Former President John Anderson
Former President John Anderson holds framed photo honoring his contributions to the Chapter


At our April 19th Annual Meeting the Chapter elected new Board Members and a new slate of Officers. Having served on the board for over a decade, and as Chapter President for two years, outgoing President John Anderson steps down and is replaced by Star Childs. The photo shows John accepting a framed photograph of a emerging chestnut seedling with an inscription thanking him for his service and contributions.

Frame was made and presented by former Chapter President Bill Adamsen. The frame was fabricated of American chestnut found in an old structure here in Connecticut. We’re always looking for chestnut which can be used for such purposes … if you have some please reach out to your local Board Member.
