Our 2019 Fundraising Goal: $75,000!

This year we have set our 2019 Fundraising Goal to $75,000. For this to succeed, the ORWM Committee needs your help. 

 

WE NEED YOU TO VOLUNTEER.


Our committee is looking for at least four more volunteers to help us in the following areas:

  • Public Relations/Marketing

  • Event Planning

  • Fundraising 

This is a $250,000 project and we need to get this built in time for the 250th Celebration of the United States of America. 

 

Our Patriot ancestors fought and supported the fight for their Freedom and the building of this new country. This will be a fitting Memorial to Honor them and a reminder to this and future generations of the History of the Revolutionary War and the struggles endured to make this a great country.

 

To volunteer some of your time on this worthy project, please contact Michael Tieman at info@ORWM.org.
