After a few hurdles and delays we are finally going to have our grand opening on February 24, 2018! The road has not been easy but despite unforeseen construction delays and funding delays things are finally moving along. Hardship is life's greatest teacher and this is something we have learned over the last two months. Not being able to be in our building had forced us to think outside the box as to how we would engage with our members and how we would get funding to keep our doors open (before they even were open). We've gotten members out into the community to try new restaurants they may not have ever tried on their own, gone bowling a couple of times, played Uno, Mancala and Yahtzee in the food court of the mall, gone to a dinosaur exhibit and to the Leigh Yawkee Woodson Art Museum. We have done a lot of networking with local businesses and done events at local restaurants to drum up some additional funding and awareness which has been a blast! I can't wait to see what we can accomplish once we are in our building and running at full steam.
