ECWG members and their guess enjoyed a picnic on a perfect summer’s day on July 25, 2015 at the working farm of Dr. Stephen W.J. Seager, FN 95 and his wife Dora in The Plains, Va.
“Dear Dr. Seager, As chair of the ECWG, I want to thank you for inviting ECWG members and their guests to your beautiful and fascinating farm on July 25. I’m sure I’m speaking for everyone who was there when I say that your farm is the perfect setting for a delightful picnic. We especially appreciated your taking us on the hayride tour.
“One of the highlights was your explanation of the stately elm trees and your efforts to protect some of the few elms now growing in North America. Your stories of the history of the farm and its buildings help us appreciate how your land is a fascinating part of American history.
“All in all, the July 25 picnic is one of the highlights of this year’s ECWG’s activities.”
Jack Williams, Chair, ECWG
