Well, Christmas came early to St. Francis. As you can see by the picture on the left, Kim Henderson and Sue Rutz confirmed the lease with A Place Like Home Daycare on Wednesday, November 28. Cathy Ostuw and I were present as well. We celebrated with sparkling cider (thanks, Cathy!)! Of course, there is a great deal of work that remains. We need to get clearance from the state that the asbestos is abated. We need to put in flooring. We need to figure out plumbing for sinks for the various rooms. And we will need to eventually install air conditioning into the building. Along with this, our tenant will be working hard painting and moving everything into the space to begin her program at 2810 as soon as possible. Thank yous are in line for Kim, Sue, Cathy, and Patricia Lydon, Annette Herber, Joe Mygatt, and the former wardens of Lillian Kraemer, Betsy Adams, Brian Snover, Jim Quinn, Nancy Geary, Frank Baker, Alice Smith, and Carol Rice for ALL the work that was done in seeking a tenant, planning for contingencies, and securing our ultimate tenant. It goes without saying that “thank you” also seems so inadequate for all the work that was done. We are blessed by you all. THANK YOU!
