Look how far we have come!! It hasn’t been an easy road, but as they say, anything worth doing, is worth doing right. But we figured it was time for a progress report.
So……Since our last post about the building we have finished the sub floor,
removed and replaced an entire wall,
We have set completion dates and re-evaluated them based on the scope of work to be done, availability of contractors, supplies and the odd unforseen delays, but we have never lost momentum or commitment from our dedicated board or contractors.
We had a very successful back yard BBQ to help raise funds for the renovation and I have to say how proud I am of our little community. So much support from the poeple of MOW in either food donations, monetary donations or just offering help. It is very obvious that our community is ready to welcome the “new” museum and coffee shop to the island.
But all of this comes at a price, and we are running low on funds. So we would like to encourage you to be a part of this community project by making a donation . We have our U.S. Tax deductible exemption, or 501.(c).3 status and you can click here if you want to see that, our Bahamian non-profit certificate, and we have also been put on the register for historical buildings in the Bahamas. So if ever there was a question of legitimacy of long term investment, then this should help ease those thoughts.
We know the Man-O-War Heritage Center will be a welcome addition to the community and hope you will share in our excitement. So stop by and see our progress. You are always welcome!
