We are excited to update you on great progress on our important Well and Mower projects and the Darrell Westover match program. First the good news: The well at the ranch has been repaired. We have a brand new submersible pump and required new pipe installed and ready to test when we open the building for the season. Next, we have a terrific start on the money needed for the new mower.
You will recall that Darrell Westover pledged to match up to $5000 in 50 and 100 dollar donations for these two most urgent needs. Families already taking advantage of his offer have helped tremendously. Not only have we received a number such donations, but we have also been thrilled to receive some small but very valued donations from families with modest resources and even little children. Amazingly, Dad is still with us, though growing weaker every day, and he has asked us to thank each of you who has participated so far. His offer still stands. His vision is for every family to support the ranch. Every donation of any amount is appreciated. Every family member is important, regardless of their financial resources. We ask you to do what you can, be it large or small.
