BOARD MEMBERS OF TUNNEL RIDGE RANCH

Our criteria for asking people to come on the TRR Board was not what profession they held as those skills we could employ.
We needed likeminded people, who understood camping, had a strong faith in God and had been consistent in their walk with God through the good, the bad and the ugly. How BLESSED ARE WE, these faithful men & women have been hands on with us from the beginning, and they are still precious friends to this day!
