Happy New Year!
In October? Yes! September 30th marked the end of another fiscal year and FY2016 started October 1st. We don’t want to let FY2015 end without thanking some of the “unsung heroes” that make it possible for us to do what we do. Without these folks—and many others—we wouldn’t get much done. So the SFCMC staff extends a big THANK YOU to IT Specialist Carlos Trivino (EVER/DRTO/BISC) and Bilal Arshad (Contractor – NuAxis Innovations, NPS Office of the Chief Information Officer) for their ready help in FY15 implementing our new virtual server and ICMS 8.20 upgrade. SUPER SPECIAL THANKS to Heather Walker, Michelle Marc, Tina Collins, and Hayley Matteson in our parks’ budget offices as they keep us on track while we try to maximize our fiscal resources. The specialists at the South MABO enjoy the (usually) thankless task of awarding our many contracts for everything from cannon conservation to museum cabinetry. Dafina Williams, Sally Hendricks, and the rest of the SHRO staff helped us bring on staff and volunteers. SER Chief of Museum and Archives Services Mary Troy always provides moral (and more often financial!) support we can’t do without. And we certainly can’t forget the MASSIVE GRATITUDE we have for Linda Irey and Julie Abreu who wear many, many hats but always made sure we got paid in FY2015!
