The Lost Towns Project Advisory Board gathered on September 4th 2015 for their Annual Meeting at the Galesville Community Center. On a  rather sweltering afternoon, we welcomed several new Advisory Board members to the group, including Tom O’Connor, Chris Sperling, and Luc Renaux. The Board was given a brief overview of the projects and activities that LTP has undertaken or sponsored in the past 18 months. The LTP has developed an amazing array of partnerships and the Board is excited to cultivate new projects and partners in the coming year.
