If you haven’t already, please give a warm Walden welcome to our new Business Administrator Norma Royalty. Norma is assuming accounting and business affairs responsibilities, and she comes to us with 25 years experience at Big O Tires as a Regional Manager of Sales Support (covering 50 franchise stores) and recent stints with Lilly’s Bistro and ProMaster Contracting. She’s served on committees for the Southern Indiana Women’s Community Foundation, is quite the baker (but not pies – I already asked), and she already has a Walden Theatre magnet on her car. Norma has a daughter, a son, and three grandchildren, and she lives in New Albany.

Previous Business Administrator Deirdre Buckley recently accepted another job, but she’s helped us a lot through the transition so you likely noticed very little change in our operations. Of course, we’ll miss Deirdre and we owe so much to her considerable skills as a bookkeeper and her enthusiasm for engaged, proactive management of Raffles and Silent Auctions. Thank you Deirdre for three excellent years, and best of luck in all you do!
