Libby Hartman, Officer, President and IT/Webmaster – 3nd Term - Libby became a board member shortly after moving to Sequim from Seattle in 2018. Libby’s career has been in Management Consulting and the Hi Tech industry and she most recently works for Microsoft in the Customer Experience and Service Organization. Libby lives with her wife Jane, a retired therapist and their two dogs, Gunnar and Bodhi who love to ‘welcome’ visitors and passerby's with loud raucous barking. Jane loves to cook and Libby loves to eat so they are a perfect pair. Jane LOVES the quiet of Sequim and McFarland Farm and Libby is working at transforming how she spend her down time from ‘city shopping’ to ‘country landscaping’. when she is now playing Pickleball. She now feels very competent on her lawn mower and is considering buying some overalls. We believe in kindness, community and connection with our neighbors. We hope to have plans to host the MF community on our deck sometime when the weather and COVID take a turn for the better.

Vanessa Gunther - Secretary 1st term - After 15 years of coming to Sequim on vacation and to see friends, Vanessa Gunther finally moved from Southern California in early 2021. She lives with her three dogs; Owen, Obadiah, and Oliver - who wonder why it took so long to make the move. They can be seen regularly taking her for a walk in the neighborhood early in then mornings. She is a retired professor of history - which means she knows many things - and isn't afraid to tell you about it. However, she still had to be instructed on how to turn on a generator (Seriously, who knew there was a choke?), ride a zero turn lawnmower, or plant plants that would actually live in the arctic loam soil. In addition to being a retired professor - she is also a retired registered nurse. She is an active member in the Community of Francis and Clare and regularly volunteers in the Soup's On program at St Luke's Episcopal in Sequim. 

Christine Charter - Treasurer, 1st term - Moved to McFarland Farm in April 2022 from Seattle after I retired.  Stepped up to being Board Treasurer since I have worked at the University of Washington as a Fiscal Specialist (budgets) most recently at the College of Education.  I thought that doing the board work would help me better connect to the community and meet people.  I am overwhelmed with all the work to do on the property but hanging in there.  I am down to 5 chickens from 12.  Let’s just say, I’m doing better than the chickens.  Other interests are history, politics, art, gardening, and I am a big reader. I just became the PCO – Precinct Caption for Clallam Co. Republicans for Happy Valley Precinct 237.

Denny White, Member at large – 5th Term - Denny and his wife Jenny moved to McFarland Farms from Far Hills, NJ in 2014.  Looking for a place to retire, we found Sequim on the internet – praise God for technology!  We love the outdoors, especially gardening and fishing. Year round, cooking is also a passion. Jenny is a Zumba Dance teacher at the YMCA.  Being surrounded by mountains and water is wonderful.  I feel a strong connection to “place,” and view my work on the Board as partially fulfilling that.  The future always brings changes and we need to consciously adapt to them.  The challenge is preserving the best of the past and bringing forth wonderful new things to our neighborhood.

Ken Phillips, Member at large, – 5th Term - My wife Kris and I moved to Sequim in 2005 from Auburn Ca. I worked for the LA and Placer County Sheriff’s Departments.

Karen Griffiths - Member at large, 2nd term - In 2016 I  moved from Sequim’s Olson Road to McFarland Farms with my elderly mother (who suffered from Alzheimer's and passed in 2018) and young nephew, a very vocal and active 3-year-old, along with horses and dogs. You may have seen us tootling through the streets in our golf cart.  Last June my nephew, now 9, went to live with his grandmother (my sister) in Southern California where he’s learning to surf.  So now it’s just me running my two husky mixes around the neighborhood next to the golf cart. Prior job experiences include secretarial, clearing trails and cleaning outhouses for the Uinta National Forest in Utah, school bus driver, 16 years as a licensed Wallpaper hanging and painting contractor in Southern California and then special sections editor, writer and photographer for The Peninsula Daily News.  Working for the newspaper  was one of my great joys, nonetheless, continually writing to make deadlines became too stressful for my body and I had to quit after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. One of my greatest accomplishments while there was to convince my boss John Brewer (now retired) to let me write a column about horses, horse people and local horse events.  I’m proud to say I’m now in my 20th  year of writing  my bi-monthly column, “Peninsula Horseplay.” Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, degenerative, often episodic, disease of the central nervous system.  In short, it’s the body’s immune system attacking its own central nervous system, crazy right? Thankfully, for most of us there are disease modifying drugs that work to slow the progression. I’m on one called Copaxone.  I’ll let you do your own research on MS symptoms. Suffice to say some symptoms can wax and wane, which is why you may sometimes see me walk with a pronounced limp, or occasionally even a walker, and sometimes you won’t. Living here on the Farm is, well, it’s a beautiful place in the neighborhood. Oh, I also own a few pairs of well-worn overalls, while board member Libby Hartman is still a wannabe.

Corey Boss - Member at large, 2nd term - In 2018 my wife Shannan and I moved here from Southern California seeking cooler weather and more elbow room.  The first day we arrived to our new home we bought a shower curtain, the second day we bought a riding lawnmower.  I was a General Contractor and now retired and Shannan was a college administrator.  We have two dogs, a cat, and five chickens.  When not working around the property I like to golf, hike and do ceramic work.  We’ve enjoyed the past four years living the good life in McFarland Farms and continue looking forward to exploring the area and getting to know more people.
