The Rose Valley Centennial Foundation was fortunate to have had many excellent applicants to live in Thunderbird Lodge in exchange for maintaining the house and grounds. After extensive interviews and considerable deliberation, The Board has selected Meg Rumsey-Lasersohn and Ben Davidson to become the first caretakers of Thunderbird Lodge.
Meg and Ben met while students at Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont. Meg grew up in Upper Providence Township and attended The School in Rose Valley. She is now an actress and a part-time nanny.
Ben is originally from Lake Forest, Illinois, where he worked as groundskeeper and handyman at Ragdale, the country home of architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, a leader of the American Craftsman movement. Ben is the Guest Services Associate for Pendle Hill and is considering pursuing a PhD in history. Guess he may have found the perfect subject for his dissertation if he does.
