Christian Encounter Ranch

The goodness of many people is boundless. Recently 68 bicyclists, 200 support personnel, and more than a thousand donors raised more than $105,000 to benefit the 16- to 25-year-old residents of Christian Encounter Ranch. Many thanks to all who were part of the 24-hour Agony Bike Ride. We are also grateful to the Nevada County Amateur Radio Operators; to John Hart, Gary Clelan and the sports staff at The Union; to photographer Kris Wakefield; and to our first corporate sponsor, L. Deane Wilson and Robin G. Wilson of The Blackwell Group, real estate valuation.
