Land Trust Celebrates Silver Anniversary

Photos by Nick Mele

Over 350 guests joined in the fun of a “Turn of the Century Fair”-themed Fiesta Verde at Sweet Berry Farm on July 25 in support of the Aquidneck Land Trust’s 25th anniversary. This year, ALT has conserved over 2,500 acres of open space on Aquidneck Island. The event raised more than $215,000, which will go to support ALT’s ongoing time-sensitive mission of conserving open space in Newport, Middletown and Portsmouth. Guests were greeted by a Dixieland trio, signature cocktails and stilt walkers, and partied the night away with palm readers, tarot card readers and astrologers. Both the silent and live auctions were well bid and the gourmet fair food provided by Mc- Grath’s Clambake & Catering was exceptional.
