Emeritus Awards & New Board Member

Three founders of the Land Trust were recently awarded Emeritus status, most recently Kevin Sprague, who served as Land Trust president during our early years. Charlie Liston and Gige Darey were also awarded Emeritus status, but unfortunately both passed away soon after the presentations of Emeritus status were made. Both had also previously been presented with life-time achievement awards by Lenox Land Trust, as pictured below.

 Bill Gop, superintendent of public works for the Town of Lenox, has been elected to our board. Having grown up in Lenoxdale, he recently returned to his home town, bringing wide-ranging experience and a degree in conservation. He has quickly established himself as an important asset to the Town, and we welcome him to our board.
