As we move closer to our Fall Ramble to Washington, The Trust honors a long-time member and passionate advocate for preservation in Georgia, Miss Betty Slaton.
During another Ramble to Washington in 1988, Miss Betty first joined The Trust as a member and helped to provide an insider's aid. Two decades of membership and activism later, she is serving as Ramble Committee Chair and making sure that doors across Washington and Danburg open for The Trust's tour. Miss Betty is dedicated to the preservation of her town- and Washington has benefited from her attentions.
A former teacher, local historian and member of the DAR, Miss Betty's keen attention to detail and real love for her town will shine through in this Ramble. Leading a qualified and attentive committee, Betty and the ladies have carefully arranged this tour, and it reflects a diversity of sites that highlight Washington's unique charms. We at The Trust have come to treasure Miss Betty for her perspective and scholarship, her commitment and spirit. We are grateful for her past efforts, and we look forward to continuing to work with her for years to come.
