We have a full office! At times there are four of us working on various things simultaneously. This week (January 27th) Marlana was using Susan’s laptop. Lauren came in with her laptop, and Susan and Sarah Beth, our new intern from Rutgers, were working on the desktop. We sent out a press release to a slew of news agencies, posted to the New Brunswick Patch our newest fundraising event, signed up for a Twitter account (DinaVanB – in case you have Twitter), and started another grant application.
We are thrilled because:
- We’ve received several larger donations!!
- We’ve another online article through NJ.com’s reporter, Brian Amaral.
- We’ve been able to submit a long report and request to the National Advisory Council for Historic Preservation.
A fundraiser is planned for March 2nd at the George Street Ale House. The Ale House is offering us a special price per person, so that we can really keep the cost of tickets low. Also, the New Brunswick Jazz Project is providing a Jazz group to us at no cost. It will be a great time on a cold Sunday afternoon.
This is a big month (February) for us, because several grant applications are being reviewed and finalized. By the end of the month we hope to know about whether or not construction will begin in April/May 2014.
