Grant Awarded to Soldiers Delight!

grantcertificate0301-26-22.jpgThe board of directors of Soldiers Delight Conservation, Inc. is extremely pleased to announce that our nonprofit was awarded a grant today from Conquest Graphics in Richmond, Virginia. The grant is in the form of $1,000.00 worth of printing services free from Conquest.

Conquest Graphics, one of the largest and oldest privately-held printing companies in the nation and a fourth-generation family business, has served all our printing needs since 2018. We have found them to be personable, responsive and easy to do business with. They do high-quality work at a reasonable price, which is so critical to a small, all-volunteer operation like ours that runs solely on donations from the public (and the occasional grant).

SDCI was awarded the grant based on the number of votes our nonprofit received in a contest held by Conquest Graphics throughout the course of 2021. This grant comes at a good time for SDCI, as we are in need of new brochures and other printed material.

We appreciate the folks at Conquest Graphics for making this competition available and we especially appreciate all the people who voted for us!

Changes to our website

We are in the process of making some changes to our site. You may have already noticed some changes to our main menu.

A significant part of the upgrade will involve the creation of new areas of content so we can provide more information about the unique ecosystem that is Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area. Most of these areas are present but not yet complete. Other changes involve fixes to a few things that are broken and a slight reorganization of site in general.

If you find anything about the site that you think needs attention, don't be shy - tell us about it. Meanwhile, thanks for your patience.
