From the Desk of the President: 2008 Winter Newsletter

Harry V. Webster, Jr.In the course of receiving our annual membership renewals a while back, something happened that spurred a change in our thinking. One of our members, Rebecca Pearce of Baltimore, wrote a note on the donation form suggesting we use a new description called “believer” to describe her donation and her feelings for the mission of Harford Land Trust. We became aware that there are many believers and that when another is found, it is so important to our organization because we grow. We share our story of positive human spirit because it is our mission to help our community in many ways; sometimes it is in facilitating the expansion of a nature park and another time is enjoying the fruit of new ideas found blossoming from our membership.

For all who "believe," please help us share our mission by introducing HLT to folks who want to support us in some way and are not yet members. Harford Land Trust is embarking on a time-critical membership expansion starting in January.
{josquote}The environment after all, is where we all meet Where we all have mutual interests It is the one thing that all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, But a focusing lens on what we can become.

This is a short message. Please read the "New Member Challenge," and, when you receive your packet containing brochures, highlights of our land conservation projects, a map and list of properties for outdoor activities, share the good news with someone else and encourage them to join.  We need every member to help preserve land and protect Harford County and its natural resources.

You may find out more information by calling Peg Niland 410-836-2103, or going on line to visit our new web site www.harfordlandtrust.org
