Triangle Connection Newsletter
Hello, Triangle Connection friends.

Below is the October newsletter…


Triangle Connection is pleased to announce that Henry Ollendick is the new president of our TC community. Henry is the right person to make sure our community moves to the next level of effectiveness. Wilsa Deleon-Cruz is agreeing to stay on as a permanent VP. Thank you to both Henry and Wilsa. They make an excellent executive team. Coupled with the entire board and ALL OF OUR FRIENDS our best days are ahead of us.

Henry said the following when he recently told the board he would accept the president role: “My priorities are to continue to promote inclusivity, create different social opportunities for our friends, and find ways to expand our reach for those who might not yet know about our community. I look forward to working with all of you in moving this group forward and upward."

While many of you know Henry already, here is a little more about him: He was born in Panama and lived in Key West for years before moving to Mount Dora several years ago. A strong leader among the Mount Dora merchants group, Henry is also part owner of the well-known Papilio shop on Donnelly Street. He is single and lives in downtown Mount Dora. Henry is well connected within the commerce circles, is well known by many in our community, and people at City Hall know him as well.

There are so many positives about this move to help us attract more younger and single people in the community. Henry and Wilsa, by the way, are the first two people to lead our organization as President and VP who are also people of color. They both love Central Florida and our LGBTQ+ community.

Bruce Cusic will stay on the TC board to support Henry, Wilsa, and the rest of the board with communications. The full board also includes Darla Adams, Sunny Beseler, Rick Betson, Tom Harry, Shonne Henry, Salandra Johnson, Edmund Mach, and Kathy Russell.
