Pancakes & CLC’s Capital Campaign

Thank you to everyone that came out and made our 2018 Pancake Breakfast such a success!

It’s always such a treat to see our community of members come together to enjoy some great food and even better company.  This year, the breakfast was made extra special – we announced the CLC’s Capital Campaign – Columbia County Tomorrow, an effort to raise at least $7 million dollars to bring our work to the next level.  Over the last year, generous donors have already contributed over $6.5 million toward the campaign, so we are almost there!

The three main goals of the campaign are to make it possible for CLC to 1) act quickly to conserve critical parcels of land, 2) steward our 4,000-acre system of Public Conservation Areas to the highest standard, and 3) substantially expand our education and outreach programs.

If you’d like to learn more, please visit the campaign webpage.  You can make a contribution online, by mail, or by giving us a call at 518.392.5252, ext. 202.  Right now, your donation will be doubled, thanks to a pool of donors who have offered $175,000 toward a community match!

Once again, thank you to everyone that attended the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday! If you couldn’t make it, we hope to see you next year!  We would like to extend special thanks to the following:

  • Tri-form Camphill for hosting us and providing a wonderful performance by the bell choir
  • Mara and everyone at Simons Catering for cooking up delicious and creative pancakes (10 different flavors!)
  • The Mountain Laurel Band for delightful toe-tapping tunes!
