HGA participates in community project with Tourism Cares

Hosts Global Alliance (HGA) is displaying their H Factor as they participate in the Living Legacy Tree Planting Project with Tourism Cares. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Tourism Cares, in conjunction with The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership, will work to plant trees to honor and pay tribute fallen Civil War soldiers.

Over the next two days volunteers will gather in Loudoun County, Virginia to plant more than 1,000 trees along the historic corridor where the foundation of America was built. This is one part of a large scale project which consists of planting a total of 620,000 trees to honor fallen soldiers of the Civil War. Upon completion, the Living Legacy Project will create the first 180-mile landscape allée in the world and the only one dedicated to memorializing those fallen in the American Civil War.  

On hand to represent Hosts Global Alliance in this project is Marty MacKay, DMCP, President of HGA.  Joining her from Hosts DC, their local DMC member, is Lyndsi Armenio, Director of Sales, and Logan Bilderback, Sales Coordinator. Marty MacKay comments, “HGA is grateful for the opportunity to partner with Tourism Cares and the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership on this project. One of the core values in our company vision is to be Heroes for each other, for our community, and for our industry. This is the perfect opportunity for us to live that vision, while honoring our county’s fallen heroes at the same time.”
