Dear Friends of the Griffin Museum of Photography,
Last month, the Griffin announced the retirement of our wonderful and talented executive director, Paula Tognarelli. Her retirement is effective at the end of the year. The Griffin has been very lucky to have had Paula at our helm for well over ten years. 
During Paula’s tenure, the Museum has grown into a powerhouse for the photographic arts by showcasing the works of both celebrated and up and coming photographers, and by conducting in person and online classes and lectures ranging from the history of photography to avant-garde photography and techniques.  
The Griffin has not only survived these crazy times, but it has also prospered by greatly increasing the number of exhibitions it conducted at multiple venues and by growing membership and attendance at all lectures and classes. During this time, Paula has managed to find enough money to replace some of our aging building systems and keep our wonderful facility looking good and working well.  
All of these achievements are the result of Paula’s tireless dedication and commitment to the Griffin Museum of Photography. In short, the Griffin would not be what it has become without Paula’s leadership and her extraordinary skills.
We think it would be a wonderful gesture for all of our Griffin friends and family to make donations to the Griffin in Paula’s honor. What a tribute this will be for acknowledging her hard work and dedication to photography and our Museum.
We are asking you to make a tax-deductible donation to the Griffin Museum of Photography in honor of Paula Tognarelli and her many years of devotion to the Museum. The money will be well spent, and it will honor Paula’s achievements. Please send what you can as soon as you can before Paula can find out what we are doing. Please send your donation to Crista Dix, our very able Associate Director.  
All contributions are tax-deductible. On behalf of the Board of Directors, we thank you.
