Phase II Funding Complete! Inside Building to commence

Dear Friends,
The Seafarers' Center is coming along nicely. The outer shell is complete, and the security lighting will soon be connected.

Last week, the Board Of Directors moved to start the bid process on the inside "Seafarers' Section". This section includes the foyer, and most of the left hand side of the new Center. It includes the seafarers' recreation room, as well as a convenience store, communications room and library.

The day we agreed to go out for bids, we received a donation of $20,000 from a VERY GENEROUS friend of the Seafarers' Center. This amount will allow us to complete that section.

On Saturday of that same week, we received $25,000 from another very generous supporter. This amount will mean that we can begin work on the kitchen facility as well.

So, we have much to celebrate. But it's not complete yet, so please forward this blog to others who may wish to help!

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support!
