The Kennebunk Land Trust held its annual Thank You To Community Reception at the Brick Store Museum Program Center yesterday evening, Wednesday, September 13th. The event began with a formal meeting to recap the work the Trust engaged in this year. KLT Board Chair, Tom Wellman, welcomed guests and provided an overview of the organization’s success throughout the year; KLT Director, Gordon Collins, highlighted a number of exciting collaborations with local businesses, partnerships with peer conservation organizations, the integration of operational processes, and the enhancement and diversification of the Trust’s communication and outreach.
The meeting portion of the event concluded with thoughts provided by two well recognized guest speakers, Kate Cheney Chappell and Tom Chappell, founders of Tom’s of Maine. The couple shared how their passion for the community and interest in conservation are cornerstones of the life they have built in Kennebunk.
A reception began after the meeting and allowed folks an opportunity to reconnect with one another, meet new people, and share their experiences and interest in the Land Trust. The Land Trust is thankful for all those who shared their time with us and helped us celebrate another year of conservation work!
