The Diana Cleborne Circle

The Diana Cleborne Circle recognizes people who make current gifts to the Foundation. Donations can be in the form of cash, real property, or irrevocable gifts of life insurance. The Cleborne Circle includes those who have made gifts in memory of others, and all who have previously made contributions.

As the Librarian at the South Hero Community Library, Diana Cleborne was cherished by patrons during her tenure from 2010-2012. Her deep background in the arts, long experience as a public librarian, love of reading and ability to work with people made her terrific at her job. Diana followed her time as Librarian with a term as a Library Board Trustee. In that role she was a strong advocate of a stand-alone library.

Diana’s understanding of the benefit of light and air as an essential element of a vibrant public building led her and her husband Rockwell to make a generous donation to the new Library for the purchase of windows.

Your current gift at any level makes you a member of both the Worthen Society and the Cleborne Circle.
