December 17, 2014
Adairsville, GA (December 17, 2014) – Yanmar Agriculture Equipment is delighted to announce the recent donation of a Lx4500 tractor to Bald Eagle Boys Camp in central Pennsylvania. This organization was nominated to receive this donation by its local Yanmar dealer, Rovendale Ag and Barn.
Bald Eagle Boys Camp, located in Mill Hall, Pennsylvania, is a wilderness camp that provides troubled boys with a safe place to work through their problems and lead them to a behavioral, physical and emotional sense of wholeness. Nestled on 520 acres of beautifully wooded mountain land, the camp facilities consist of an office, dining hall, warehouse and staff housing. Campers and counselors live at secluded campsites in tent cabins that they build and maintain themselves.
Yanmar has long been committed to celebrating individuals and organizations alike who share the company’s passion for the land. In fact, the company’s mission statement reads, “We strive to provide sustainable solutions for needs which are essential to human life. We focus on the challenges our customers face in food production and harnessing power, thereby enriching people’s lives for all our tomorrows.” Keith Wainwright, Business Unit Manager for the Agriculture Equipment Division commented, “Bald Eagle Boys Camp is the perfect example of an organization using the land and resources around them to create a better world, and we are proud that we were able to donate a tractor, so that they can continue to change lives.”
A dedication ceremony for the new tractor in which a Yanmar representative will hand over the keys will be held at the camp on Friday, December 19, 2014.
