David Fischel

Board Chair

David is a retired Pediatrician, who has been happily married to Melanie for almost 49 years. He's the father of two adult children and grandfather to two blossoming adolescents. As a couple, David and Melanie have embraced the experience of being able to participate in short-term volunteer opportunities in various places around the globe. "Most relevant, perhaps, to my serving on the Board of CRC is that I've been a member of this Teton Valley community for over 40 years. In that span of over 4 decades, I've witnessed lots of change in this valley, a great deal of it positive.

I believe that the emergence and growth of the various non-profits has contributed significantly to the positive changes in this valley. Of all the non-profits, the CRC is uniquely focused on "the other" by providing food, shelter, and financial assistance to those in need. I'm honored to have been invited to serve on the Board of an organization that very tangibly demonstrates care and concern for our neighbors."

Ruth Lindstedt

Executive Committee

Teton Valley became Ruth’s home in 2017, though she’d been visiting the Valley for years after her daughter settled here. Ruth is a retired professional nurse and spent most of her career as a staff member and later, administrator of hospice and home care programs in the Midwest. She is also a certified spiritual director. Ruth is very active with St. Francis Episcopal church in Alta and through that association Ruth learned how she could help support the work of the Community Resource Center.

“I have been on the Board of CRC since December of 2019 and am in awe of the commitment and energy of staff to link community residents with resources to overcome crises that present barriers to their continued well-being. The CRC may be a young not-for-profit but its programming and services suggest it already serves a vital role in building resilience of residents to become stable contributors who will enhance the community’s future.

After spending most of the last two years here, his love for the valley and those who call it home has only continued to grow.

Rich strongly believes that those who have moved in and become a part of this amazing community should give back to those who make this community work.
