OUR CULTURAL/EDUCATIONAL CENTER IS ON THE WAY.

We are happy to announce that we have been able to take some very positive steps towards the renovation of the carriage house into a cultural/education center. Thanks to the cooperation of the Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School we expect that their students will be making significant contributions on the building as the project progresses..

We have launched a capital campaign for the funds which includes grant solicitations from several foundations and other financial resources. Any donations towards this challenging effort will be received with appreciation.
