    This is quite inspirational! It might be helpful if dates were put to these film clips so that we can track the progress from the time of conception to the time of ribbon cutting ceremonies and beyond? Will there be updates added as these projects come into fruition? Also, might I suggest that you provide information for where people can donate their services and funding to help these renovations to happen? As an artist I am very interested in this project, and would like to perhaps be a part of it as well.
