"As you probably know, 2015 is NOLS’ 50th Anniversary!
A small group of early grads thought that this would be a great time to immortalize Paul. We approached NOLS and they have agreed to allow us to raise the funds and to place a life size, bronze statue of Paul in the courtyard of the NOLS headquarters.
We need to raise $85,000 to pay for the artwork, the statue, and installation. We’ve already raised $5500 of the $85,000 required.
We’re writing to ask you to help us do two things: to make a donation to the Paul Petzoldt Memorial and to help us identify others who might join us in this effort to celebrate Paul’s life and achievements.
We want to have the statue unveiled at NOLS 50th Anniversary Celebration on October 8th, 2015, so time is very short. To help reach the goal quickly, we have 60 autographed copies of “Teton Tales” to give to the first 60 donors of $1000 or more --- and 56 copies remain! Donors of $10,000 or more will be given a 12” Bronze maquette of the statue.
All donations are tax deductible. Donations of any amount are appreciated
Donations should be made to the Paul Petzoldt Memorial Statue at NOLS. Donations can be made by mail or online. Be sure and designate the money is to go to the Paul Petzoldt Memorial Statue fund. These are tax-deductible donations to NOLS so there will be no refunds; any funds not used for the statue will be used for NOLS scholarships.
Please make your donation as soon as possible … we will need to make a series of payments for the artwork and manufacture of the Bronze Statue.
We are excited about this project and hope you are too.
It’s time Paul was visibly recognized in Lander.
We’ve included our email addresses below if you have any questions or want to contact any of us for any reason.
The 50th Anniversary Celebration is October 8, 9 &10, 2015, we hope to see many of you there.
Look forward to hearing from some of you."
