Letter from the President

It is good to embrace the season of cool days, cold nights and warm hearts!  This is a time to take stock and give thanks for all the good others have shared with us through our years.  Empowered by good we are blessed with grace. 

Grace is embodied on the board of the Person Place Preservation society by the Greater Franklin County Citizen of the Year, Betsy Burnette Benning and by this year’s recipient of the Elizabeth May Service Award, Linda Cottrell.  Congratulations to both of these fine people who have brought ingenuity, talent, treasure and grace to our enterprise.

Members of the Person Place Preservation Society are well represented by a dedicated board of directors that are individually and collectively remarkable for their ability to organize, document and market the activities of the Society.  I hope that this coming year the opportunity arises for you all to become acquainted with our board members. 

I am forever thankful for this opportunity to be of service and I wish a happy Christmastide to each and every one of you.


Holt Kornegay, President PPPS
