Our Growing Membership

by Meg Kilgore, Membership

In this last fiscal year, not only did Pete Raymond lead the Land Trust through the rigorous process for the Branford Land Trust to become accredited by the Land Trust Alliance, but he also developed a list of Branford homeowners whose property is adjacent to one of our Land Trust properties. In April, Chris Cheney and a crew of helpers sent letters to these homeowners, introducing them to the land trust and asking for their support since they benefit directly from the efforts of the land trust to protect open space for Branford.

Then in May, the annual letter to request our BLT members to renew their membership was also was mailed. The results of both of these efforts gave us 440 current active members. In addition, BLT has 77 Lifetime members, for a total of 517 members.

The Membership Committee consists of Connie Drysdale, who for years has checked our P.O. box and entered all our checks into a spreadsheet, Marcia Wheeler who then posts this information on our membership data base, Chris Cheney and myself who thank you all for your membership, and Bill Horne and Gary Garnet who know the whole procedure and help out as needed.

Thanks to all of our members! And, for others who have overlooked renewing your membership yet this year, CLICK HERE renew your membership now, or send your check to P.O. Box 254, Branford, CT.
