"We Hear You America" Contest

Dec 30, 2011

Hello Everyone,
I would like to ask for your help in this project - it will cost you nothing except a few minutes of your time. Perhaps you have heard about the Reader's Digest contest,"We Hear You America." The winning town will receive $50,000! I've heard that Mayor Kris Hill would like to use the money from the "We Hear You America" Reader's Digest" contest to restore the building on Main St. Mayor Hill wrote: "I would like to see the money go to restore our building. We really need to get the building on the south end of Main St back in action. It has been sitting without heat for several years and if we don't renovate this building we run the risk of losing it. If you recall this has happened in other towns like Morrison where historic building are falling down due to neglect. If that building goes it takes with it the Pitney building (which is my next project). PHOTO: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/tvgs03jhECeKoNPdV8cky9MTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink

The Statue is also very important to several and I am working on other ways to support this project as well. I would be wonderful if we could all work together we could get so much done. Thanks Kris"
