It has been a busy couple weeks at the Active Heroes Retreat. We had a lot of events going on as the weather has cooled down. Its been beautiful at the retreat as the fall rolls in Kentucky.
Some big events at the retreat center happened in September with Chive Charities. Volunteers from Chive Charities drove from as far as 10 hours away to volunteer at the Active Heroes Retreat. They were great to work with and accomplished many objectives. The volunteers worked on multiple projects to include our animal care facilities, maintenance area, and petting zoo area. They were able to accomplish and complete the prep work for all of those projects. Volunteer Aaron Richter even said “It looks like almost a complete different place after we finished cleaning up the area around the buildings.” Their help is instrumental for us to be able to complete multiple projects as winter quickly approaches.
We also held our first annual Active Heroes Bass Fishing Tournament at Rough River Lake in Kentucky to help raise money for the excavation of the pond at the Active Heroes Retreat. Congrats to the winners of the tournament John P. Davis and Roger Dunaway. We had many sponsors and donors that made the event possible. We would like to thank our sponsors’ The Rod Glove, SPRO, Rapala, James Watson Professional Angler, KastKing, Marine Carpeting.com, Academy Sports, Card Payment Solutions, Sher-Fab, Lilly Ram, and Jamestown distributors. We would also like to thank Wayne Mosely and the Zoneton KY Fire Department for their assistance getting up and running with this event.
As always we are looking for volunteers at the retreat. We will be trying to complete multiple projects as we prepare for the arrival of winter. Please sign up at http://www.signupgenius.
