Moving On Up

OK. So we've finally begun work on our new space. The contract with the contractor, Hodge Construction, was signed and demolition was begun on May 9. Right now we're working with the construction team to make sure we've got all the right things in place. Discovered a large duct coming up through the middle of a hallway at last week's meeting. The contractor's going to talk to the mechanical engineers to see what we can do about it.

In the meantime, we're happy to report that we're well on our way to raising the $250,000 need for the move. At last count, we were 89% of the way there. Thanks to major donors Bill & Agnes Kwan, Kam Au, David & Daphne Tang, Hueiling & Rayton Chan, Sinclair & Genevieve Yee, and the Yang Family in memory of their parents, Robert and Yanlang Yang.

Looking forward to the Friendship Dinner & Auction on Saturday, this year at the Grand Hyatt. We need to raise money for ongoing programs including Afterschool Youth Development. Hope to see you there!
