At the Annapolis home of Foundation Director Trish Strott and her husband Greg Strott on June 6, the foundation’s Anna E. Greenberg Legacy Society was offcially inaugurated. Thirty-fve guests celebrated this important milestone in the foundation’s history at a reception at the Strott’s Fishing Creek home featuring refreshments catered by Annapolis’ Light House Bistro.
Born out of the success of the foundation’s Beyond Your Expectations: The Campaign for the Library, the Anna E. Greenberg Legacy Society acknowledges and honors those friends of the library who establish a planned gift of at least $50,000, or make a gift commitment of at least $50,000, designated to the foundation’s endowment.
Named for the Annapolis native and founding member of the library foundation, the society refects Anna’s longtime philanthropic commitment to AACPL and her tireless and outstanding fundraising eforts on behalf of the library. Anna’s service has included four terms as a foundation director and longtime service on the foundation’s events committee, governance committee and on the Beyond Your Expectations campaign leadership committee.
Anna spoke at the event as did Library CEO Skip Auld and Foundation Executive Director Ann Glenn. Highlights of the evening included remarks by both Trish and Lisa Hillman, who spoke of their decisions to become members of the society, and the unveiling of a poster listing the names of the society’s inaugural members. In addition to Anna herself they include: Nancy Choice and John Pietras; Richard and Lisa Hillman; Janet Richardson-Pearson and William Pearson; and Trish and Greg Strott. Each inaugural member received the offcial Anna E. Greenberg Legacy Society lapel pin, a distinctive piece in the shape of a golden tree with a turquoise stone to refect AACPL’s signature color.
