Boys & Girls Club board leader silent over why executive director is gone

SEQUIM — The Boys & Girls Club of the Olympic Peninsula needs a new boss.

After just a year, executive director Cinnamon Falley, 33, left her position recently, and board president Sara Maloney isn’t saying why.

Maloney declined to answer questions about whether Falley resigned or was fired.

Falley’s home phone number in Sequim has been disconnected, so the former director couldn’t be reached.

“We’ve appointed the Sequim unit director, Carrie Columbus, as interim executive director,” Maloney said.

“She’s a very strong unit director.”

The Sequim Boys & Girls Club, based at 400 W. Fir St., serves about 200 children and teens age 6 to 18 every weekday, Maloney said.

Kids come in to do homework, use the art studio, gym and library, play games and have nutritious snacks from 2 until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Services uninterrupted

“Services will remain uninterrupted. We have a very dedicated staff,” Maloney added.

Club staffers had been instructed not to talk to reporters about Falley’s departure.
