I'm so excited!!! All the work I've done, and all the work I've made DH do is starting to pay off!
I've been applying for grants to help supplement donations, and I just got a letter from our telephone company they have given us a $500 grant!!! That will get us the materials to break ground and build the Book Nook, and will also allow us to buy a flag, flagpole, and lighting! Woohoo!!!!
Also, every year the fire station holds a 4th of July pancake breakfast, and lots of people attend who used to live in our city. One of the older gentlemen I had the pleasure of chatting with turned out to be the son of the man who originally built the Park. I received in the mail this morning a $500 check, with lovely note thanking me for continuing with his father's work. I'm so very humbled.
I never in a million years would've imagined I'd be doing something like this, and now I can't imagine having it any other way.
Everyone have a great day!!!
