Come Have Fun With Us at Annual Meeting!

Come join the fun at our Annual Meeting at Farm and Wilderness Camps in Plymouth, VT on Thursday, September 19 from 5:30 – 7:00!

~ A $20 donation suggested~

We’ll kick things off with a social hour at Indian Brook Lodge with snacks catered by Farm and Wilderness, a cash bar provided by East Creek Catering of Rutland, and great conversation.

Author Ben Hewitt of Cabot will speak about his books, including The Town that Food Saved, about the agricultural entrepreneurs who helped develop a sustainable economy in Hardwick. VNRC’s Advisory Committee member Bill McKibben called it “a smart and lovely book about a smart and lovely experiment.” Hewitt’s other works include Making Supper Safe and his latest, $aved, in which he examines the role of money in the modern world.

We’ll also present the 2013 Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership to Bob Klein of The Nature Conservancy. This award is presented annually to a Vermont resident who embodies qualities similar to Arthur Gibb, the Vermont lawmaker who dedicated much of his life to public service and a healthy environment. Since becoming the executive director of the Vermont Chapter of The Nature Conservancy in 1979, Klein has built a legacy for Vermont that Arthur Gibb personally supported. In addition to building an organization with over 6,500 members, he has been the foremost leader in protecting Vermont’s fragile natural communities.

Finally, we’ll approve new board members who will help guide us forward: Richard Czaplinski of Adamant and John Echeverria of Strafford.

Don’t miss this fun and festive evening! For more information or to register, please contact Mari Zagarins at mzagarins@vnrc.org or (802) 223-2328 ext 121.
