After working within the organization since its inception over a decade ago, Turning Point co-directors Lee MacDonald and Marcine Fernandes are stepping down for their positions.
“It’s time we moved on and left it to the younger generation,” said MacDonald at the duo’s retirement party Sunday.
Both have been involved with the organization in various capacities since it began more than 12 years ago.
