To the Editor:
Dear Sippican School Student Council,
The Board of Directors and staff of the Sippican Lands Trust want to thank the students and your adult leader, Elizabeth Milde, who were involved with your recent “green” fundraiser that benefitted our organization. We are appreciative to have students like you in the community who are committed to helping the environment and consciously make choices to make an impact locally. We think your idea to dress up in green on St. Patty’s Day and connect your fundraiser to a local, “green” cause was very witty and we are extremely impressed by your initiative and efforts.
The Sippican Lands Trust currently owns and manages 1400 acres of open space in Marion. This land is open to the public for recreational enjoyment. We are currently working to open more trails and expand our outreach and event offerings. The money you raised will help us on an ongoing project to create trails and a boardwalk on a new parcel of waterfront land that we will be opening to the public this spring.
Again, we thank you for your support and we hope to see you out on our trails this summer! Keep up the good work!
All of us at the Sippican Lands Trust
