[CDT-L] Ruck Raffle....new prize!!!



"The HOSTEL, known as "The Place" is owned and operated by the Damascus
United Methodist Church. "The Place" is now in its twenty-fourth
consecutive year serving hikers and bikers on the Appalachian Trail, The
National Transcontinental Bike Trail, and the Virginia Creeper Trail. It is
estimated that at least thirty to forty thousand people from all over the
United States and many foreign countries have spent one or more nights
there, and for the past three or four years, more than two thousand have
registered each year."

Well "The Place" is in need of our assistance now. The church needs
$20,000.00 to refurbish "The Place". Can you afford to donate five
dollars to help keep this Trail institution available for another quarter
century?
The Ruck is sponsoring a raffle to raise monies for "The Place".
Each raffle ticket is $5, ALL monies go to "The Place" in memory of
Ed Garvey.  When I spoke to one of the members of the hostel
committee who oversees "The Place", he was so sad to learn of
Ed's passing.  He told me of the times he and Ed spent sitting
out front of the hostel talking trail.  So we are pleased to honor
Ed Garvey by keeping this trail institution up and running.

Tickets will be $5 each and will be available at the Ruck or by mail!!
