Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.

It has taken a year and a half to complete, but at last, the purchase of a new truck for Little Talbot Islands has been completed and the donation of a new truck to the Park finalized. In the fall of 2019, the Friends launched a fundraising campaign to enable us to purchase a 2020 RAM 1500 Classic for the Park.

A longtime member and supporter of Talbot Islands State Parks, Sara Flohr, challenged the Friends

to raise 50% of the purchase price which she would match.

Thanks to all of you who donated to this worthy effort, the Friends were able to meet the match and the funds to purchase the truck were available by the end of 2019. The order for the 2020 RAM truck went in to the manufacturer - we would get the new truck in early March 2020. Unfortunately, we all know what happened next - the manufacturer shutdown due to Covid-19 and it took another months long wait to get the truck delivered into the hands of park manager Michelle Waterman who is pictured above in the new truck.

We are grateful to all of our members, and to Sara Flohr for making this purchase possible! Thank you!
