Kingston, NY –   The Kingston Land Trust is proud to announce the addition of Lee Anne Albritton to their Board of Directors. Lee Anne lives in the city of Kingston with her partner and editor of Chronogram magazine Brian Mahoney.  She spent 14 years developing childcare and family programming for the YMCA helping to create “Healthy Kids” that brought gardens into the New Paltz school curriculum and changed some menu offerings towards healthier school nutrition.  Her other credits include the involvement at the YMCA Southern Ulster Branch, Ulster County Action Network’s youth program coalition, New Paltz youth commission and the Ellenville/Wawarsing youth commission.  She spent time volunteering for the Queens Galley Operation Frontline and currently proof reads and works doing web content management for the Chronogram/Luminary publication. Lee Anne also works to create youth programming for the Kingston YMCA Children’s Garden with garden steward Ed Blouin, where they plan to expand the community garden plots this season with the support of the Creating Healthy Places grant recently secured by Cornell Cooperative Extension where the Kingston Land Trust is a partner.

“I’ve had the chance to work with Lee Anne since last October on several Kingston Land Trust programs,” says Rebecca Martin, Executive Director of the Kingston Land Trust. “It’s exciting that Lee Anne has joined our team. She is a true professional and is trusted by those who have had the privilege to work with her. Lee Anne’s grant writing, program management and staff and volunteer empowerment skills will help us further our efforts in connecting people to places in the city of Kingston, town of Kingston and town of Ulster.”

Lee Anne will work closely with the Kingston Land Trust Executive Director and Board Directors to develop an internship program for the Kingston Land Trust.
