Meet Donnie Pomeroy, key team member for Knit the Bridge. All along the way, Donnie’s been cheering for KtB and working behind the scenes to help pull off this ambitious project. Along with advising on political strategy and fundraising, Donnie is the reason KtB has been able to occupy Spinning Plate, our community workspace. As a resident, she was able to advocate for KtB’s use of the space. Thank you Donnie!
