January 14, 2019 - At the beginning of January, we reported that we overshot our projected fundraising goal of $40,000 for the restoration of the road to the hilltop by just over $8,000. That was and is amazing! We are so thankful!
Last week, we learned that we had significantly underestimated the amount of our final bill. While it feels embarrassing to share our mistake with you, we felt like we owed it to you since so many of you have been walking this path with us since September, praying for us and giving generously to the project. The revised total for project comes in at $57,000.
The only thing that has changed is that the finish line moved! To date, we have received over $48,000 in donations. Less than $9,000 left to go.
Paving of the project was completed before Christmas!!
December 12 - Rain and cold weather have delayed the paving of the road. The hilltop area is now accessible and we will begin using it for guest groups. Landscape work will continue.
November 30 - Landscape rocks are in place and we are ready for paving if things stay dry.
November 21 - The focus of the work this week has been in repairing the damage done to the dam by Hurricane Florence.
November 9 - It's been a productive week! While not yet paved, the road is now accessible. There is still work to be done to repair some damage up around the dam area caused by Florence.
November 5 - The pipe in the road was set today. See photo!
November 1 - We were so pleased to see the heavy equipment arrive at the site this week! The work to repair the road to the hilltop has begun!
