Note with your donation that you want your donation to be used for the restoration of the Thomas Sleight Cabin and Park
Friends United for Bear Lake has made arrangements with Amazon to give the Thomas Sleight Cabin project 5% of your total purchases made through Amazon during the month of February or until the $14,000 needed for the restoration is reached. After the goal is met the 5% will go towards other preservation projects in the Bear Lake Valley.
This will not cost you nothing but you must use the following link each time you purchase from Amazon:
Oil Painting by Debbie Wood a great granddaughter of Thomas Sleight.
Prints will be available soon. If you would like to purchase a print include your email with your donation or email firstname.lastname@example.org so information on how you can purchase a print can be shared with you. Money made from the purchases of the prints will go to the Thomas Sleight Park Projects.
Please pass this information on. The project is for all families that had ancestors that settled the Bear Lake Valley from 1864 to 1965
