To all of our wonderful supporters:
Since I last wrote to you with the wonderful news that The Sarah Clayes House Trust* now
owns the Sarah and Peter Clayes House, we have made a great deal of progress toward setting up a fundraising and restoration plan for the property.
Below you can find more details about our recent work, and in that article you will see that
we are seeking local contractors, fencing companies, tree services, electricians, and property survey specialists who are willing to partner with us through pro bono work or significantly discounted fees.
Since this is an initiative that will benefit the entire local community, we hope to find community-minded companies who will help. Already the following organizations have advanced our efforts in this way, and we are most appreciative:
- A1 Tree Services, Framingham, MA
- Finch & Rose Preservation, Beverly, MA
- Kenneth Vona Construction, Waltham, MA
- Larry Crouse Architectural Design Group, Framingham, MA
- Meltzer Law Offices, Framingham, MA
- Taylor Rental, Framingham, MA
Please let us know if we should add anyone to this list; I hope I'm not missing anyone!
Of course, we are always looking for monetary donations.
The entire restoration project will most likely cost over $1 million, and EVERY gift counts Since we started fundraising many years ago, we have raised over $25,000 in a totally grass-roots way, from many of you who live all over the country. Thank you!!!
to make an on-line donation today!
We want to thank each and every one of our supporters during this amazing time!
