The Chemainus Festival of Murals Society (CFOMS) has announced the appointment of Dee Kinnee as Community Engagement Manager.
The objective of this new position is to increase awareness of the mural program and to garner community support, said CFOMS President Tom Andrews.
“We’re delighted to have Dee as part of the team. This is a new position, and her job will be to build community support for the mural program,” he said.
A Chemainus resident for over 25 years, Kinnee has a reputation as a community leader, having worked with Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society, Chemainus Business Improvement Association, Chemainus Theatre Festival, Chemainus Gardens, and Chemainus Village.
“I’m eager to get started,” Kinnee said. “My first task is to connect with local businesses and residents to implement a membership drive.
“This year the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn is sponsoring our membership drive,” she added. “They’ve contributed fantastic incentives. New and renewing members will earn guest room and pool discounts, free breakfasts and more.”
Andrews says these membership benefits will be available only for a limited time. “If you would like to learn more about the mural program and how you can be involved, contact Dee right away at (250) 246-0252 or FOMmembership@muraltown.com.”
