News Article | February 15, 2017

Founded as a nonprofit performing arts center in 2001, the Fairfield Theatre Company (FTC) is a leading force in the Fairfield County arts and cultural scene. From the beginning, FTC’s Board members have been instrumental in the success and growth of the organization. Today, FTC welcomes their newest Chairman of the Board, Jamie Orvis. Orvis grew up in Wilton and has lived in Fairfield for the past 25 years with his wife, Anne, who teaches at Southport Congregational Pre-School. He is a graduate of Middlebury College and Harvard Business School. His son is a senior at St. Lawrence University and his daughter a freshman at Skidmore. Orvis is the second-generation owner and president of Security Solutions, Inc., a family-owned systems integration company that has been providing burglar alarms, fire alarms, card access, video, telephone and entertainment systems to residential and commercial clients since 1969. An avid golfer, he is a member of Brooklawn Country Club. Orvis has been an FTC Board member and the chair of the Building Committee since 2009. When discussing his new role, Orvis said “I am a live music fanatic and I saw a perfect opportunity to be involved with a nonprofit organization that is doing great things for the community. I also get to have fun while volunteering my time. Since the beginning, I have been focused on the physical plant while chairing the building committee. Executive Director John Reid and I built the FTC Gallery bar together and prepared for the opening of the FTC Gallery, which is curated by Art/Place, a cooperative of Fairfield County artists. That led me and fellow Board Member, Ryan Moran, to share the general contractor responsibilities for the construction of the Warehouse.” The Warehouse is the highly acclaimed 640 capacity performing arts venue on the FTC campus in downtown Fairfield that opened in September 2015. The development of the FTC campus has been a gratifying experience for Orvis. However, that’s not all that attracts him to the organization. “The fact that FTC has become one of the primary economic drivers in the town of Fairfield is powerful,” he explained. “Our patrons have helped to make our town more vibrant and economically sound. That’s what I’m excited about. The town has rallied around and embraced FTC, which has become the place to see and be seen. Many shows become town-wide social events.” When asked what he hopes to accomplish during his tenure, Orvis commented, “I hope to help refine our mission and improve the operational metrics to ensure that we are consistently able to successfully meet the financial and artistic challenges that are common to performing arts organizations." When asked what his favorite concert at FTC has been over the years, Orvis struggled to choose only one. “That’s a very tough question as there have been so many shows,” he said. “My favorite is probably Little Feat on StageOne back in 2011. Also, Anders Osborne, Stanton Moore and Ivan Neville’s super group, Dragon Smoke, and Umphrey’s McGee at The Klein. Our patrons are very passionate about music and when the band is cranking it out and energizing the audience, who gives it right back, it builds from there. These shows had explosive energy going both ways." Outgoing Chairman, Dave Rosenfeld, who nominated Orvis as his successor, remarked, “Jamie will be an excellent Chairman for FTC. His dedication and diligence have been obvious from the beginning and I am confident he will help take us to the next level.” Rosenfeld was instrumental in catalyzing the FTC Board to take on the daunting task of building the Warehouse and has been a stalwart champion for FTC for many years. He will continue to serve on the Executive Committee of the Board. Executive Director, John Reid, when asked about FTC’s new chairman, replied, “No one has rolled up his sleeves faster and further and worked harder for FTC than Jamie Orvis. He and I work exceptionally well together and I continue to be excited and optimistic about the future of FTC. We just launched a new campaign – The Loft at FTC – to revitalize the green rooms and artists’ dressing rooms backstage and to build new offices, classrooms, and rehearsal rooms in the Loft, which is a wonderful space that hasn’t been used for decades. As usual, Jamie jumped right into the middle of the project, and with his leadership and the ongoing support of the community, the state, our Board, and the entire FTC team, we are expecting great things in the days ahead.” About Fairfield Theatre Company: Fairfield Theatre Company is a highly-acclaimed non-profit performing arts organization located in the heart of downtown Fairfield. FTC presents over 300 concerts and events each year featuring outstanding national talent at FTC’s StageOne and at The Warehouse. FTC’s venues are widely recognized as being the best places to see live performances in the region. FTC’s mission is to connect and enrich the community through the transforming power of the arts.

Lufkin III Foundation was happy to volunteer for Quantum House at the annual Honda Classic on Saturday February, 25, 2017. The Foundation’s principal, Chauncey Lufkin and his fiancé, Sandra Familet, stopped by the festivities on Sunday, to offer a helping hand. Palm Beach Gardens, FL, March 02, 2017 --( The annual Honda Classic, now 11 years into its tenure at PGA National Resort & Spa, is a well-established fixture in the Palm Beach County community. Won on Sunday by fan favorite Rickie Fowler, the event drew some 203,815 spectators over seven days between the Monday Pro-Am and Sunday's final round. Though top draws Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy were sidelined by injuries, the perfect weather over four days accounted for the slight increase in attendance over last year and Fowler is now back into the Top 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking at No. 9. Quantum House of Palm Beach County provides lodging, meals, care and compassion to families facing a medical crisis. A percentage of the proceeds from the concessions tents will go directly to the organization to help support the many families from all around the world that stay at their facilities in West Palm Beach. The Foundation’s principal, Chauncey Lufkin and his fiancé, Sandra Familet, pictured here, stopped by the festivities on Sunday, to offer a helping hand. Organizing the many Quantum House volunteers was Megan Thompson, Manager of Family Programs and Operations for Quantum House. “Our big thanks to Megan for all of her hard work this weekend and throughout the year. She and the rest of the Quantum House staff and the families they support, are always on our minds and in our hearts. It is our great privilege to contribute in any way we can to their great efforts in our community,” said Chauncey Lufkin, Founder of The Chauncey F. Lufkin III Foundation. Also, representing the Foundation, and volunteering on Saturday afternoon, were Foundation Director, Cara Familet and her friend Kathryn Ross, Founder of Kross Strategies, a sales and marketing advisory firm based in Lancaster, PA. Both volunteered at the 8th Green Grill. “Often organizations need physical support beyond financial donations to accomplish their fundraising goals. Quantum House is a worthy cause that made it a pleasure to work with all of the volunteers to make the grill's operations a fundraising success." said Kathryn Ross, Founder of Kross Strategies. Other highlights included an unprecedented two holes in one at the 15th hole. For the first 10 years, the Honda Classic was staged at PGA National, not a single hole-in-one was recorded at the difficult 15th hole. Jhonattan Vegas accomplished the feat Sunday, as did Scott Stallings on Thursday. Both players were rewarded with a Honda CRV.
