Mann presides over her final RiverCenter board meeting


Mary Mann (above) presided over the final board of directors meeting of her tenure as executive director of Red Bank RiverCenter this week.

Mann, who joined RiverCenter in November 2000, resigned effective Dec. 12 to become a full-time mother to her 10-month-old son.

"Thank you all for this great opportunity. I learned so much," Mann told RiverCenter directors.

"You put your heart into this town," RiverCenter Chairman Chris Cole (right) told Mann, "and everyone considers you a local. It’s a close-knit community, and you fit right in."
