In which we get $$ from the city of Belfast!

Greg's great grant proposal netted us an amount not to exceed $15,000 from the city of Belfast through their Community Development Block Grant Building Facade program.  We identified several areas on the exterior of the building that were in need of renovation (new windows, doors, siding, roof, trim, etc. and Greg wrote a compelling grant proposal that was accepted by the town.  It is a one to one matching grant, so I think it should just about cover the cost and install of the 39 windows we just ordered for the building.  It could go to the cost of putting back the porch, or for the siding, know, since ALL of the building needs renovation, pretty much any project you might consider.  

Anyway, a hearty thank you to the city of Belfast, Maine for helping us out!
