I´m very pleased to be typing this from our BRAND NEW OFFICE, full of sunlight, books, and the smell of fresh paint (maybe that´s what´s making me delirious...). Yes, it´s true. We have finally moved into our new community center! Volunteers stayed after lunch on Friday to help lug over boxes of books, tables, chairs, and the stove and refrigerator from the old school to our new location at 28 Avenida. This week we´re finishing up some work on the classrooms and by next week all the kiddos will be over here for Manos de Colores as well.
It´s been such a long time in the making and we couldn´t be more excited to see this dream become a reality. We celebrated this morning with some cake and coffee, and of course, one of the jefe´s excellent on-the-spot speeches. To everyone who volunteered, worked at our construction site, and donated funds, we want to say a big and teary THANK YOU for your ongoing support! We say it all the time but it´s true--we couldn´t have done it without your help.
Pictures coming soon...in the meantime, come on over and visit us!
