A Thank You from the Land's Sake Board:
The Board of Land's Sake is very pleased to announce the success of Land's Sake's "Growing the Roots" campaign. The Campaign, our first, raised a total of $345,307 from 288 families and individuals! On behalf of all of us here at Land's Sake, thank you to all who participated as donors, volunteers, and supporters. This success enables Land's Sake to increase our service to the community and begin to build our next 30 years.
While there are far too many people to thank here individually, we would like to acknowledge a group of people who put in exceptional time and energy to the campaign, our Community Leaders. This group was the "engine" of Growing the Roots" providing the necessary leadership to engage the broader community. Our most sincere thanks go to Jean and Parish Arturi, Joe Berman and Susan Cantor, Bill Brady, Barbara and Bill Burgess, Melinda and Philip Constable, Alix and Peter Keating, Meg and Jonathan Kelly, Cindy and Seth Lawry, Clover Nicholas and Rex DuPont, Susan and Drew Tamoney, Dianne Savitzky and Michael Pappone, and Nathalie and John Thompson.
For many of us, the two magical evenings gathered at the Gateways Barn to celebrate our 30th anniversary will always be remembered. Our most sincere thanks go out to Pete and Julie Hyde, Trish Scozzafava, Melinda Constable, our auction donors, and the small army that created these remarkable evenings.
Finally a special thanks to our Development Chair, John Marchiony, and to our Board President Alyson Muzila who unfailingly led and pushed on until we achieved our goal.
Our expectation for Growing the Roots is that, with focused effort and your support, we can evaluate, reorder and create a more sustainable culture and structure at Land's Sake. We are happy to report that we are well on our way. Below are some of the highlights.
