Smith to lead First Night Canfield

Barb Smith, a veteran of nonprofit management, will take over as the director of Canfield’s First Night New Year’s Eve Celebration of the Arts.

Smith offers 20 years of experience with Camp Fire Council and involvement with many other youth-oriented organizations.

“We are fortunate to have had several very qualified candidates apply for the position,” said Tom Bowser, president of the FNC Board of Trustees. “Barb’s experience with managing an organization, working with the youth and organizing volunteers stood out in our efforts to attract a younger generation.”

Additional volunteer opportunities with selecting entertainment, developing marketing efforts, arranging logistics, organizing fundraising and auction items will be filled over the next few months.
