Walls are appearing!


Friends,

If you go down to the New Building Site today, you can see the walls of the rooms really taking shape. I confess that when the foundation was poured I thought....it's so small...what happened to our large center?? Well...now that rooms are being clearly defined, I can see the stature of the building...it is most impressive!

Yes, our luncheon ladies will be happy to know...we walked in the new kitchen area...and ladies...it's a decent sized kitchen! (YAY!) In fact, the picture to your right shows Fr. Sinclair standing in the kitchen with a big smile. He's happy that our ladies will soon have a decent place to cook!

And the Conference room! Just check out the picture of Fr. Sinclair and Earline standing in the room above and to the left. They look like the "to scale" people on maps! See below for more photos and come see us Friday, Aug 11 at 10:00 a.m. We'll have a press conference to kick off the Phase II fundraising.

    How exciting to see the Center going up in Port Athur!

    Reminds me of a Bible verse I learned years ago — Proverbs 13:12 — "Hope deferred (or put off) maketh the heart sick,but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life."

    Now, community members and old-line Port Arthurians need to kick in the $250,000 still needed to furnish it properly and reclaim the old terminal so vital to Port Arthur's history and fame.
