And here is another weekly pop - in case you havn't contributed yet. It would be great to get any support we can get from all the VCF members that visit us at Infoage, no matter the amount. Getting to the 10k goal this Month (March) would mean that InfoAge will be charged up and ready for all sorts of work and updates as the summer approaches.
Next year, 2022 will be the 10 year anniversary of the Designation of Camp Evans as a National Historical Landmark. This designation ensures that the Evans area will never be sold or changed for development and will remain an open space for all of us to enjoy.
But we all have to help to maintain it. You can support that work today by contributing to the GFM. Please do by giving whatever you can for this amazing space.
