My John Deere

I Love people and I Love making a difference in people's lives. 

I have been volunteering my time, my equipment, and services to maintain Three Saints Park in Bethany for over 20 years now and have never done anything like this before. 

20 years ago I emptied all my savings account, borrowed money, and invested 22k it all into the equipment, like my wonderful John Deere Tractor, in order to keep the Park open to the public - for Weddings and Family gatherings of all types.   

With over 20 years of service, it is time for me to say goodbye to my old friend and begin a search for another gem such as her.   She cost me over 20 thousand but has made up for it by, not only cutting over 15 acres of grass, but by creating paths with her snowblower during the blizzard, cleaned the pavilion floors with her brooms, and even helped me clean the pond of algae.  

She has been limping along ever since the tornado hit us a couple of years ago - and sadly after doing everything I possibly could to fix her - she will not be doing any more work here at the Park. 

I am preparing to, once again, empty my saving but find I will not have enough to replace her -for a New one today cost over 15 Thousand.   

I Love people and now, of all times, when the Park has become a solution to Social Gathering I can not take care of the property without her - So I am a scramble searching the market for a new one within the next 3 weeks.   

The Park is a very special place, a non-profit organization, that is used for things like; Family reunions, Weddings, Anniversaries, and this year's even memorial services for many who have lost the battle with Covid-19.

I will be forever grateful for any contributions you might be able to muster as well as all the families who will be using the Park this year for their celebrations - of life.

Thank you in advance.
