40 acres

Jimmy Anderson, right, gives special certificate of thanks to Charlie and Lauri Klausner who recently donated 40 acres of land with a total value of $870,000 to the Country Church of Hartsel.

The Country Church of Hartsel dedicated land June 24 on approximately 40 acres that was generously donated by Charlie and Lauri Klausner, former owners of the Hartsel Springs Lodge and land.

“In the past there were minerals, water, fish and a lot of stuff sold on the ranch and nothing was given back to the community, so we wanted to change that by giving back,” Charlie Klausner said. “The land donated for the church was valued at 870,000 dollars.”
