Spring forward


by Doniele Ayres, MVF President

Thank you for the oppor­tunity to serve as President of the Montgomery Village Foundation (MVF) Board of Directors. I am excited to work with the Board, the Executive Vice President and all of the MVF staff. More important, I am excited to serve the com­munity. At our annual meeting in March, we looked back at a successful 2023 for the Village, and our April meeting shows strong financial performance in the first quarter of 2024, as well as a plan to continue our growth.

As we think about the fu­ture of Montgomery Village, I am excited to hear from you about your vision for the com­munity and how we can work together to build that vision. Montgomery Village Foun­dation is a partnership of its members, which includes all of our homeowners, dwelling in numerous homes corpora­tions, condominium associa­tions and multi-family rental apartments. Each of these partnerships has unique needs, but they depend on everyone working together.

I offer a special thanks to volunteers across the Village. Whether you volunteer on a committee or HOA/COA board, advocate for the Vil­lage to our elected officials or support the community in any big or small way, you make our community better and your ef­forts are appreciated.
