What is Chesnut Ridge?

Chesnut Ridge is property that will be a combination retreat facility and counseling center. The vision for this facility is to offer a safe haven for a veteran to visit or call any day of the week. Potentially, it would offer overnight accommodations, a variety of activities (indoor and outdoor), and counseling, as required.

In July 2021, Pete Chesnut, a local veteran donated his land on Bass Mountain to ALCOVETS to build a Veterans retreat campus, On Oct 9, 2021 ALCOVETS held a groundbreaking ceremony, in 2022 ALCVOETS received a $50,000 grant from the state of NC to be used for improvements to Chesnut Ridge, in July the land was cleared and graded, in September 2022 the well was drilled, in July 2023 an Eagle Scout Picnic Shelter was built, a wellhouse structure was constructed and a flag pole was installed.  Currently, ALCOVETS is working on road improvements and raising additional funds to build a chapel/rec building and additional structures on the campus. 


We greatly appreciate you considering donating to this worthy cause. In addition to a general donation, we also have naming opportunities available.
