Thanks to the generous donors who responded to our Spring Challenge, we have received $6,085 to install energy-efficient LED lights throughout the gallery, and replace the broken black top entrance to our driveway.  Thank you!

Two high-impact projects down, one to go.  Please join those who have already donated and - DONATE NOW!

We're so close to being able to complete the last project.  Your gift toward the $6,200 needed for roof improvements will protect our art gallery from water damage.

Please contribute whatever you can.

With sincere thanks,

Jack Montmeat
