Progress Coming Along at our new The Welcome Table Community Center

Just a quick update: We have begun to have a few community meetings and gatherings inside the new building we purchased. The 12 step recovery group is meeting here on Saturdays at 7:30 pm, and we held a grant meeting for our community garden park being built at 6005 N. Johnstown Ave., and office space we rent for my office with the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship is taking shape, and worship is being held on Sunday mornings at 11 am followed by a common meal.

Also we had part of our Building the Future Vision Retreat here in the building on Sunday afternoon and then completed the rest of the plans by meeting in space at the Turley United Methodist Church; thanks to Rev. Estell Ray and the church. We will soon post here all the plans that were made for the new building and grounds.

We have internet and phone service just in this past weekend, delayed as much of our move in was delayed, by the Great Blizzard and Great Freeze. Next steps are to see if the computer center can be powered up without needing to add additional electric work as we had to do already. We also need to set up the Food Pantry shelves and get it restocked. And we need to begin the first phase in of major needed plumbing. Plus a whole lot of little things. But it is getting transformed both inside and outside. Stay tuned for news on when and how we will be able to gradually relaunch even in this first phase. And the more support the sooner it is all done. Please contribute safely and often through the paypal button on this page; you don't have to have a paypal account to use it. Thanks and more soon.

PS. Stay tuned for a list of volunteer work days, and a list of our needs. And more will be coming soon about our Community Art Day on March 25.
