It was 1947. World War II had just ended. Veterans were returning home, communities like Rye were returning to normal, and Charles Rand, an unmarried man with deep roots in this classic coastal community probably didn’t even realize that in four short years, he’d be married. Charles came from a family that had understood the importance of forests to not only nature, but the economic value they provided to families and communities.
Now, nearly 70 years later, this love of family, land, and community will be furthered by a mother’s decision to honor her son and her husband through the gift of 100 acres to the Southeast Land Trust and the establishment of the Charles E. Rand Memorial Forest.Read more: Giving from the Heart
