Day, Thursday, April 26, 2007

Augusta, Maine
      The Maine State Legislature honored Trust Directors Sherwood and Lorraine Libby of Limington today in a Legislative Sentiment ceremony.   Speaker of the House Glenn Cummings presented the sentiment.   Senator Jon Courtney of York, Representative Philip Cressey of Cornish, and Senator Bill Diamond of Cumberland cosponsored the following action:

"Recognizing:
     Sherwood and J. Lorraine Libby, of Limington, for their more than 40 years of tireless work to protect Maine's environment and preserve our natural heritage.   Mr. and Mrs. Libby have worked as a team to make major contributions to conservation in Maine.   In 1966, they helped secure passage of the legislation that protects the Allagash Waterway.   In 1971, they labored to secure passage of the legislation creating the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission, known as LURC.   They also worked for the establishment of the Saco River Corridor Commission.   In 1990, Mr. and Mrs. Libby became founding directors of the Francis Small Heritage Land Trust, which owns and preserves 1,400 pristine acres in the Sawyer Mountain Highlands for public use and enjoyment.   Mr. Libby has served as commissioner for LURC, has been chair of the Shoreland Zoning Task Force, served on the Saco River Corridor Commission and has been an affiliated director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine.   Mrs. Libby has served on the Limington Planning Board and the Limington Comprehensive Planning Committee.   We acknowledge their dedicated service to their community and to the State of Maine, and we send them our appreciation for their good works;"
