The park for the people | The Green Village
Problem: 2021/10 – October
As it navigates the bizarre waters of the pandemic while maintaining a full range of activities, Village Green welcomes a new general manager.
“To me, The Village Green is indeed a park for the people.” Says Ashlie Mitchell-Lanning, new CEO of The Village Green. Ann Self, who has led The Village Green since 2012, will continue to work at The Village Green with Ashlie until December 2021 to ensure the transition is smooth, and all events and programs are as successful as they were at over the past 10 years.
The Village Green team and board of directors are in full swing, setting the stage for a season of fun family activities, community events and celebrating the beauty of our region’s fall foliage. “I am honored and excited to work alongside Ann and learn what makes The Village Green the favorite public space of our community,” said Mitchell-Lanning. “I can’t wait to see friends, family and neighbors come together in our beautiful park to rejoice and celebrate during my favorite season of the year!”
The Village Green continues with time-honored traditions and events throughout this fall and the holiday season ahead. However, throughout the pandemic, The Village Green strives to model social responsibility and protect the health and safety of the entire community.
