Happy Mother's Day!
 
Freedom comes with a price - let’s not forget to say Thank You to all our Veterans and their families on Memorial Day. We owe them our utmost respect and gratitude for all the sacrifices they made so that we can live in a free country. We also need to remember and say Thank You to all the service men and women that are currently serving throughout the world and hope that they will be home soon.

2013 Building Project Annual Appeal
and Pathway to Success  - donations continue to come in. We want all our donors to know how grateful we are for all the donations we have received thus far. Please continue to spread the word we need all your support to meet our goal.
 
We are in the final planning phase for the new building.  Thank you everyone who has contributed so far.  We still need to close a small gap in the funding needed to start breaking ground. So it is time to buy those bricks if you haven’t already, we are in final negotiations with the responsive bidders and the county and will soon announce the results.  Keyport has waived fees on the building permit and we thank the Mayor, town Council, Business administrator and the planning board for their support.  We are almost there.
How You can Help This section on our website will provide you with information on how we can use your assistance.  No donation is ever too small.  Thank you in advance for any donation you might consider.
