Lloyd Hull Memorial Oak Tree Dedication

On November 23, 2018, friends and family gathered on the lawn of the Round Hill Community House to pay tribute to Lloyd Hull, a much beloved former Director and President of the Round Hill Association.  A resident of backcountry for 60 years, Lloyd devoted a tremendous amount of energy and time to preserving and enhancing what we all love about this area of town.
