A fresh start?

After many months simmering on the back burner, a bequest has provided an opportunity to launch the fundraising effort needed to move this project ahead. And just in time. The mandatory grant-writing workshop for the next round of LCHIP applications will be held on September 10 in Concord. We'll be there, as we hope to leverage this donation through a grant award and additional contributions. The fundraising climate is still quite poor, of course, but the scope of this project is modest and reasonable.

There was a nice article on the Eagle Block in the latest issue of "Kearsarge Magazine" but no mention of James Breck or any connection with South Church down the street. Still, we hope it keeps Newport's historic preservation efforts on the radar.
