Success!!! The Lower Green will soon have its view protected.

Just received this wonderful news!

“Essex County Greenbelt and the Save the Lower Green Committee are thrilled to announce that the Campaign to Protect Newman Farm Meadow reached a successful conclusion this week.  Thanks to a larger number of individual contributions received over the last month, along with key grant awards, Greenbelt and Save the Lower Green were able to reach the  $500,000 campaign goal before their September 30 deadline.”   

I kept imagining this nightmare scenario that all that money was raised but falling far short of the goal.

Sending all the money donated back with a note:

“The historic setting of the Lower Green has been lost forever…never to be seen again in our lifetime.”

Rarely do you see a campaign where your money has the positive affect on our national heritage not just for one moment in time but for our children’s children’s future.
