Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:

Pete and Sheila moved to Arlington, Oregon and have proved to be incredible assets to their new hometown and community. They are kind, responsive and always willing to help out wherever they can. When recently the community needed a hand with some heavy equipment Pete jumped in to help with confidence and pride. Sheila was there to answer the call of distress and assure the group that Pete would work hard to find them a solution.

They recently rescued a dog that was found out on a nearby highway, this dog has required extensive vet care and because of this families huge heart this canine now has a new home and a family that loves him.

Pete and Sheila are wonderful examples of Rural Community Builders. It’s an honor to know and work with them.
