Guild gave heart and soul to new community

Carol Guild lived in this community for far too brief a time, yet left behind gifts given passionately and graciously that enriched the lives of all of us. 

Initially Carol shared her vast knowledge of marketing and promotion with Historic Apalachicola Main Street. While there she spearheaded the community Easter Egg hunt, a wonderful partnership with the Apalachicola Margaret Key Library, and Bring Me A Book. As part of a marketing plan she developed for them she created an award-winning short film made available to all businesses in Apalachicola called There Is A Place. 

She continued to give her heart and soul to her new community with the Apalachicola Margaret Key Library. As a member of the PALS board of directors, she developed an outstanding branding program for them, designing their logos, corporate images and creating their newsletters. In addition to her hours of dedication to the library, Carol and Dan were major donors to the new library. 

After her time on the PALS board she turned her attention to the Ilse Newell Concert Series, perhaps her greatest passion, for which she is to be honored at their final concert on Sunday, April 28 at Trinity Church at 4 p.m. 

Rarely does someone from “away” give so much to a newly adopted home. But Carol was a remarkable, warm, smart, special woman. She will be greatly missed, and her memory will last for many years in the hearts of those who knew her in Apalachicola.
