Welcome to our new website! Hopefully you find it more “user friendly”.
We are Dan & Lois Topolski, both retired teachers from East Rochester, NY. We have been working over 6 years to prepare Dan’s family homestead in Cameron County, Pennsylvania for use in a meaningful way. After meeting with Loraine Williams from St Mary’s, Pennsylvania, a recently returning veteran from Afghanistan who served 4 missions in Special Forces, her story so inspired us, we decided to use our home as a mountain retreat for women veterans and their families, especially those recently returning from war service. We are focusing on women, but men and their families who are returning from service or fought in Vietnam or other wars are also welcome to apply for our program. There is no charge to these veterans and their families.
