Friends and admirers of the late Mary Anne Guitar, former six-term First Selectman and Redding Land Trust founder and long-time president, gathered at Town Hall on December 6 to celebrate the unveiling of Guitar’s photograph on the wall outside the Hearing Room. The covering curtains were pulled by her cousin Mary Guitar and good friend Laurie Hiess who paid tribute to one of Redding’s outstanding civic and conservation leaders.


Champagne and cake enlivened the gathering into the early evening hours. while in the late afternoon hearty souls had met at Guitar’s property to walk the four acres she left to the Land Trust and to plot a future important trail.
