Alma, Mich., – Avalon and Tahoe Manufacturing recently announced their partnership with the Travis Mills Foundation, providing a 25-foot Avalon GS model pontoon boat that will be used at the Travis Mills Foundation Maine Chance Lodge & Retreat. Honda Marine provided the power for the pontoon, donating a Honda BF60 outboard motor.
“Avalon and Tahoe Manufacturing are privileged to be able to join with the Travis Mills Foundation by providing the 25-foot GS model for these deserving veterans,” said Jim Wolf, president and CEO, Avalon and Tahoe Manufacturing. “We are honored to be a part of this activity that helps with the reintegration of our heroic combat-injured veterans and their families.”
The Travis Mills Foundation supports combat-injured veterans and their families through long-term programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation.
The Travis Mills Foundation is creating a fully accessible retreat for combat-injured veterans and their families. The retreat, located in Rome, Maine, will be a uniquely designed, fully accessible comfortable lodge for relaxation, adaptive sports and family recreation.
The retreat will fill a vital role in the recovery, camaraderie, spousal support, reconnection, relaxation and reintegration of our military heroes – a true and lasting symbol of a grateful nation.
