Gearing Up For A New Build

This week our Partner Family celebrated one year of living in their new home.  Fortunately, we were able to finish the landscaping a couple days before snow took over the landscape!    (In the Spring some parging needs to be done and that is all.)  
Our committee has been meeting monthly to deal with loose ends from the first build and to begin creating the momentum for a second build in Vermilion.

This time we have an additional challenge.  Whereas our first build benefited from a Provincial grant of around $90 000, our second build will receive about $30 000.  This means that we have to raise $100 000.00

Our lot (across the back alley from Rona, next to the apartment block) is in the final stages of a title transfer. 

We need your assistance - as a volunteer, as a donor of $$ or gift-in-kind or items for silent auction - to get this build off the ground!!
