The Rose­bud Cen­tre of the Arts Board of Di­rec­tors an­nounced that Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor Adam Fur­faro will leave his po­si­tion at the end of the sum­mer.

Fur­faro joined the or­ga­ni­za­tion in July 2012 and has been at the helm since. He is leav­ing to serve as Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor for St. John Com­mu­nity Church in Oak Ridges, On­tario.

Call­ing this a bit­ter and a sweet announcement, Board Chair Colin Jack­son said, “While we will sorely miss him, we are thrilled for Adam that the Lord has called him to help lead a Church. Adam has led our or­ga­ni­za­tion to new heights in ed­u­ca­tion, hos­pi­tal­ity and the per­form­ing arts. He has also bal­anced the bud­get and elim­i­nated the siz­able mort­gage we had when he ar­rived, and by so do­ing, has put RCA on solid foot­ing for a fab­u­lous fu­ture.”

Fur­faro said, “I thank the Board of Di­rec­tors of Rose­bud Cen­tre of the Arts for the op­por­tu­nity to lead this cel­e­brated and award-win­ning or­ga­ni­za­tion. Their sup­port has not waned from day one. This has been an amaz­ing run. Our fam­ily has had a re­mark­able Al­berta ad­ven­ture. The peo­ple of this prov­ince have been great to us and we have each had an op­por­tu­nity to make life-long friends and to con­trib­ute in our own small way to the ta­pes­try of this beau­ti­ful prov­ince.”

He added, “It’s hard to be­lieve that four years have gone by. I’ve loved my job and I’ve loved the com­mu­nity of Strath­more and I will miss both greatly, but the tim­ing is right for our fam­ily to move back to On­tario and once again be with our daugh­ters and the ma­jor­ity of our ex­tended fam­ily.”

In ad­di­tion to his work with St. John Com­mu­nity Church, Fur­faro also plans to con­tinue to write, di­rect and pro­duce theatre in­de­pen­dently and for other pro­fes­sional com­pa­nies.

The search for a new Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor has be­gun, said Jack­son. “We have struck a search Com­mit­tee un­der the lead­er­ship of Board mem­ber Erna Regehr and the search for Adam’s suc­ces­sor will com­mence by the end of April.”
