Garden Party in Taos, a Great Community Builder

Taos Garden Party hosted by Dan Jones Taos Garden Party hosted by Dan Jones Chris & Betsy Miller

About 28 people gathered at the beautiful Zero Energy home and gardens of former OLT Board President Dan Jones on Sunday August 17th to support OLT's Wastewater Treatment Plant Campaign. Fresh vegetables from Dan's garden and greenhouse, cookies from Matt's Bakery in Taos and local wine and beer samplings in abundance added to the festive afternoon! New Executive Director Doug Bishop, OLT founders Neil and Terry Seitz, and Board Members Chris Miller and John Standish attended, along with Development Director, Pam Nelson. $2700 was raised (net) from this "$100 pp suggested donation" event. OLT thanks Dan Jones for his generous hosting of this event and for preparing all the sumptuous hors d'oeuvres fresh from his garden. As fundraising plans ramp up to fund the WWTP upgrades, we encourage others to host such regional benefit gatherings in their homes. Please contact Pam Nelson if interested in hosting such an event at 719-298-2289 or if you are able to suggest any no cost/ low cost venues on the Front Range for larger speaker events and/ or similar smaller gatherings. All fundraising ideas are welcome and will be shared with the new External Affairs Committee for discussion.
