2015 Annual Meeting Celebrates 25 Years of Land Preservation

Anniversary Cake

On Tuesday, October 20, over 60 people attended our annual meeting to celebrate 25 years of land preservation in Attleboro. In the business portion of the meeting, three directors were re-elected to 3-year terms on the board: Ted Leach, Don Ouellette, and Larry St. Pierre.  Newly elected and welcomed to the board was attorney Patrick Sullivan. 

President Ted Leach described some of the highlights of the past year, including the renovation of the Attleboro Community Garden and the partnership with the City of Attleboro and Mass Audubon to preserve 80 acres on Handy Street linking the Attleboro Springs preserve with undeveloped City land.

Mayor Kevin Dumas greeted the audience, spoke about the many ways in which the City and the Land Trust have partnered on conservation projects, and read a proclamation in recognition of our 25-year anniversary.

Charlie Adler gave an illustrated history of our first 25 years. Then Ted Leach announced the launching of the fundraising campaign to acquire the Richardson land on Wilmarth and Smith Streets.

Treasurer Roy Belcher honored three current directors for their continuing service to the Land Trust since its founding: Larry St. Pierre, Ted Leach, and Charlie Adler. Roy then announced that a trail will be named for each and he unveiled signs to be placed at each trail.

The evening concluded with anniversary cake and champagne.
