Thank you to our friends at Liberty Mutual who joined us for the week of May 4th-8th and participated in the "Serve with Liberty" program. Thirty-five volunteers of four teams, helped at three different Great Works locations in Berwcik, Ogunquit and North Berwick. Volunteers cleaned up trash on properties, re-created an existing trail, battled invasive plants, painted and cleaned office space. Thank you to the Liberty Mutual workers who made this day possible!

Nancy & Joe Geneseo give a lot of hours to GWRLT. They work on bulk mailings, help to organize and solicit items and advertising for both of our auctions, and have always given a hand during land trust events. Nancy and Joe even helped us move into our offices last year! Joe has taken the lion’s share of the work of mowing the yards at Beach Plum Farm each year from spring through the fall.
Meet Ray and Theresa Wilkinson of South Berwick. Married for 48 years, they’ve been members of, and volunteers for, Great Works Regional Land Trust for more than two years. They help out in a variety of ways, including trail marking and cleanup, and boundary marking, and together they sit on the Great Works Stewardship Committee.Though his sign-making techniques have been varied over the years, Ray uses a router and a template to create handsome, long-lasting wood signs for Great Works. Before carving out the letters with the router, he first covers the wood surface with an adhesive pattern material, and then lays out the lettering using the template. Finally, he paints the routed letters with white enamel paint, peeling off the pattern material afterward, leaving the painted letters with neat, precise edges.
Thank you to the volunteers who have contributed time and talent to Great Works this past winter and spring!
