“We have seen a renewed interest in the Preservation Trust since we released the 2012 significant properties watch list shortly after the first of the year,” said Steve Dietrich, president of the Preservation Trust’s board of directors. “Our membership structure has been modified and for most membership levels tickets are included to our popular Gourmet Gala where the best Lancaster County restaurants offer their finest dishes.”
Beyond the Gourmet Gala benefit, Dietrich said members get discounts to other Preservation Trust events, no-charge access to the Preservation Trust library, Preservation Trust news and information and discounts on books and other items sold by the Preservation Trust. “Most importantly, membership fees provide us with revenue so we will remain an important voice and resource in Lancaster County,” Dietrch added.
Jon and Jen Owens, owners of the Bausman Farmstead in Lancaster Township, are heading up the individual and family drive while Lisa Horst with The Horst Group and Mike Richardson with Janney Montgomery Scott are leading the business/corporate drive.
Mailings will be going out, but for any person or company that does not get a mailing information on membership may be obtained by calling the Preservation Trist at 717-291-5861 or sending an e-mail to nancyhaubert@
