A SINCERE THANK YOU to all who invested in the Rachel Carson Homestead throughout 2016. We received some special donations, both monetary and in-kind, and will share more about those soon.
We are grateful to everyone who helped, especially those who participated in our raffle for the week at Rachel Carson’s Maine cottage. Congratulations to the winner, Raina Rippel of McMurray, PA
First reply from the winner: WOW!
Follow-up: I just wanted to expand upon my earlier email–this is an immense honor, and beyond words, I feel so blessed to follow in her footsteps. As someone who tries every day to carry on her legacy, this raffle win means SO MUCH to me. I just read Bob Musil’s description of staying at the cottage. I’d like to write a similar testimonial for your website. Let me know if I can do or say anything else to promote your good work. And thank you!!!
From RCHA: So much encouragement and grace came in with the ticket sales. We only regret we couldn’t have more winners! We are truly thrilled for Raina!
