Previously, she was the Girl Scout coordinator for the town, as well as a troop leader for several troops for many years.

One of Terry's daughters was married at the Pierce House in 2013. Terry is excited to serve on the Pierce House Committee as a great way to contribute to the town in a new manner.
My interest in the Pierce House began to surface after our son-in-law’s parents hosted a beautiful rehearsal dinner under tents in May of 1992. The evening was perfect, showing off the Pierce House and Lincoln at their best. A few years later I became a committee member, providing an opportunity to contribute my volunteer efforts to one of Lincoln’s treasures, a commitment I continue to value.

Anne Crosby has been a member of the Pierce House Committee for five years. She has lived in Lincoln for 31 years and has volunteered on numerous town committees but feels honored at this point to be a steward of the Pierce House Property.

Pam came to Lincoln in 1983 as a new bride and has been grateful to live here ever since. While her children were young she contributed to the community, teaching Sunday School at St. Joseph's church, co-leading a Girl Scout troop and participating in fund raising for Magic Garden as well as St. Joseph's. When the family moved to San Francisco in the '90's for work, they kept their house in Lincoln and returned "home" in 2004. When Pam retired from corporate life, she wanted to again contribute to the Town. After assisting in a recruiting role, she joined the Pierce House Committee in Spring of 2017 to help the Pierce House become an even more vital resource in the Town.
