From the Archive: The Community House Project moves forward - but in a new location.
(January 1999 Post)
In the past half year the Preservation Association has made remarkable strides in their project to bring a Community House to Beaver Island. Disappointed but not depressed over the possibility of having to find a new site because of the parking problem, Marilyn Clark and the Board continue to make progress. Recent donations totalling $57,950 have brought them nearly to the half-way point in qualifying for an offered "matching challenge grant" of $150,000.
They have come a long way in determing what they want and establishing credibility for being able to achieve it. This is no longer an impossible dream; we can now reasonably anticipate our lives being enriched from their hard work.
