In Memory of and In Grateful Recognition, The Meriden Land Trust remembers Philip T. Ashton and Dwight L. Needels . We want to express our immense appreciation for their tireless efforts to preserve Meriden’s natural resources and pave the path for future land preservation. 

They both served in Meriden Land Trust leadership roles and their contributions were countless.  Each of them were instrumental in the successful efforts to preserve the Bilger Farm and then dedicated themselves to working toward the preservation of Chauncey Peak. 

 We will always remember and be inspired by their dedication, enthusiasm, and drive.  Two different men, both who made an impact by contributing and giving their time and talents.
