To all who donated to the Capital Campaign, thank you! Meyers House will be painted when the weather stabilizes. We are still gratefully accepting donations to help us catch up on deferred maintenance this spring. In addition to paint, repairs will be made to the pergola, and the pump house roof. We hope to have the Meyers House grounds ready as a venue for events by July 2013. Meyers House was recently featured in Alameda Magazine.
