Southern Calvert Land Trust


We all lost a good friend last week.  Nancie Hillsman passed away at home on Sunday, 12/13/15 where she had spent her last few weeks looking out at her beautiful garden, cared for by her daughters Suzan and Joanna and carefully guarded by her little dog Cody. Nancie and her husband Joe, who passed away 18 years ago, were long time residents of Drum Point. They were active in the Drum point Club where Nancie served as president in 1985/86. As president of the Drum Point Club, She oversaw the sale of the community roads, rights of way and other properties to the Drum Point Road Company, which later became the Drum Point Property Owners Association. She and Joe, along with other early members, planted the tree farm at the Drum Point Club which preserved unbuildable land. Nancie was a charter member of the Southern Calvert Land Trust and had served as it's president since it's inception almost 15 years ago. She was a dedicated Mother, Grandmother, friend, gardener, yogini and supporter and protector of the environment and the community. She also served on the nominating committee for the Drum Point Property Owners Association for several years. If you would like to help celebrate Nancie's life and commitment to the community, please send a tax deductible donation to Southern Calvert Land Trust, PO Box 1745, Lusby, MD 20657(make check out to SCLT). Please indicate that it will go to the Nancie Hillsman Fund. We will plant a tree for her on May 15 at SCLT's 15th anniversary gathering. All contributors will be invited to attend a celebration and reception in her honor at the Drum Point Club on the afternoon of May 15, 2016.
