In the past year we’ve lost in succession, three longtime community members, Stu Staffer (May 20, 2017), John Abbott Gardiner (Oct. 24, 2017), and now, Mark Chamberlain (April 23, 2018), who each contributed mightily to Laguna’s legacy in their own significant ways.
Their lives are reminders of how great communities are built on visionary leaders. Mark, John and Stu (as well as their predecessors) will be cheering on Laguna’s next torchbearers.
A celebration of Mark’s life is scheduled for June 3, 2018, 2 p.m. at the Neighborhood Congregational Church.
