On January 9, 2018, Lumbermen Associates of Bristol, Pennsylvania, held its 20th annual Shed and Gazebo Builders Breakfast in Blue Ball, Pennsylvania. Lumbermen’s is a wholesale building
products distributor serving the outdoor storage building industry in Pennsylvania and surrounding states for over 30 years. At the breakfast, over 60 shed building companies were in attendance.

In this past year Amie Lapp, founder of Lapp’s Structures in New Holland, Pennsylvania, succumbed to his fight with cancer. Lapp’s life work was the Haiti Benefit Auction of Pennsylvania.
The Haiti Benefit Auction of Pennsylvania is an Anabaptist community organized charity gathering funds and implementing projects in Haiti to bring a better life to the people of Haiti.

Lapp organized auctions in four states to contribute aid to Haiti. At the breakfast, Lumbermen Associates donated $25 for each truckload of material sold to the charity in Lapp’s name.

“Amie has been a loyal customer and a personal friend of mine for over 27 years, and I wanted to do something to honor his memory,” says Dean Fry, salesman at Lumbermen Associates. “I could think of no better way than to contribute to the Haiti charity that was so important to him.”

Ken Martin, chairman of the board of directors for the Haiti Benefit Auction, was in attendance to give a brief outline of the projects the charity supports and accept the donation.
