The Firewheel Foundation wishes to thank everyone for their donations and generosity in our Silent Auction. We are heartened by the many monetary gifts we have received from the community. Still, our goal of saving the Firewheel continues.
In our first month we have added exciting entertainment events to our weekend lineup and more local groups are now having their meetings in The Firewheel. We have expanded our weekday hours, opening at 6 am and closing at 7 pm Monday to Friday. Group meetings continue to be scheduled for after hours. These accommodations and changes are going a long way to ensure we meet our monthly expenses, but we still have an outstanding payment due to the prior owners for the purchase of the business.
We have come a long way in a short time and overcoming this final hurdle is all that stands in the way of success. People have opened not only their pocketbooks but their hearts to the Firewheel Foundation. Remember, all the people working here are unpaid volunteers who have donated time and/or financial assistance because they believe so much in the idea of building community. They will carry on and with your continuing support so will the Firewheel.
Financial support to accomplish this dream is needed. What we build here will last beyond us and be representative of the strong community we wish to leave our friends and loved ones.
Thank You So Much,
The Firewheel Foundation
