KNSA is pleased to welcome Jennifer Dayton to our board of directors. Jennifer has training and experience in economics as well as a history of community service. She joins other recent additions to our board: Denise Hawk, Toula Balestracci and Juliet Hodge. Our long time members Sue Latourette, Jeff Nelson, and Jennifer Welborn look forward to their enthusiasm and help in building affordable housing in North Stonington. We welcome other interested persons to apply for board membership or as a volunteer to help in this mission. Contact Mary Ann Ricker at email@example.com for information and an application.
Predevelopment work continues on our property on 26E Main Street. It has been surveyed and perked, moving us a step closer to our goal of building on that property. We are hoping to combine that work with the rehabilitation of our property on 119 Clarks Falls Road into a funding proposal to our State Dept. of Housing.
A thank you to all who attended, contributed and spent money purchasing items at our “Night out with KNSA” fundraiser held at Jonathan Edwards Winery on April 8. Our sponsors: Chelsea Groton Bank, Regina McGowan & family, the Colgan Family; and friends: Jim and Cinda Spavins and Jeff Raggon get our special thanks for their early support. Space donated by Jonathan Edwards for the event lent a festive air which contributed to the spirit and enthusiasm displayed by all who attended. Our goal was to raise $10,000 and with the incredible support of this community, we raised over $14,000! It was a great community event!!
