Library Project Update

Dear Friend and Supporter:

As you know, ADF held its annual fundraising dinner on October 6th. Even though the turnout was a little less impressive than in previous years, we were happy to see so many youngsters attend our event. As a result, we enjoyed a lively and joyful gathering.

The funds raised after expenses, $3,500.00 will go towards rehabilitating the house above into a place of learning/library for our kids. We are thankful to those of you who have already contributed to the library fund. We hope of lot more of you will do the same. As mentioned at the party, we have leased the house above for a 10 year period in order to start the library on a smaller scale. Our project for a bigger library had to be scaled back since the donors of the land on which the bigger library was to be built shamelessly broke their promise.

Since the house above was built for residential use, we will have to do some structural reinforcing as well as refinish the existing spaces with new lighting and new bathrooms. We plan also to convert the backyard into a reading space. We are in the process of preparing the plans and obtaining renovation costs and we will keep you updated of all new developments.
Thank you again for your support, and please don't forget the library.

Sincerely,
Jean-François Pericles
