At its annual meeting on Oct. 22, the Granby Land Trust bestowed its highest honor—the Mary Edwards Friend of the Land Trust Award—on Charlie and Joan Katan of West Granby.
Charlie, a geologist by training and a naturalist by inclination, was a founder of the GLT. He volunteered for years, providing wise counsel to the board; leading many woodland hikes and other educational activities; and acting as an effective spokesman for the land trust. Joan gave horseback riding lessons and, by example, she showed hundreds of students the pleasures of being outside. For their years of dedication, their stewardship of the natural world and the example they were to others, the GLT is proud to award Charlie and Joan Katan the 2017 Mary Edwards Friend of the Land Trust Award.
While Charlie couldn’t attend the ceremony, Joan was there to accept the honor from board member Put Brown.
Joan quipped that while she couldn’t possibly fill Charlie’s shoes, she was, in fact, wearing his socks. She then spoke of the link between Granby’s beautiful places and its people and the close relationship she and Charlie had with the land; and she said she trusted that the GLT would continue its work to protect Granby’s natural beauty.
West Granby resident Ralph Eustis (pictured on right) was honored with Hartford Habitat’s Outstanding Construction Volunteer award for his exceptional service to Hartford Area Habitat for Humanity. Director of Construction Kris McKelvie presented the award at Habitat’s Volunteer Appreciation Celebration on October 18, 2017, at the Mark Twain Museum.
Eustis, a seasoned construction volunteer, is one of Habitat’s “Weekday Saints” who volunteer tirelessly year round building Habitat’s affordable homes throughout greater Hartford. As a regular crew leader, Eustis leads the daily work assignments of volunteer crews through expert instruction and positive coaching. During 2016 Eustis could be found almost daily at the Habitat home built on West Granby Road to ensure its timely construction. “We are grateful for Ralph’s commitment to Habitat’s mission of building homes, community, and hope,” said Don Shaw, Jr., Habitat board member emeritus, and Granby resident.
