So, it has been a busy month at LCC, especially on the foundation front! Many thanks to our growing list of donors, including our two newest gifts from the R. K. Mellon Foundation and the H.J. Heinz Company! We're so appreciative of the support. And we're thankful to Gretchen Hansen, of the Hansen Family Foundation; Andrea Mitchell and James Mesloh from The Dominion Foundation; and Bruce Bickell from PNC Charitable Trusts, for taking time out of their challenging schedules to visit the Center and learn a little more about what we do and why the renovation is so important to our future, and the future of current and potential clients. The workers are preparing to replace the carriage house roof, as well as scrape and repaint the exterior while we wait for our building permits to come through. The interior of the carriage house has already been gutted and prepped for the construction phase, which will turn the 19th century building into a 21st century NAEYC-accredited preschool! Interested in learning more? I'd love to show you around (if you don't mind dodging workmen!)--contact the Center at 412.741.4087, or email me! Look for photos and more detail in our upcoming newsletter, due out in May.
