MANY THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS FOR 2012
Medal of Honor - $1000
Distinguished Service - $500
Silver Star - $250
Bronze Star - $100
Thanks to everyone who helped make the race a success.
We hope to pay off the loan we took out for the purchase of the lot on Hill Avenue.
It is in the process of being donated to the National Cemetery.
Photos of the race may be viewed HERE.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all involved in the race - runners, sponsors and volunteers.
We raised enough money to repay the money we borrowed to buy our last land purchase.
The paper work has been submitted to the VA in Washington, DC
to donate the lots we currently own to the National Cemetery.
THE HOUSE IS READY TO MOVE
Here is a picture of the Brantley house being moved. It's currently sitting on the trailer, on Lot #20 A.
They'll try to get it moved early Sunday morning, September 16, 2012 if all the permits, etc. are completed.
If not, it'll be the following Sunday morning.
The cleanup & leveling will be done soon.
- Ron Butler, RNCIC President (9/13/12)
CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION
The RNCIC received this certificate in August from the Fayetteville National Cemetery.
Many thanks to our supporters who have made land acquisition possible
to enlarge the cemetery and keep it open for burials.
HOUSE FOR SALE - MUST BE MOVED
Lot 20, at 1098 S. Hill Avenue in Fayetteville, Arkansas,
which the RNCIC just bought, has a small 840 sq. ft. house on it.
The house must be moved or razed before we can donate the land
to the Fayetteville National Cemetery.
It would make a dandy cabin in the woods or at the lake.
Contact Ron Butler at 479-750-2598 or email@example.com for more info.
The house has been sold to the House Movers for a fee of $1.00 and the cleanup of the area to meet VA requirements.
The move of the house may take place this weekend or next;
the plan is to get it moved away from the foundation
so they can accomplish the cleanup, then at a later time, move the house to it's new location.
-Ron Butler, RNCIC President
