Parking lot Update!

The much needed repairs to our parking lot have been completed!

Take a look at the video below, or better yet, stop by in person to see how great it looks!

Check out our fundraising thermometer below and check our our list of generous donors.

We are getting there! Thank you all!!


Parking Lot Progress

As you may have heard, the bill to have our parking lot repaired and resurfaced is $39,500. Through careful spending and hard work, the Board of Directors had managed to save $22,500 towards this much needed repair. We were on pace for a record setting year, then…
…enter COVID-19.

We went from a record setting year, to over $15,000 in lost revenue.

Thanks to our perseverance, hard work to schedule alternate safe events, and having been awarded a ‘Back to Work’ grant from Wayne County for which we applied. we are holding our own.

That still left $17,000 to come up with by March 2021 to pay off the parking lot bill.

Since our appeal letter went out, we have had $10,290 donated ($22,500 from our parking lot fund + $10,290 from our supporters= $32,790 total to date). We cannot thank our generous supporters enough!

Check back here often as we work towards our goal.

Thank you to everyone who has donated
