WCCO-TV Interview

Here is a link to our WCCO-TV story which aired last night on the 10pm news.

Monday, November 10, 2008


Tomorrow, 11/11, the Minnesota Chapter of TNL is going to be featured on WCCO News at 10pm! A big thanks to Liz Collin, Megan Brown, and everyone else at WCCO-TV who found this topic to be interesting and worthy of doing a story on. I can't wait to see it!

In other news, Nicole, Derek, and I went to Madison this week for the annual TNL Planning Retreat. We discussed the goals set a year ago, our progress, and our plans for the future. Now that we officially have IRS 501(c)3 Nonprofit Status we will have a lot more donation and grant opportunities. We worked on establishing a land search committee and our executive director, Mark, is developing a conservation cemetery operator's manual which will help us transition smoothly when appropriate land is found and acquired. We have a great team and a lot of passionate people working hard to make this happen. I feel confident that within a few years we will have a conservation cemetery up and running.

Right now we just need to get the word out. Watch WCCO tomorrow night! Tell your friends! Invite us to come and give a presentation! And finally, think about becoming a member!
