Personnel changes are happening at the Langley Main Street Association that will affect The South Whidbey Record.

Personnel changes are happening at the Langley Main Street Association that will affect The South Whidbey Record.

Michaela Marx Wheatley is leaving her position as Main Street’s program manager, a position that will be filled by Lorinda Kay.

Wheatley was a Record reporter for several years and more recently has been a part-time staff writer. Kay has a history with The Record going back to the ’80s as a reporter, photographer, feature writer, ad salesperson and office manager.

Wheatley and her family are moving to Oklahoma where her husband will study to become a dentist. Kay will continue living in Glendale where she has been a resident for many years.

Although leaving the employment of Sound Publishing, which owns The South Whidbey Record, Kay will still feel like part of the family. Main Street and The Record share office space in the old Island Travel building located in Langley Village.

The Langley Main Street Association is a non-profit organization that focuses on economic revitalization and historic preservation in Langley. Formed in 2010, the organization has supported projects such as the Second Street Market in Langley during the summer months, shuttle rides from event sites into downtown, decoration and beautification projects and most recently is coordinating many local groups to produce a centennial celebration in 2013.

A “Tears and Cheers” event honoring both Wheatley and Kay will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, at Music for the Eyes, 314 First St., Langley.

Everyone is welcome to stop by and say hello, goodbye, and enjoy light nibbles.
