I first learned of Boulder Crest Retreat earlier this summer through a golf tournament hosted by the Knights of Columbus. Just off of Snickersville Turnpike in Bluemont, Boulder Crest was created to be a place for seriously wounded veterans and their families to reconnect during their recovery and rehabilitation.
Founded by Ken Falke and Fred Malek, the idea was born two years ago and came to fruition with a ribbon cutting ceremony this past Friday, September 6th. On hand to deliver the keynote speech was Admiral James A. Winnefeld, Jr., Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. For a detailed account of the day, check out Margaret Morton’s article for the Leesburg Today.
To date, over $7 million of the $10 million capital budget goal has been, including $2 million from Bethesda, MD based Clark Construction Group. To learn more about Boulder Crest Retreat or how you can help, visit their website here.
