It is the mission of the Delafield Arts Foundation, Inc. to promote the arts by raising funds from the general public which will be used to finance endeavors like building an amphitheater at Liberty Park and other art programs – that may be sponsored by the City of Delafield, a municipal corporation – including, but not limited to, a public theater; arts and music festivals; outreach programs; or art exhibits. This corporation shall not, except in an insubstantial degree, engage in any activities or exercise any powers that are not in furtherance of the purposes described in the Articles of Incorporation or not authorized by Chapter 181 of the Wisconsin Statutes.
Jeffrey Robert Martin passed away at his home on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at the age of 66, after a defiant and courageous, years-long battle with cancer. Jeff married the love of his life, Mary, on a balmy August day in 1975, and they spent the next 44 years making a home in Delafield. Jeff’s greatest and most-treasured role undoubtedly was that of “Poppie” to his three grandchildren, who were a constant source of joy and pride. Jeff will be remembered for his calm demeanor, cherubic smile and trademark red hair.
Memorials were suggested in Jeff’s honor to Delafield Arts Foundation for The Stage at Liberty Park. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, every amount of support, volunteering, and donation we receive is a blessing. Those who contribute to the foundation will directly experience results, positivity, tax deductions, and a thriving arts and entertainment sector within the Delafield community.
On behalf of the entire Delafield Arts Foundation Board we sincerely thank the Martin family for this most thoughtful gesture. Jeff will be remembered.
