The many celebrations that marked our 75th anniversary during 2012 and 2013 were exciting, but for those of us who love preservation work and the people who support these projects, the fun is just beginning.
We have benefited from the generosity of our members, our donors, and the general public who have embraced our programs, old and new. The milestone of our 75th anniversary offered us a unique opportunity to showcase your favorite programs in a different light and introduce new initiatives with partners from across our nine-county service area. We are proud to be considered the subject-matter experts on preservation in Western New York, but we are equally pleased to be valued for our ability to work in revitalizing neighborhoods and small communities, and to play a part in teaching the next generation about adaptive reuse.
The work of The Landmark Society of Western New York reflects the interests and demands of the communities that we serve and our members who are committed to our mission. We value your confidence in us and we need your ongoing support, not only through membership dollars, but also through contributions to the Annual Fund. Both funding sources are critical to furthering the work we all embrace. We stand on the shoulders of our members and donors over the last 75 years.
