Three-quarters of the way there!

Thanks to generous donors, we have now reached 75% of our fundraising goals for the Fieldale Iron Bridge Preservation Project!  More fundraising still needs to be done, as we will need $3,000 more to complete the project. It's not too late to purchase a plaque for yourself or a loved one to be placed on the bridge. Plaques start at just $100 and also include a memorial space on DRBA's website.

To purchase a plaque or for more information, contact DRBA at 276-634-2545 or jdoss@danriver.org. Here is a sample of some of the plaques and memorial spaces that have been purchased so far.
