Bleakley Platt to Sponsor Orange County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast

May 2008

Bleakley Platt is proud to sponsor the Orange County Chamber of Commerce General Membership Breakfast on June 17, 2008, featuring Keynote Speaker Jonathan Mogelever, Director of Development, Orange County Land Trust. Mr. Mogelever will talk about the Orange County Land Trust’s mission of preserving “the fields, forests, wetlands, ridgelines and river corridors in Orange County,” while still supporting responsible growth in the county. The Orange County Land Trust has been in existence since 1993 and has preserved 3,000 acres of land and water throughout the county through voluntary protection. The Trust is currently in the process of re-evaluating its mission, with a goal of creating a stronger presence for land conservation in Orange County, as well as to enhance public understanding of the Trust, including the fact that it is not anti-growth nor anti-development.

The General Membership Breakfast will be held at Kuhl’s Highland House located at 512 Highland Avenue Extension in Middletown. Reservations for this event can be made by contacting the Orange County Chamber of Commerce at (845) 457-9700.
