Dear friends,

It is with great sadness that I’m writing to share the news that MHLC founding member Dan Driscoll passed away earlier this week.

The Altamont Enterprise ran a beautiful story about Dan yesterday.  I’m also attaching Dan’s obituary.

A Memorial Mass will be held on 10:00 AM Tuesday, Aug. 2, at St. Matthew’s Church at 25 Mountainview Street in Voorheesville with a reception to follow.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, 425 Kenwood Ave., Delmar, NY 12054, www.mohawkhudson.org

For those who did not know Dan, he was a founding board member and past President of MHLC as well as a major force in the development of the organization and its continued success for the past 24 years.  Dan always stayed involved with MHLC, along with a myriad of his other activities and passions.  He was the preserve steward at the Winn Preserve next to his home for many years and as recently as a month ago was working on a new trail with a local eagle scout despite his declining health.

Dan’s enthusiasm, commitment and the ever present twinkle in his eye will truly be missed.
