Wednesday, September 15, we celebrated “Midge Gourde Day.” Last year on this day, the Gourde Family, established the Richard & Catherine Gourde Scholarship Endowment for Saint Olaf Catholic School, providing a yearly, need-based, student scholarship. As many of you know, Midge and Richard sent 11 children (plus have encouraged many grandchildren) through Utah Catholic Schools. Midge has never forgotten the significance of her children’s Catholic education and hopes to ensure a Saint Olaf education remains available to students into the future. We are honored to have a “Midge student” each year as we recognize this gift. This years’ recipient is Theresa Ruffing. In her lifetime, Midge will have helped dozens of students receive a Catholic education. Midge desires to see the endowment continue to grow and joyfully encourages any and all to contribute. Please see the original stories and photos from last year on our website under News and Announcements. Thank you Midge and the Gourde Family. You are making a significant difference in the lives of our students!

The Ogden Valley Land Trust and Summit Land Conservancy are working with willing landowners to protect an iconic 1,084-acre property that was once home to the Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity, a Trappist Cistercian monastery established in 1947 in Huntsville, Utah.
We are reaching out to the community to ask for financial help to partially compensate the owners of the monastery property for the value of the conservation easement they are creating. We need to raise the final $300,000 for this project. We welcome anyone who will join us in saving this legacy for future generations by protecting valuable open space from development; preserving an iconic, historical, spiritual landmark; and ensuring the survival of critical habitat for the Valley’s amazing wildlife. Tax deductible donations will ensure that the monk’ memory and this beautiful crown jewel in Ogden Valley will be protected forever.
Donors can give to either Ogden Valley Land Trust @ www.OgdenValleyLandTrust.org or to Summit Land Conservancy at www.WeSaveLand.org Designate your gift for the ”Monastery”.
Checks may be made payable to: The Ogden Valley Land Trust PO Box 412, Huntsville UT 84317
