Lost Nation Theater Has So Many Hidden Heroes


As hard as it is for the actors (and some directors) amongst us to believe, some stars just don't want to be in the spotlight.
They prefer to go about their heroic work quietly, behind the scenes, without anyone knowing even - let alone making a fuss.

But we need to say Thank You - and so,  like it or not, we are making a fuss.

However, we will avoid using their personal photos!


The gorgeous photo of these beautiful flowers was sent to LNT by one of those "shy" folk who Lost Nation Theater wants to celebrate during #GivingTuesdayNow 
... So let's get the party started!

Chris Zahm & her husband Dr. Mike Zahm shared this photo from their garden yesterday.
They've been tending to LNT just as carefully for A Lot of years as donors, subscribers, and now Board Members!


LNT is so thankful for them - and all our Board Members for helping steer the organization, and keep us going with their "money-where-their-mouths-are" donations during this difficult time. 

It humbles us to know our Board Members are involved in the community in lots of ways - from libraries, to city councils, health clinics, select-boards, rec programs, service clubs, sustainability, music groups & concert series, preservation (historical and environmental), coat drives, and tree boards. 

We're proud to have such civic-minded people sustaining LNT with their vision, donations, and plain hard work.
(Plus uplifting photos of their gardens!)

So THANKS to our Current (would rather stay behind the scenes) Board: Laurie Callahan, Earl Fechter, Jessica Goodlin, Gary Haas, Carol Montgomery, Chris & Mike Zahm.

And Thanks to LNT's "emeritus" members & advisors (not exhaustive- just a more recent history):

Warren Kitzmiller, Dona Bate, Anthony Otis, Amy Willis, Emme Erdossy, Sue Zeller, Ronni Lopez, Carolyn Wesley, Rob Chapman, Aaron Retherford, Bronwyn Fryer, Dan B. Jones, Lynne Hansen, Lindsay Hill Kurrle, Cher Laston, Eric Michaels, Muffie Conlon, Andrea Stander, Betty T Lord, Linda Henzel, Lauren EA Aradi, George Hallsmith, Mich Kabay, Brooke Pearson, John Fricke, Robyn & Mitch, Jeanne Beckwith, Kimberly Ward, Al Kloeckner, Burton Dunning, Susan Plunkett-Dunning, Joan Black, Carol Martin,
and the list goes on. 

A very special acknowledgement for those dear ones who've passed:
Alan Weiss, Ted Richards, Mary Shriver, Jan Armstrong, Jane Sakovitz Dale, Edsel & Jean Hughes, Bob Johnson, and Margot George.
