The RRGCC just made the third annual payment out of ten for the 700 acre Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve in Lee County, Kentucky. A significant portion of fundraising for the 2006 PMRP payment is due to the efforts of the www.redriverclimbing.com website community as spearheaded by Michelle Ellington. For her efforts Michelle was presented with the RRGCC Volunteer of the Year Award, Memorial Day weekend at the Red River Rendezvous.
In addition to internet fundraising efforts, a $2,500 Climbing Preservation Grant from the Access Fund helped us secure the PMRP for another year. The RRGCC would like to congratulate Michelle, and offer its deepest gratitude to her and the Access Fund, as well as all the volunteers who contributed time and money to our ongoing efforts in securing climbing on the PMRP.
