Pee Dee Land Trust held a building dedication/ribbon cutting for its new home on Cheves Street in Florence on Tuesday, June 7th.
The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce staff and ambassadors joined trust supporters, board members and local leaders for the occasion. Lunch was served on the grounds.
The building is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Margaret Eugene “Genie” Lee and her love for the Pee Dee Watershed. It was Lee’s estate gift to Pee Dee Land Trust that made the purchase possible. It is the organization’s first permanent home, after having rented space prior.
Members of the Lee family attended the dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony.Located at 448 W. Cheves St., the Trust’s new office is a 1950s brick craftsman-style home that was transitioned in the late 1980’s to commercial office use.
