Bucks Beautiful welcome two new board members


Bucks Beautiful has welcomed Michael Flanagan and Kevin Juchno to the board of directors.

Flanagan grew up in Akron, Ohio and moved to Doylestown in 1997, where he raised his own family. He is a proud father to Lauren (husband Dustin), grandfather to Austin and Paxton, and husband to William Hughes. In 1982 he embarked upon what would become a 33-year career in the insurance industry. After serving as vice president of North American Insurance for a leading group insurance provider, he took an early retirement in 2015.

Flanagan volunteers in the areas of social action and social justice, advocating for education and programs to benefit Bucks County residents and children. Additionally, he serves on the Bucks County Chapter of the Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center. An active member of the Doylestown Pride Committee, Flanagan also champions LGBTQ issues for our community.

Flanagan and Hughes became Charter Members of Bucks Beautiful and have opened their home and property for the Kitchen and Garden Tour fundraiser. They have since volunteered at the event, plus Flanagan was an invaluable member of this year’s Spring Fling Committee.

In his spare time, Flanagan loves to garden, travel and entertain friends and family.

Juchno was raised in Yardley and earned a master’s degree in forest ecology and entomology from East Stroudsburg University in 2014. He worked in several states as a traveling arborist, and spent time in Costa Rica working on forest conservation projects. An ISA certified arborist and certified tree risk assessor, he owned a tree care business in the Poconos.

Juchno joined Bartlett Tree Experts in 2020 as a plant health care specialist and crew foreman in Bala Cynwyd. The following year he advanced to manager and arborist representative of Bartlett’s Dublin office, overseeing the operation for all of Bucks County and bordering sections of Montgomery County. Juchno is passionate about tree care and soil health, as well as empowering people to be more knowledgeable about maintaining their trees, shrubs and plants.

He became a Bucks Beautiful Business Member, and has continued his support of the nonprofit through attending this year’s Spring Fling Gala, plus providing manpower and equipment for the Earth Day Cleanup Project. Additionally, he was a key sponsor of our Kitchen & Garden Tour Fundraiser, and will be teaching a pruning class in the Green Scene Series with Doylestown Township Parks and Recreation this fall.

In his personal time, Juchno is an outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys spending time with dogs Timber and Rhea, hiking, rock climbing, backpacking and fishing.

They join current Board of Directors Matthew Broad, Steve Darlington, Melissa Eiseman, Mike Feeney, David Fermier, Peter R. Fernandez, Chuck Gale, Dr. Vail Garvin, Thomas L. Hebel, John F. McCaughan, Renny Reynolds, Bryce Sanders, Susan Sandor, Jonathan Sharaf and Carter van Dyke. Bucks Beautiful’s board officers are President Gary Mathern, Vice President Michael E. Peters, and treasurer Michael J. Stumpf.
