Veterans Legacy’s Executive Director Dan Buckwald accepting a check for $10,000 from the Impact Club!!! A great group with a great concept!
Veterans Legacy – Camp Alma is in need of a tractor.
Why do we need a tractor? We are at a point in which we are positioned to do more, as we begin to prepare to open Camp Alma for full-time operation and permanent occupation.
We have reached a level in our development that requires more than manual labor for many of the required improvements we are making. In addition, a tractor would greatly aid in the advancement of the agricultural programs that we are developing to support our veteran and community partners.
We are hoping to find a used mid-sized tractor (preferably diesel), with approximately 40 horsepower and low hours. A front end loader is needed as well. We would prefer a donation (tax-deductible) or even a reasonably priced or loaner tractor for several months.
Please feel free to forward to anyone you know that may be able to help! Contact Dan Buckwald at 541-914-0885 with recommendations or suggestions.
Veterans Legacy would like to thank the Emerald Empire Area Council Square Dancers for their support last night. Their fundraising effort garnered over $2,000 for Camp Alma! We hope to host a dance at Camp Alma this summer! Stay tuned… A special thank you to Larry Reetz (USAF Ret) who spearheaded this event!
A Special thank you to DPSST Basic Parole and Probation class #79 for their gift of four goat to Veterans Legacy – Camp Alma. This was their class community service project. I think this is the first time any class has donated livestock! A special thanks to Lane County Parole and Probation Officer Jake Musick. We will receive the goats in the next week.
A big thank you to Doug Kissler from Johnson Air Products in Portland! Mr. Kissler came across this commercial deep fryer and knew we needed one at Camp Alma. Thank you for your continued support of Veterans Legacy!
