1. Donations of any size are welcome! Monies accumulated in the fund will be used to underwrite pads and benches.


2. Donate a Longevity Bench “Package” which includes the property location, the pad and the bench (includes two lines of text on the commemorative plaque, optional)


3. Donate the property where a pad and bench will be located (includes one line of text on the commemorative plaque, optional)


4. Donate a pad and bench to be located on a property donated by others (includes one line of text on the commemorative plaque, optional)

Here's how:

1. The Longevity Bench Project will meet with property donors to have their location confirmed and measured by pad sponsor, Jeffreys Creek Land Contractors.

2. The location will then receive confirmation from the town’s Department of Public Works (DPW).

3. The personalized commemorative plaque wording will be confirmed by the property, pad and bench donors.

4. The bench sponsor, Keystone Ridge Designs, will begin production of the bench (allowing 8-12 weeks lead time).

5. The pad will be installed on the property donor’s site.

6. The bench with commemorative plaque will be delivered and installed by Jeffreys Creek on the prepared pad.

7. The Longevity Bench Project will celebrate with donors and add the new bench location to the website map.
