The director of the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center is stepping down. Brenda Abney has resigned to take a similar job in Arizona. Wenatchee mayor Frank Kuntz says Abney has done a great job since taking over the job eight years ago, and that she'll be missed. He says the Museum has undergone a lot of changes in those years as the city slashed financial support.

That may change with the next Director.
Abney resignation is effective in December.
