We are so pleased to welcome Roberta Schmidt to the LHF team! Roberta actually started as our new Development Director in early April, so many of you might have already had the opportunity to meet her as she’s been getting acquainted with the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and the community as a whole. Roberta served as Executive Director of the Diabetes Foundation Inc. in Paramus for nearly a decade, managing to grow the organization considerably in that time. And we’re confident she can make great things happen here at the LHF as well!
Not only does Roberta have a wealth of experience in the nonprofit world, both as an employee and a volunteer, she also has deep roots in New Jersey, with degrees from Montclair State University and Rutgers University. She is a delight to chat with, as she has lots of stories to tell, insights to share, as well as some adorable photos of her beautiful baby grandchildren!
You can meet her yourself at our LHF Annual Meeting (6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4, at the Garden State Yacht Club), at the Block Party on May 12 at Hopatcong State Park, or at another LHF event in the coming weeks and months. (If you want to reach out to her directly, her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.)
So please join us in celebrating the arrival of the newest member of our team, and feel free to welcome Roberta to the Lake Hopatcong scene!
