FOUNDERS

Over a quarter of a century ago, three people, related by blood, love, and consonant ideals, joined together to "save the good stuff," a serendipitous gesture that still resonates at the Orchard at Altapass today.
Please take a moment to read a few words written for Judy Carson and to the founders. The poem was recited and thoughts added during the celebration of her life on May 7, 2021.
THE ORCHARD TEAM

The Orchard at Altapass Foundation is fortunate to have so many dedicated people who have come together in support of our mission. Without them, the Orchard at Altapass couldn't exist as a vibrant, active, and above all, FUN destination.

Volunteers

Continued thanks to the the Toe River Model Railroaders, Jerry Leaders, Warren Harding, Caleb Taylor, and Pooky plus two additional volunteers who just dropped by and stayed to help. They are "on stage" in the red barn all day, every Wednesday.

We would also extend a hand of gratitude to Ann Kernaham for her well-loved and cared for train set which will take up residence with the model Clinchfield Railroad Project.






And to Robert and Patti Lance a huge thank you for their generous donation of a Kawasaki ATV, already a well-used fixture along the Orchard trails.
And a shout out to former board member and new volunteer, Elaine Percival; Lori Weaver; and computer guru, Alan Womack.
