Waste Water Facilities Campaign

Old Outhouse beside Oak House Old Outhouse beside Oak House Doug Bates

OLT's campaign for Valley View's Waste Water Treatment Plant upgrades is well underway and is now nearly 15% complete. Our fundraising dinner was attended by nearly 200 people and raised over $15,000 in donations/ pledges and proceeds from guest speaker John Fielder’s generous donation of 30 % of book sales for the evening. Combined with donations from the December Annual Appeal mailing seeking funds for the WWTP upgrades, we have raised almost $27,000 to date for this campaign, or 15% of the goal. THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO ATTENDED THIS FIRST-EVER FRONT RANGE EVENT FOR OLT and those who made a pledge/ donation for this important project whether present or not.

The dinner event at the Doubletree Hilton in Westminster on April 3 rd was a successful community building evening for OLT members and friends, expanding the usual recreational context in which OLT supporters normally engage with OLT at its home in the San Luis Valley . Speaker John Fielder provided a stunning slideshow and presentation featuring his nationally recognized nature photography and conservation work around the state and in the San Luis Valley in particular. OLT is grateful for the donation of his time, speaker fees and expertise on behalf of OLT.

We're working hard to reach every supporter to help us reach our goal of $180,000 for this important project. If you haven’t made a donation (or want to make another one!), you can use the form below to mail in with your gift, or visit our website to make a donation on-line. Together, we'll be providing upgraded facilities for life’s “ basic necessities” at Valley View while also contributing to OLT’s future financial health by reducing the encumbrance of large loans to pay for these renovations while funds are being raised for the WWTF .
