Donations to SSI Land Trust
L to R: Gordon Strouthers, Chairman of Board of Directors for Land Trust accepts check from Vince Marchione, GITC Treasurer. Dana Pope, Land Trust Deputy Director, GITC President, Greg Carver.
Starbucks Foundations' Partner Match also gave $1000 to St. Simons Land Trust. Linda Olsen, a Starbucks Coffee Master, volunteered over 150 hours to the 2013 Sunshine Festival Run and Starbucks matched her time with money. In 2012, Starbucks matched Linda's contribution of "Linda's Bench".
In 2011, The SSI Land Trust used the GITC funds to help purchase Cannon Point. In 2010, GITC dedication plaques were place on four benches on path on Lawrence Road. We hope runners, bikers and walkers alike come out to enjoy the path and take time out to sit on our benches. In 2009, the club donated to Frederica Park and we have a dedication plaque at the entrance to the nature trail and on a bench near the front entrance of the park.
Linda is shown on "Linda's Bench".
Many of the GITC members ran to the 2009 Frederica Park dedication.
