Farewell, Kelcy!

20140628_202459At the end of December, SDCC will have to bid farewell to Kelcy Siddall.

Kelcy joined SDCC as Community Engagement Coordinator in March 2014. In his time here he has played a big part in coordinating our volunteer-run committees, facilitating neighborhood communications, and planning events like the Better Block Project, summer concerts, and Homecoming.

Unfortunately, due to a significant reduction in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding – our largest single funding source – SDCC will reduce full-time staff from 2 to 1 at the end of 2014. Kelcy asked me to share this with you:

It has been a pleasure to serve you as Community Engagement Coordinator. Over the past few months, I’ve met some of the most creative, most dedicate and friendliest people in the city! You – the residents of Skinker DeBaliviere- are the reason why this neighborhood is so fantastic!  I will not be a stranger; I will continue to support the neighborhood in future events. Thanks for everything! -Kelcy

Please join me as we thank Kelcy for his service to the neighborhood and wish him all the best in his next adventure! Through the end of December he can be reached at kelcy.siddall@skinker-debaliviere.com or (314) 862-5122.
