At the Associates of Idyllwild Arts Foundation’s annual meeting Sunday, June 12, Diana and Terry Kurr were named volunteers of the year and were presented the annual Honor Award.
Diana has served as Membership Chair for many years; she serves as a member of the Board of Directors, and supports the Associates whenever there is a need. Until this year, Terry has served as Treasurer and has supported the Associates in many other ways.
Diana grew up in Riverside. Her parents met there in World War II and they never left. She and Terry lived in Riverside for years where Diana taught school for 20-plus years. They have two children and four grandchildren.
Diana and Terry have been volunteering for Jazz in the Pines for more than 10 years. Jazz in the Pines is what inspired them to buy a second home in Idyllwild. Today, Terry and Diana live in Idyllwild full-time with a getaway place in Moreno Valley.
Diana is member and past president of the Mountain Quilters and she is the corresponding secretary of Soroptimist International of Idyllwild where she was just given the Volunteer of the Year award.
Terry is a member and a new officer of the Rotary. Their grandchildren attend the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program.
Diana and Terry are selfless volunteers in the community and are constantly giving back.
Anne Erikson, past president of the Associates, presented the Kurrs a one-of-a-kind wind chime crafted by local artist Jan Jaspers-Fayer.
