Fred DeLano, Treasurer
About Fred: Shirley and I vacationed in the Red Feather Lakes area for over 15 years, enjoying the past five summers in the GVM area. May of 2016 we moved to The Eagles Nest Ct GVM permanently from the plains of Manhattan Kansas. We fell more in love each year with the mountain vistas, wonderful people, and the unique history. We both have enjoyed being part of the many activi-ties in this area, especially the RF Historical Society. We have been a member for 5 years. My 31 year career with Kansas State University Extension was in the field of financial man-agement & business analysis with farm families. I also enjoyed a few years of banking. After retiring in 2001, Shirley doubled her tax & accounting business by buying an existing firm and I joined her in the business. The work with our many clients and volunteering provided enjoyment and fulfillment. I was Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee of the Riley County Historical Society, Co-Treasurer of the Riley County Genealogy Society, and Treasurer of the Kansas State Uni-versity Social Club.

About Sheila: After enjoying the tours and programs for years, I decided to become more involved. I have lived in Red Feather Lakes for 24 years and can’t imagine living anyplace else, especially a city. My great granddaughter and great grandson live in Seward, NE with their mom and dad, 2 dogs, 15 chickens on 20 acres.

No qualifications to be on this board other than a willingness to work hard at whatever endeavor is put before me.
Lucille Schmitt, Director
About Lucille: My family moved from Nebraska to a ranch in this area in 1962. I soon became fascinated with area history and started saving all the stories and printed materials I could get my hands on. My participation on the board is part of my ongoing effort to preserve this “stuff” for others who may be interested
Hannah Stone, Director
About Hannah: When Hannah was a very young girl, her grandparents built a log cabin across from Parvin Lake. For over 50 years every summer her family roamed the meadows, climbed rocks and fished for brook trout in this lovely forest. Hannah has known since she was eight-years-old that Red Feather Lakes was the most magical place in the world and that is where she wanted to live when she retired. Over the years Roger and Hannah have loved sharing the family cabin and mountains with their children and their friends.
Hannah retired as Vice President of Make-A-Wish Nebraska in December 2016. Prior to Make-A-Wish, she worked for the University of Nebraska at Kearney as Marketing Director.
Collectively and separately the Stone family travel all over the country, staying connected with each other as well as family and friends so have been dubbed “The Rolling Stones.”
