Happy Easter
Faith, Hope and Joy

Happy Easter!  We are going to greet the month of April by continuing the renewal of Carr’s.  We are working every minute of every rain-free day and are pleased that the footers are in place and the block is being laid for our new office and laundry.  It’s been a long time coming and it’s coming along quite well.  We are anticipating opening in late summer and can’t wait to see your smiling faces when we do!

We're making progress!!
