Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As you may know, while we are wonderfully, tantalizingly close to the threshold of really securing protection for key pristine parts of the Amazon Creek Headwaters - initial feeder areas essential for our whole watershed - the Eugene City Council has delayed taking the final critical action to proceed with an eminent domain process to acquire the Green Valley Glen (Joe Green/East Fork Amazon headwaters Forest) and Deerbrook (Beverly/Amazon Headwaters Keystone) properties. We must remain vigilant and maintain our respectful public voice, calling for firm resolve to finally achieve protection, in the letters columns and with all our friends and neighbors.
Meanwhile, we are still carrying critical debt from the legal battles to stop developments on these parcels.
If you possibly can, please, please help with the urgent request penned below from Lisa Warnes. Checks of any size, tax deductible, should be sent right away directly to VIEW coordinator and FoE board member:
5020 Nectar Way
Eugene, OR 97405
Payable to "Friends of Eugene", with "VIEW" in the memo line.
Thanks so much.
Pulling together, we will save this nature.
> VIEW's debt is down from a staggering $32,000 to $5775, this amount is owed
> to our attorneys. View is completely tapped out and at the moment and we do
> not have any fundraisers on the horizon as I have been very busy trying to
> play catch up with my contracting business.
> We need to make a payment of at least $2000 to our attorney by July 25th so
> I am hoping that you fans of preserving the Amazon headwaters can rally up
> some financial support, hopefully for the last time. If everyone on VIEW's
> email list donated just $25 we would be free of debt, however I know that
> not everyone will or can donate. I myself will donate the first $100 toward
> our goal of $5775.
> Tax deductible donations payable to Friends of Eugene, mail to:
> Lisa Warnes
> at 5020 Nectar Way, Eugene, OR.
> or drop off at the box at my house.
> May the forest be with us,
