LCS Children’s Art Program manager resigns

Danielle Pagé, longtime Lake Chapala Society (LCS)  Children’s Art Program coordinator, announced her resignation from the volunteer position on Tuesday, May 21.

pg9The text of her resignation letter makes it apparent that the decision is fallout from concerns about the governance of the LCS affairs by the board of directors that Pagé, her spouse Garry Musgrave and other LCS members have aired over the past three months.

Pagé joined the Children’s Art Program (CAP) in 2010, and has served as its manager since 2013. Her records show a total payout of 420,000 pesos to the young artists for the sale of their original artworks and reproductions printed on greeting cards. LCS retained a similar amount for purchasing CAP art supplies and maintaining its self-sufficiency as a highly popular project within the Mexican community.

Additionally, Pagé and her volunteer team launched CAP’s weeklong Summer Art Camp in 2013. She calls it a “workshop adventure” involving around 120 local kids and 60 volunteer instructors every year.
