Distinctly Gardiner: Adventure, Inspiration, Spirit, And A 501c3
By Liz Glover Wilson
From Issue 35: Summer 2017
Founded by a group of passionate local residents, The Gardiner Gazette has kept us connected; providing our community with updates on the wild, the scenic, the arts, the culture, the history, the people and the places that make us distinctly Gardiner. Penned by volunteer writers who are local residents, the Gardiner Gazette gives voice to the many layers of our beautiful town, allowing us to highlight, explore and celebrate the things that matter.
As we move into a new phase of our existence, two founding members and a host of regular contributors remain, and are joined by an enthusiastic new group of talented people. We are forever grateful to one founding member and former resident, Nadine Lemmon, who supported this vision and helped to create the Gardiner Gazette as a non-profit through her operating foundation—the Gunk Foundation—a 501c3. It seems that few readers were aware of the Gazette’s non-profit status, and we feel it is important to make that known now.
The Gardiner Gazette’s mission, back in Issue #1, in the winter of 2009, was to “come together as a community in those tough times, to sustain a dialogue about strengthening our community, developing community programs, and caring for and helping those who live around us.” Times are better now! We add to that mission a desire to deliver a publication that celebrates the adventure, inspiration and spirit of our town.
