In 1977, Judith Stanley Coleman and a group of visionaries founded the Monmouth Conservation Foundation to protect the spectacular open space, natural resources and the integrity of Monmouth County. On the evening of September 22, the MCF will celebrate the 35th anniversary of this vital mission with a dinner dance themed "Art in Nature & Nature in Art", at Fairway Farm, Middletown. The event theme "Art in Nature & Nature in Art" addresses the dynamic synergy of art and nature and serves as a tribute to 2012 honorees Joan and Robert Rechnitz. Dr. Rechnitz is a longstanding member of the MCF Advisory Council and founder, along with Joan, of The Two River Theater. In addition, MCF supporters Ann and Thomas Unterberg will serve as Honorary Chairmen of the celebration Echoing the Foundation's dedication to harmony with the environment and in support of the Garden State's farmers, the menu for the evening will feature local, seasonal and artisanal fare showcasing an array of ingredients from New Jersey's fields and farms. A wide array of enticing items will be offered during a live and a silent auction. Then, as the moon rises and the stars illuminate the beautiful vista, the popular band Somer's Dream will invite all to dance the night away. The only countywide land trust, Monmouth Conservation Foundation has protected over 6,500 acres of land to date including the 40 acre Fairway Farm, formerly known as the Ellis Estate.
