Supporting the Orchard - it's Personal
Each time I sit down to find creative ways to encourage each of you to support the historic Buckner Orchard through donations, memberships, and volunteer work, I find it easy to list a variety of reasons why you should be a part of what we do.
In my reflections this year, I've come to the realization that support for the Orchard truly is personal.
For me, its easy; Harry Buckner was my grandfather and we lived in the Buzzard Cabin until I was six. I spent many summers there, including five summers during my college years working for theForest Service on trail crews and fire standby. During that same time, college friends and I would often spend our Christmas break in a wood stove-heated cabin with no insulation when temperatures dropped into the teens and below. Evenings were spent playing Yahtzee with Harry and Lena, once snowshoeing to the Buckner home through 18 inches of fresh snow. Today, retired, my wife, Christine, our two dogs, and I spend as much time as we can volunteering at the Orchard.
We all have our own experiences that make the Buckner Orchard meaningful and personal. Most are as simple as enjoying the location, the peace and tranquility, the history and beauty, or appreciating the wonderful Common Delicious apples.
Please join me today in supporting the Buckner Orchard, helping ensure that we and future generations have the opportunity to create our own personal experiences and memories!
