Phyllis’ leadership at D&R Greenway Land Trust left an impressive legacy.

Those of us fortunate to spend time with Phyllis Marchand knew we were in the presence of a special person who
brought people together to achieve big things while elevating everyone involved. On October 17, please join a
select group of family, friends, and members of the D&R Greenway community for a tribute to Phyllis,
who left this Earth on March 25 at the age of 81.
This will be an Outdoor Open House, a chance to share stories among friends, with entertainment but no formal remarks.

The Steve Hiltner Jazz Band will play Phyllis’ Phavorite Songs.

Enjoy a soft drink & take home a bag of Phyllis’ Phavorite Things.

This event will be outdoors for COVID safety.

Parking at Greenway Meadows and Johnson Park School
Accessible Parking is available at the Johnson Education Center by request.
Please let us know if you have special needs for parking at dkilmer@drgreenway.org.

Your advance RSVP will enable us to inform you of any change in plans in case of inclement weather.
