On Thursday, March 19th, 2009, the Washtenaw Land Trust officially became the Legacy Land Conservancy, at an event celebrating land conservation and local foods. The “Legacy of Trust” gala raised $19,000 for protecting local nature and farmland.
The full-course dinner and program, held at Cobblestone Farm in Ann Arbor, featured guest speaker Rand Wentworth, the President of the national group Land Trust Alliance.
The Legacy Land Conservancy extends its thanks to the many individuals and organizations who made this event possible.
The Conservancy also extends its thanks to:
* The many people who attended the event, or made a gift in honor of it.
* CD Photo Group’s Greg Czarnecki and Sue Dempsey, for taking truly lovely photos of the event. These great photos can be seen at our Flickr gallery.
* The event committee: Janet Crone, Suzanne DeVine, Margaret Engle, Sherry Hall, Susan Roth, and Charity Steere.
