Lawrence Dwight Named KFL’s First Trustee Emeritus
"Larry” Dwight has been named Kennebunk Free Library’s first Trustee Emeritus,
endorsed unanimously by the KFL’s Board of Trustees.
In November 2014, the KFL Board of Trustees agreed to create the role of Trustee Emeritus for former KFL Trustees in recognition of their "distinguished service", defined as active participation and engagement when serving as a full member of the Board; consistent philanthropic support; and demonstrated interest in the KFL.
Larry has satisfied this definition many times over. He is a former Board of Trustees president and board member of many years. As the great-grandson of George Parsons, who donated the land for the present library, hired the architect and oversaw the building process, Larry has been a mainstay at the KFL for decades, and continues to support the KFL.
