Financial update.

Things are looking good on the fundraising front, as we have received $35,000 in pledges and another $10,000 in anonymous challenge grants after our initial appeal. Our goal for next spring will be to raise another $25,000 in order to complete the third and final phase of the project in the summer or fall of 2011. If you haven't gotten around to pledging, there's still time! If you have already pledged, thank you so much.

Major donors ($1,000+) will receive a copy of the forthcoming book entitled "The Brick Church: Deciphering a window on Newport." Filled with interesting local history, the book tells the story of the 1823 meetinghouse, its unique architecture, and its role in the promotion of Newport as the seat of Sullivan County, formed in 1827. We are preserving much more than a building.
