Land Trust Oyster Roast:

Another Enchanted Evening

Members and Friends Celebrate

Oyster Roast Chair and FriendsThe 11th Annual St. Simons Land Trust Oyster Roast, held Nov. 20 under the moss-draped live oaks at the Fort Frederica National Monument, was just as magical as every roast that's gone before.

What does it take to turn the Land Trust's signature event into an enchanted evening year after year? In a word: Volunteers. More than 100 of them.

Oyster RoastersTo make it happen, there are chairmen and committees for oyster roasting, food donations, food pick-up, beverages, entertainment, set-up, clean-up, and publicity.  There are the restaurants that donate their mouth-watering specialties, the teams that roast the oysters and prepare the low country boil, the Pirates of the Spanish Main who serve the food and the volunteers who replenish the buffet table, the bar tenders, the ticket-takers and the rangers who make guests welcome.

To every one of you, a huge St. Simons Land Trust THANK YOU!

And to every one of our more than 700 guests, thank you for attending. We hope to see you again next year!

Two artists, one painting benefit Land Trust

Everett and Powers team up

Powers Everett Left Bank AuctionIn a burst of holiday generosity, landscape artists Peggy Everett and Janet Powers teamed up to create a landscape masterpiece together for the benefit of the Land Trust.  According to gallery owner Millie Wilcox: "It was a happening!"

The two completed the painting within less than an hour during the opening reception of their "Two Masters of the Landscape" exhibit at the Left Bank Art Gallery earlier this month. The painting was auctioned off during the reception at the gallery on St. Simons Island and the proceeds became an early Christmas gift to the St. Simons Land Trust.

Thanks, Janet and Peggy!!
