After more than two decades of dedication to island children, Fran Myers is stepping down from leadership of the Beach Kids Foundation. Myers will remain a board member, but said she's ready to hand over the reins: Linda Beasley will take over as chairman. "Part of it is age," Myers said. "I knew Linda, and wanted to make sure it was someone who had been there from the beginning." The Beach Kids Foundation got its start as a function of the Chamber of Commerce.
