Member Appreciation Weekend, Jul 31-Aug 2

Breakfast at Member's Weekend 2014 Breakfast at Member's Weekend 2014 Doug Bates

This is our chance to give a big Thank You! to all of our members. Thanks for your support! Orient Land Trust depends on your contributions. Your memberships have enabled us to pour water on the hayfields, protect the mine history and bat habitat, stock the freezer with organic grass fed beef, welcome geologists from high schools and colleges, provide research opportunities for biologists, create a thriving habitat for rare fish. Of course, the land has been protected from development and we have protected the open space from becoming a patchwork of splintered properties. Valley View Hot Springs remains the oasis.

During Members Appreciation Weekend, the capacity limits are eased. If you are a member, you are welcome. This means that it is more crowded than any other weekend. We have a band on Friday Night, Gumbo Jets, and we have a second band on Saturday night, Hippies with Blondes. On Saturday afternoon, we invite everyone to provide food at a potluck that is ever changing and reminiscent of the loaves and fishes. Sunday morning, OLT staff cooks you breakfast. Throughout the weekend, the fine espresso and lattes that have in previous years been sold by Saguache Espresso will be for sale again this year. All members are invited! Move over, make room, and share the pools and campsites with members from all over.

Silent Auction: Clean out your Attic/ Garage. Art and artifacts welcome but lower priced items sell better! Bring a unique item to donate for our Silent Auction on Saturday morning. Please email or call Pam Nelson at 719-298-2289 if you are planning to donate something for the auction.
