Thank You to Annual Meeting Participants!

19 Upper Valley Land Trust members and friends took the round trip bus from Hanover to the meeting and celebration of land conservation at the Academy Building in Bradford, VT on May 25. By providing the bus we were able to offset approximately 850 miles of driving. We hope to continue to provide this type of alternative transportation to future events.

Congratulations to Al Samor for winning the $30 gift certificate to the Upper Valley Food Co-op and to Betty Ann Heistad for winning the $50 gift certificate to the Canoe Club!

We’d also like to congratulate the Thetford Elementary School for receiving the 2010 Patchen Miller Award and George Grove for receiving the 2010 Ashley Ambassador Award.

Thanks especially to the Town of Bradford and its Conservation Commission for being terrific hosts and leading two lovely hikes on Wright’s Mountain prior to the meeting. Bradford Conservation Commission Chair, Nancy Jones led an especially long walk under the hot sun.
