Board of Directors

Board members are elected by mail-in ballots sent out to members with invitations to the Annual Community Program. Members serve staggered three-year terms, with part of the Board up for election each year. The Bylaws specify a Board of five to nine members. Seven members serve currently. The Board meets once a month at a time chosen by the group.

We find that each of the Board members brings rich and different talents, and we are grateful for their important volunteer contributions, especially considering that some Board members have fulltime jobs. If you would like to learn more about being a Board member, please contact us.

Current Board of Directors
Ruth Pickering

Ruth Pickering: 2022 Director

Working with Jack Kelley on Jack's History of Fall City thoroughly infected me with local history! The FCHS Board is a delightful group to work with and I'm proud of what we have accomplished since 2007. We hope you follow us on Facebook and in the Fall City Neighbors Newsletter.


Rick Divers: 2022 President

I am a fourth generation descendant of the Burns family of Fall City, and have lived most all of my life here. I attended Fall City Elementary School in the old brick school building, and graduated from Mount Si High School. Because of this background, I felt like I had a lot that I could contribute to the Historical Society's preservation goals. All of the members of this group are dedicated and fun to work with, and I look forward to spending time preserving Fall City's history with them.

Cindy Parks

Cindy Parks: 2022 Secretary

I was happy to join the board way back in 2007. The history of Fall City needed to be documented and accessible to all. Our first big project was the Memory Book. Each of our board members has a unique strength and together we are mighty. I love marketing and promoting our group.


Donna Diver-Kummen: 2022 Board Member

As a charter member of the board, I have enjoyed watching the organization grow. Our team works well with each of us having unique skills and interests. We have fun putting on events and collecting history. When not planning historical displays, I dabble in music, gardening, sewing, and cooking.

Gene Stevens

Gene Stevens: 2022 Board Member

As a lifelong resident of Fall City, Gene is excited to be initiating our latest project, capturing Oral Histories with some of our longstanding residents. With many of his own stories to share, we are looking forward to this new treasure for our community.

Fall City…history lives here
