Van Wells Building Supply

Last April, in 2018, Carl and Patty Van Wells sold Van Wells Building Supply to Gold Beach Lumber. Gold Beach Lumber has continued to be a strong supporter of the Dallas community, led by Ryan Ringer. Gold Beach Lumber carries a history that strongly resembles Van Wells Building Supplies.

Just 20 years ago, Gold Beach Lumber was the smallest lumber supply store in Curry County. Today, it is the only lumber supply store left in Gold Beach – with its only competition located 27 miles south, in Brookings. And, unlike the many supply stores in the county which have grown smaller and smaller over the years, Gold Beach Lumber has only grown larger.

Perhaps it’s the legacy of fathers and sons working together that have kept the business moving forward. Or perhaps it’s the focus on service and trust that the first owner – Clarence Ringer – insisted upon. Whatever the reason, though, Gold Beach Lumber has not only survived, but thrived.

With Ryan Ringer stepping into the position of Vice-President last fall in order to work alongside his father, Reed Ringer (President and owner), the legacy of Gold Beach Lumber now stands not just three – but four – generations strong.

Standing four generations strong, ‘Gold Beach Lumber’ and ‘Ringer’ have come to be recognized as one and the same. And if Ryan has anything to say about it – that legacy will last a while longer. We look forward to Van Wells Building Supply to continue to be a strong cornerstone in our community.

Tomas Patton – Your Local Allstate Agent

Claim service so good, it’s guaranteed. No other insurance company makes the same promise. If you’re not happy with your auto claim, the Allstate Claim Satisfaction Guarantee means you’ll get your money back—no questions asked. And, it’s included for free with standard Allstate policies.

How does it work? If you’re thinking about taking advantage of the guarantee, there are a few things you should know. You must be an Allstate customer who has had a car accident after the date Claim Satisfaction Guarantee became available. Allstate must have made a payment on your claim, but you are not happy with the experience. At that point send a letter within 180 days of the accident detailing your complaint. Allstate will then give you a six-month credit on your car insurance premium for the car involved in the claim.

Allstate offers this guarantee because customer service and satisfaction is key to them. Tomas Patton embodies this company value right here in Dallas.

Innovate Dallas – Partnering Schools and Community for Growth

The best way to ensure our kids are the leaders of tomorrow is to allow them to be leaders today!

Innovate Dallas is about bringing our schools, community, and businesses together to instill the skills and mindsets of innovation that are needed to drive economic growth in our region.

Innovate Dallas has received a matching grant from Oregon Community Foundation to assist in connecting Dallas students to real community centered problems to both enhance deeper learning and to develop leadership capacity.

To prepare the next generation of leaders able to solve our most pressing problems, the Construct Foundation builds and facilitates design challenges known as Breaker Challenges that introduce young people to a prototype-driven method for innovation.  For an example of a Breaker Challenge see this link The Future of Food.

In every challenge, we teach the tools of design and entrepreneurship and task young people with building solutions to a real problem.

THE PROBLEM
Residents at the Dallas Retirement Village are divided into 3 groups based on the level of care that they require, Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Health Services. As residents move through the levels of care they become increasingly isolated from their preferred lifestyle, activities, and circle of friends.

In this Wellness and Aging design challenge we ask a team of students to identify, design, and test new and novel ways to increase joy and connectedness for the residents of the Dallas Retirement Village Community.

Our kids are assets in our community and this Breaker Challenge is our first of many examples to prove this. Our business community’s support in this activity points toward believing in the future of Dallas as a vibrant community that values innovation for growth in schools, business and sense of community as a whole.

Please help us reach our goal of $6,000 to develop this innovative model of learning.
