Fernandina Beach Main Street
October 25, 2020
It is with great pleasure that we announce our new Executive Director for the Fernandina Beach Main Street organization. Lisa Finkelstein will be joining us effective November 2, 2020.
Lisa has owned a second home here in Fernandina Beach for many years and had recently decided to make this her permanent home. Lisa owned Attick’s Inc., a wholesale floral importing/distribution business which was started by her parents in 1975. She has been on several non-profit boards including the CAN DO Economic Development Corporation and the Conyngham Valley Civic Organization.
Lisa was most recently the Assistant Scout Executive for Minsi Trails Council, Boy Scouts of America, in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. During her tenure with the BSA, she supported volunteers in all aspects of the Scouting program with youth and adult recruitment, fundraising, training, and activities. Most recently, she was responsible for special event fundraising, grants, and working with individual donors to support the local Scouting program. Lisa has been active in Rotary International since 2007.
Lisa and her husband, Mark, have two sons. One currently living in Kampala, Uganda and the other in Denver, Colorado. They also have one grandson, Max.
We welcome Lisa and her family to Fernandina Beach fulltime and to Main Street. We believe that Main Street will thrive under Lisa’s direction and that the businesses and historic resources within the Main Street district will all benefit greatly from her experience.
During her first couple of months, she will transition work from Arlene Filkoff who served as the Executive Director of the program since 2017. Arlene will be retiring December 31, 2020. Fernandina Beach Main Street thanks her for all her hard work and dedication to our program. We wish her and her husband Steve the best in their retirement.
