is being used to renovate our back porch and make our building more wheelchair accessible. Click here to see photos of the installation in progress.
Two well-known local firms provided their expertise and talent to make this project a reality: HOLT Architects provided the design work and Welliver is doing the construction. (Special thanks toAndrew Gil of HOLT who worked on many version of the plans over the past few years). Both organizations generally work on much larger projects, but became involved with us
in a true spirit of community service.
We’ll have a dedication ceremony later this summer to more formally thank the individuals and organizations who contributed to this project. We’ll keep you posted!

Maxie’s Chicken Fried Fundraiser – big success!
On Tuesday June 24th, Maxie’s Supper Club collected $5 for every chicken (or tofu) dinner & $1 for every Bacchus beer sold. They also provided free music, great service & delicious food AND distributed T-shirts & “save the date” cards for our upcoming Walkathon/5K Run. The results? Everyone who attended had a great dinner & a great time, AND Maxie’s raised over $1000 for CRCFL! We love our neighbors!

Kudos for the superb gardening work at CRC. Amongst the lovely flowers in the two window boxes & the urn there are some surprises. Adding to the color & texture are parsley, marjoram & mint. She planted the mint — in particular — so visitors, staff and volunteers can add a fresh snip to their tea. Thanks, Cindy, for your visual and tasteful creativity. What a delight!
