Mr. Michael Jacobus and Ms. Danielle Kokes, representing our new neighbors, Cherry Hill Associates, in Manchester, met with our building committee to discuss mutual benefits for our building plans. The Building Committee Chair-man, Gary Stabile, said he is pleased with the progress and wants everybody to know how much we appreciate the professional advice and guidance of Russ and Allen and everyone working with the Building Committee. Thank you for believing in our project.
