Hidden Villa's poor communication

I so greatly agree with Ann Smith's observation: "Communication is the biggest issue as far as I am concerned."
In late May I addressed a letter to the board and to Beth Ross, the executive director. Ross called me a day or so after receipt of the letter. I have not had a response from the board.
When I tried to get the contact information concerning the new board president, Lee Price, a couple of months ago from the Hidden Villa office, I was told that the information was not available to the public. They would take my contact information and let Price know of my desire to chat with him. I have never had a phone call or e-mail from him.
My husband and I have been supporters of Hidden Villa for more than 20 years. For the last 15 years we have sent our grandchildren (who lived in Washington and Missouri) to the summer-camp program each summer.
The critical need for funds was never communicated to us or to our two sons and their wives.
