"SAVE THE SLATE" SUCCESS!
Great news: We're excited to say we reached our primary goal of raising $30,000 to repair our office/garage roof...with construction to start this summer!
We offer our heartfelt thanks to ALL who contributed -- with special thanks to our campaign's major contributors: The Cortland Community Foundation ($5,000), the Wilkins Foundation ($3,000), and two individual donors who shall remain anonymous for the time being!
We still have a bit of fundraising to do in order to tackle the spot repairs on the Superintendent's House -- so, contributions to that portion of the project are still needed and welcome. But, to be sure, the heaviest 'lift' is done. We've selected our slate-specialist roofer. And, all of our "Save the Slate" supporters can look forward to seeing new copper on our office/garage just a few short months from now.
Once again... THANK YOU!!!
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN OUR "CEMETERY SWEEP OUT DAY" ON SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 2014!
We have over 50 people join us -- including groups from our generous sponsor the Crown City Rollerz and the JM Murray Center! -- in our effort to prep for the observance of Memorial Day (May 26) and the 2014 mowing season. Work we tackled included paint-scraping, raking, excavation for our water-stations, landscaping, tree planting, and trash pick up. In other words, it was awesome and highly productive!
