The Georges River Land Trust welcomes Glen E. Rainsley as its new major gifts manager as it looks toward the celebration of its 25th anniversary in 2012.

“My family and I have cherished living in the St. George River watershed for over a decade. We deeply appreciate the area’s recreational opportunities, varied wildlife and rich history. We love the river and the land. My admiration for GRLT’s mission and accomplishments drew me to this position. I hope to encourage many others to support the great work that benefits everyone who lives or visits here,” said Rainsley.

After 30 years serving as pastor of churches in three states, Rainsley worked as development director at New Hope for Women. He also has been a longtime tennis instructor and professional writer. Rainsley and his wife, Susan, employed at Medomak High School, live in Appleton; their daughter and her fiance live in Bar Harbor where both work at Jackson Labs. Rainsley enjoys fishing, reading, vegetable gardening, Celtic music and anything related to the New York Mets.

“I look forward to further exploring the watershed and to engaging people in conservation projects. We have a place to treasure,” he said.
