David Darrin, Ike Wolgin, Elected Fund Trustees
David Darrin of Hague and Ike Wolgin of Bolton Landing have been elected trustees of The Fund for Lake George, chairman Jeff Killeen has announced.
“Both David and Ike bring to The Fund a long term, multi-generational family passion for Lake George. They both clearly understand the environmental and economic intersection that must be skillfully managed if we seek to protect and preserve Lake George for the next generation.”
Killeen added: “The Fund continues to strengthen its Board of Trustees, first by adding Dr. John E. Kelly III and George R. Hearst III earlier this year, and now with the addition of David Darrin and Ike Wolgin to the board. These additions will help us accelerate The Fund’s strategy to protect Lake George through its programmatic work and as a partner in the Jefferson Project at Lake George (with IBM and RPI) and as a member of the S.A.V.E. Lake George Partnership (with municipal leaders).”
David Darrin is past President of the Board of The Lake George Land Conservancy, where he continues to serve on its Advisory Board. He has also served on the boards of the Albany Academy for Girls and the Emma Willard School, and is a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Photographic Sciences.
Darrin has a life long association with the lake, the Fund stated, noting that he and his family are the original benefactors of the RPI Darrin Freshwater Institute in Bolton Landing.

He is a supporter of numerous environmental and cultural activities in the Adirondack Region, and serves on the boards of the Lake George Land Conservancy and Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
