Ladies and Gentlemen, The Campaign for The Heavens and The Earth has reached the $550,000 goal!
Recent support from Against the Grain Gourmet, Trust Company of Vermont, and the Cherry Street community - who got together to buy a chair (great idea!) - gave the final push that landed us over the top. Enormous thanks!
What a marvelous accomplishment for our small town, with most of the funding coming from right here at home. And of course, we had help from great friends around the corner in Boston (Thomas Thompson Trust), up the road in Montpelier (State of Vermont, Vermont Arts Council and Vermont Cultural Facilities Coalition), through the woods in Grafton (Windham Foundation)...and a little spur to the south, USDA out of Washington, DC.
This is what we did!
A far cry from this, eh?
Still to come: the starry sky. This historic re-creation will hark back to the days when light bulbs above the ceiling shone through pinholes to mimic the night sky. It's still a work in progress -- I'll let you know when it's ready!
Meanwhile, congratulations to all on this mighty renovation. Come to a movie or Live a the Latchis event to see it for yourself.
