"We want to purchase another house on the street to turn into a workshop for furniture restoration and bike repair. We're very close to the Greenline, so if kids learn how to repair and maintain bikes, some of them will be prepared to apprentice in bicycle shops when they're older. In addition to these projects, we also offer tutoring after school. In the summer, there will be activities here all day every day, including tutoring, art, and field trips. I am just overwhelmed and amazed at how everything has fallen into place. We've been able to get what we've needed when we've needed it.
"On Friday evening, March 27, there will be a fundraiser / art show for the Carpenter Art Garden at Flicker Street Studio (74 Flicker St.) from 5:30 to 8:00. There will be children's art for sale as well as pieces by some of the artists who have conducted classes here for both kids and adults. Melissa Dunn, Danny Broadway, and others will have work for purchase. We hope people will come out and support these kids and this community."
