The board has been busy working on the GHCF Grant and Seabrook Foundation Grant. There has been interest generated by local construction companies who are looking to bid on the arena construction. Building materials are on backorder until November. Our first official public presentation with the Hoquiam School District is set for Thurs., Aug. 31st. Wanda and Pam have just returned back from Bozeman with certificates in hand! This is the first phase of officially moving forward into creating a qualified center. We discussed the possibility for a future fundraiser that could generate a great amount of funding. The Horse Prayer website began development and the email and business cards are now available for use for connection with the community.
