Thought I'd let you all know that John and I (Summer) sat down today and put our heads together while looking at a calendar and think we've determined a realistic goal for opening in the new space...it's not Memorial Day anymore (the wait time for the permits combined with a couple planned vacations) has led us to set the target Grand Opening Date at Saturday, June 26th. Our hope is to do a big reception on the evening of Friday, June 25th in the space which will include a silent auction of donated art pieces to raise money to complete the buildout of the meeting rooms at the back of the space. We hope you'll mark your calendars and plan to be around that weekend to celebrate with us!
On other fronts, we are still waiting to hear about permits from the city but John is at home diligently building all of the counters in pieces so they're ready to bring in as soon as we're allowed. He thinks that once we have the go ahead to start work again that we can be done with the buildout in 3 weeks. So stay tuned for word. We'll send out a newsletter and update the blog as soon as we need volunteers again!
