2010 saw the passing of Keith Stainton, a long-serving, stalwart member of our Board of Directors.  A bench in the garden adjacent to the lobby Gallery has been dedicated to Keith's memory - a private dedication took place November 23rd.  Pictured are members of the extended Stainton family and the Michael J.
