Here’s an aerial photo of our new school buildings. So exciting!
The crowd was ALL smiles in the sunshine yesterday (April 7th, 2013) for the official groundbreaking ceremony for two new cottages at MCHF. After a few words from Gillian Willis and Drury Stith, Paster Alex Joyner gave a blessing and everyone in reach of a shovel got the project off to a good start.

Big THANKS to everyone who helped out with or attended our “Raising the Roof” event on Saturday. The food was delicious, the auction was inspired, and the band rocked! We’re looking forward to making this an annual event.
Special thanks to our hosts, Chatham Vineyards, and to ALL of the very generous LOCAL businesses who donated food, supplies, and time. Please make an effort to spend locally whenever possible and let these businesses know you appreciate their support!
