Fundraiser Announcement 10/28 + upcoming volunteer events!

Hello VSF community,

We've had wonderful turnouts the last few volunteer work days and are really making great progress.  At last month's gathering, Camilla and Alex got more of the Winnie the Pooh mural restored; more painting was done on the stairwell walls and basement hallway.  Greg and Clayton (of MSNHA) got an outdoor drain cleared (no small feat, many years of debris to get through!) that had been pushing water into the basement.  
We still have a long road ahead, but we feel so encouraged and inspired!  Thanks so much to everyone who has pitched in, donated, and/or spread the word!

Speaking of spreading the word…we made the news this week!  Read it here
