In House: One method of marketing is to bring as many visitors to the Arboretum as possible. The Marketing Committee contacted both the Schoharie County and Montgomery County Chambers of Commerce to invite them to host their “Business After Hours” at the Meeting House. The September 6th event was well attended, featured an update of Arboretum projects, showcased the sculptures recently installed, and highlighted the plans for the addition to the Meeting House. This event was sponsored by our friends, the Winsman family.
Out in the Region: Board of Trustees member Earl Van Wormer and Advisory Board member Gail Browning participated in the groundbreaking ceremony (replete with shovels and hard hats) for the next NY Rising project in the Town of Esperance, the municipal building on Route 30A in Sloansville.
Anne Donnelly, Volunteer Coordinator and Board Advisor, and Gail Browning attended a reception for the opening of the exhibit “Walking the Steel: From Girder to Ground Zero” at the Iroquois Museum. The program included an introduction of Mohawk Nation mural artist Jay Havens. Anne hosted Jay Havens while he was in residence – and, naturally, gave him a tour of Landis.
