BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Gramatan Village, a nonprofit organization serving older Bronxville-area residents, has elected a local woman to its board of directors.
Joan C. Toffolone, who works in finance and marketing, has been involved in many civic and community activities, said the organization’s executive director, Julie Dalton.
She was tapped for the position by the board in November.
“Joan was curious about Gramatan Village and attended an open house,” Dalton said. “She was so impressed by the way we engage our members she decided she wanted to help us spread the word.”
Toffolone got involved by writing articles on the center’s cultural outings -- always highlighting how much Gramatan members enjoyed getting together with friends, Dalton said.
Dalton called Toffolone’s experience in marketing “a welcome asset to our board.”
Toffolon earned her undergraduate degree in economics from Boston College and received an MBA in finance from Fordham University Gabelli Graduate School of Business.
Her work experience includes positions with the Consumer Products Division of Hanson Industries, SCM Corp., and Smith Corona Corp.
Among her many civic and community activities are: board positions at Catholic Guardian Services in New York City; the Bronxville School Foundation (where she was vice president of public relations); the Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe; and Heartsong, Inc.
Toffolone also volunteers with Destination College and serves on the parents’ committees at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and at the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Mass.
Toffolone and her husband, John, have lived in Bronxville since 1992. The couple have two children: Ashley, 22, and Allison, 19.
