In February we set about fulfilling a promise we made in November 2018 to "liven up" the Coyote Twin lobby. Many of you generously donated to our Giving Tuesday campaign launched on the hope that we could raise enough to repaint the walls and clean the carpet.

Instead, you contributed enough to allow us to install a (totally coincidental!) private donation of new commercial-grade carpet in the lobby. The new carpet also extends down the hallway and into our Side 2 auditorium. Our walls also received that new coat of paint—a soft gray that did indeed liven up the space as soon as we rolled on the first coat.

We're so excited to bring a whole new look to the space we share with you and we hope you love it too. We are deeply grateful to James Duda of Diverse Floorings for his excellent work and Building Maintenance Co. for their assistance with carpet removal.

Our lobby-livening efforts took another surprise turn thanks to a contribution specifically to fix up the lobby restrooms. We now have fresh vinyl flooring, updated sink vanities and mirrors, and new toilets.

Nonprofits always need good friends, and in you we have some of the best. Thank you, Verm.
