Groundbreaking Ceremony

Some of the crowd at the Groundbreaking ceremony

Our Groundbreaking ceremony yesterday was spectacular!  Over 100 of our supporters and partners were on hand to celebrate the fact that we now own the property at 83 Warwick Street and construction is about to get underway.

The theme for the event was “We are all pieces of the puzzle,” to reflect on how many individual efforts are needed in order to piece together this project.

Instead of holding the traditional golden shovel, honored guests assembled an oversized puzzle.  And everybody got a puzzle-themed pin (made from reclaimed trim and recycled paint, of course).

Here is a copy of the program that lists all of our supporters and partners.

Here’s our media release from the event.

We’ll post a photo album from the event soon.  In July, we’ll give you a look at the plans for the building from inside and out!
