It was the decision of the Legends of Oglethorpe executive committee to
donate a portion of the proceeds for Legends 2014 to Historic Preservation
projects in Lexington.  On February 28th, it was our pleasure to donate
$800 to the Manse renovation project.

Also in 2014, Goodness Grows hosted the H3 Craft Beer Festival where a
portion of the proceeds were also dedicated to Lexington Historic
Preservation projects.  We were able to donate an additional $250 to the
Manse restoration project from this event.The checks were presented to Evelyn Reese, Chairwoman of the Lexington Historic Preservation Committee.

I would like to say thank you to all of the organizers, volunteers,
Sponsors, and most of all, to all of you who attended both of these
events.  It is because of your participation that these funds were made
possible to help enhance our community and the quality of life we all hope
for.

Please plan to attend the 2015 H3 Craft Beer Festival at Goodness Grows on
June 28th, and the 2015 Legends of Oglethorpe on October 24th and 25th.
Your attendance is critical to the success of these events.  Please help
us with our efforts to revitalize the history and heritage of our
beautiful surroundings.

Thank You
Rick Berry
