Annual General Meeting 

The Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust AGM took place on Wednesday, May 27  at 7 p.m.  and was conducted via Zoom.

Participants were shown highlights from 2019 including the 8 ‘Discover the Wild’ field workshops, the Festival of the Wild Child and the Fall Gala. MMLT saluted the businesses that had sponsored these events. It was noted that the number of members had increased in 2019 and that eighty members had volunteered their time and energy to make it all happen. MMLT expressed its gratitude to its donors for their generous financial contributions, so essential to its work.

President Bob Betcher presented his Report from the Board which described the many changes at MMLT in 2019 and the particular challenges it faces this year. While no new properties had been acquired, discussions continue with 6 landowners.

The Treasurer, Stephen Kotze then summarized the annual financial statements from 2019 which showed a small surplus for the year. He observed that MMLT should be able to ‘weather’ an anticipated reduction in income in 2020 caused by the cancellation of fundraising events by drawing on reserves accumulated in previous years.

MMLT said its farewells to Bobby Clarke and Bethany Armstrong who are leaving the Board after six years of service and welcomed two new board members, Dale Dilamarter and Bruce Benton.
