Ingrid Menken

It is with sadness that my friend Ingrid Menken, who volunteered with the Tag Project with such energy and enthusiasm, has succumbed to her battle with cancer in October this year. She was a longtime member of the Haystack Mountain School of Craft "family" and managed the financial business and was one of the many cheerful folks who made everyone feel so welcome. She wrote earlier this year that writing the names on the tags, reciting their names carefully as she wrote was therapeutic for her, as she looked out her window at the winter snow in Maine. She wrote names and stamped numbers for the Heart Mountain camp.

I will miss you, dear Ingrid.
