Less than a 13 months ago I was woman preparing a brief talk to the Woodhull Board of Trustees about a potential business, a dream that I had.
Today I am a woman watching a building going up. In a few months (short months) there will be a business where there hasn’t. For about the last 30 years. And it will be relevant to the community.
The Roof is Going Up, Folks, can you believe it?
And ready for this…..?
We have secured financing for the rest of the building. It’s a go. IT’S A GO!!
Sorry that I’ve been so quiet with the updates. Honestly, I haven’t known what to say. We’ve been working with a local-ish bank who has been fantastic and amazing, and. It’s taken a long time. Because sometimes it takes a long time. Except in the grand scheme of things I guess it hasn’t been that long. It just feels like it’s been a long time.
Except now it won’t be.
Now we have to really get to work – because we have a store to open. (if only you could hear my actual voice – oh. wait. maybe it’s better that you cannot. Because I’m crazy excited. – Did I mention we secured financing and the store is going to open? )
The official Grand Opening (baring any major disasters) will be in July for Woodhull’s 2nd annual Fun Fest. We’re going to have a quieter opening a month or so before that.
So if you live in Woodhull – and you notice that building that just seems to keep getting built… Yeah, that’s right – because it’s going to actually happen. And if you live within 100 miles of Woodhull and want to sell your produce and produced food at my store – let me know. And if you are one of the folks who live no where near Woodhull, but have been fascinated by this whole journey – thank you.
You guys. It’s really going to happen.
