New Executive Director for Celebrate Great Falls

New Executive Director for Celebrate Great Falls

Celebrate Great Falls Foundation has a new executive director, Piper Ryan, effective Oct. 15th.  Prior to settling in Great Falls four years ago, Piper and her family enjoyed time in California, Florida and Ohio where she balanced a career in product/project management with extensive volunteer work focused on building community. Piper enjoys attending Celebrate Great Falls events — especially the Sunday Concerts on the Green. Celebrate Great Falls says she is great addition to the leadership team, bringing new perspective to the organization. In the meantime, departing Director Erin Lobato will be working with Piper through the end of the year to ensure a successful transition.  

You can reach Piper with any questions or to find out more about volunteer and sponsorship opportunities by emailing her at

Started over 20 years ago, the Celebrate Great Falls Foundation sustains long-time community traditions such as the July 4th parade, Summer Concerts on the Green and the annual tree lighting in December. Through the years, Celebrate Great Falls has donated well over $500,000 to local schools and community projects such as the Freedom Memorial and Turner Farm Park. See for events and to get involved.
