and welcomed five new corporate ambassadors to a team of several dozen.

Michael Tremble is the newest member of the nonprofit’s board. Dennis Fitzpatrick, formerly the board’s vice chair, is the new chair, replacing Dusty Hoyt, who will remain as an ex officio member.

Tremble joins Fitzpatrick and the other officers — Amy Santarelli, treasurer, and Norm Smith, clerk — as well as members Naren Dhadmodharan, Crystal Diamond, John Gallup, Rabbi Jerome Gurland, Kelly Koch, Annette Lerner, Paul Marchese, Aaron Mendelson, and Paul Barden.

New corporate ambassadors for the life-plan community are Suzanna Haskins, Jacqueline Johnson, Erin Koebler, the Rev. Pam McGrath, and Grace Roy.

“We are pleased to welcome our new board members and corporators, and we are confident they will be as dedicated and hard-working as our current board,” Hoyt said. 

Tremble is executive vice president of Valley Communications Systems Inc. in Chicopee. He holds a bachelor’s degree in applied exercise science from Springfield College and is enrolled in a master’s in education program at Boston University.

Glenmeadow is a nonprofit life plan community — formerly known as a retirement community — and has a mission to serve seniors in the Greater Springfield region, whether they live on the Longmeadow campus or in their own homes.
