The Nominating Committee is pleased to nominate the following individuals for election or re-election to the Board of Trustees.
New Trustees for Election:
Mary Wood (Woody) Lawson is nominated for a term expiring in 2023. Having lived in Hingham for 21 years, Woody and Sam moved to Duxbury in 2002 where they had summered since 1981. Sam’s family, being “old Duxburyites”, got Woody involved in sailing and racing on Duxbury Bay, tennis, and “all things Duxbury” – introducing some New England traditions such as Town Meeting, composting and going to the dump! Woody has also been involved at the Duxbury Art Association, St. John’s church and the Duxbury Yacht Club where she has chaired several committees and is a certificate member. Woody is from North Carolina and a graduate of the University of North Carolina – a proud “Tar Heel” indeed. She still has family in North Carolina and holds dear her family’s treasured and weathered beach cottage at Nags Head, on the Outer Banks. Woody has been active in her two daughters’ schools, ranging from Girl Scout Leader to co-chair of the Parents Association at Noble and Greenough School, a position that was ex-officio on the Board of Trustees. Other board experience includes: Junior League of Boston, South Shore – new member chairman; South Shore Natural Science Center, Norwell – auction chair; Duxbury Bay Maritime School – responsible for expanding Clifford Hall as a wedding/meeting/event venue, auction chair; Duxbury Garden Club – committee chair of Maxwell Garden (continuing), President (2017, 2018, 2019). Woody is a longtime member of the DRHS and has worked closely with the Reynolds-Maxwell Garden and has also been involved with KCH Christmas and the Summer Tea Party.
Interim Trustees for Election:
Drew Strawbridge is nominated for a term expiring in 2023. Raised in Duxbury, Drew and his wife Christy have long been involved with DRHS events through their love of Cedarfield and Clark’s Island. A realtor by profession, Drew has a deep background in sales and training, which he brings to the DRHS as Chair of the Membership Committee. An interim trustee since 2018, Drew is now being proposed as an elected Trustee.
David Uitti is nominated for a term expiring in 2023. David took over as Interim Treasurer in November 2019 and is now being proposed as an elected Trustee. David is a partner at Mirrione, Shaughnessy & Uitti law offices, where he specializes in civil litigation at both the trial and appellate levels, with an emphasis on condominium, construction, real estate, and land use matters. David’s family has been involved with the DRHS for many years, and he lives in a house that will soon be Dateboarded by the DRHS!
Trustee for Re-election:
Scott Casagrande is nominated for a term expiring in 2023.
The above candidates, per the By-laws of the Society, are nominated for the terms indicated. Also in accordance with the By-laws, members who intend to nominate a candidate from the floor of the annual meeting should mail notice to the Society’s office together with a commitment that the nominated person agrees to serve. The above nominees have demonstrated a genuine commitment to the well-being of the Society and the greater community.
