Hall of Fame

As part of our year-long 15th anniversary celebration in 2012, the Westborough Community Land Trust established an ongoing Hall of Fame on our web site, listing some of the many individuals who have contributed to our organization’s growth and participated in our work in various ways. We look forward to additions to these lists as time goes on.
