In appreciation: Donald Ross
SALISBURY — The Salisbury Association was honored to have Donald serve as our president from 2019-2021. He cared deeply about our community and supported our Association’s mission with his leadership, his generosity, and his personal commitment. He was very involved with our Land Trust which helps conserve our natural resources; Donald and Helen established an easement on their land to protect the beautiful view of Lake Wononscopomuc from Route 44. He enjoyed history and supported our Historical Society which helps preserve our community’s heritage; Donald and Helen restored their historic home, Holleywood, with great care and authenticity. He was committed to our Community Events programs, as well as the importance and survival of our local newspaper, The Lakeville Journal.
On a personal note—I served with Donald on both the Salisbury Association and Salisbury Forum boards. We enjoyed brainstorming ideas with each other and seeing many implemented. He was easy to work with and knew how to effectively network with so many people. He was intelligent, dedicated, and involved with social issues throughout his life, faithfully joining demonstrators every Saturday morn on the Village Green. Above all, Donald was a gentleman—soft spoken, kind, and dedicated to his beloved wife, Helen and their two daughters.
The Salisbury Association and our community have lost one of our best.
President, Salisbury Association
