Now that we've held a few CE courses and you've had an opportunity to

use/visit our facilities at 525 Veterans Ave in RWC, let me take a moment

to answer the most frequently asked questions. #1 This is nice and has

everything we need – why not stay? One, it is not 'for sale' and two, it is

our intent to reinvest sale proceeds in a property we'll own that allows

us to create an ideal C E and resource home for members, leaders, and

staff more centrally located, not quite so far from our northern

members. #2 Why not stay on Twin Dolphin 'til we found a property to

buy? After our first purchase attempt fell through, it became apparent

this might take a while …the 240-A leaseback rate was astronomical, and

the Veterans property (at half the lease rate) fell in our laps. The lower

rent, cleaning out, and packing up gives us some breathing room,

literally and figuratively.
