Ray and Linda Allen

“Our family greatly benefited from this community’s educational and cultural institutions preserved by past generations. We want to assure that future generations have the same opportunities that were available to us and our daughters. The Legacy Society provides the way for us to help local high school students pursue their educational dreams in engineering and journalism, our own career passions, and to assure that books, art and music will continue to enrich the lives of area families. We strongly believe that a well educated population is the driving force of an economically vibrant community.”

Besides being Legacy Society members and active supporters of The Foundation, the Allens are involved in several community projects, including Rotary’s International Youth Exchange, Imagination Library and other literacy projects in Herkimer and Oneida counties. Linda is especially dedicated to Rotary, the Women’s Fund and the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.
