Celebration, Anticipation for Meadow Row North and Live Edge Cabins

At a July 22 Groundbreaking Community Picnic, we broke ground for Meadow Row North with a brief ceremony and a day of games, music, fun in the sun, and exploration of the building site. We’d like to thank photographers Michael Foley and David Stern, sponsors Pink Parasol Productions, Fine Balance Imaging, and Pure Indulgence, musicians Talia Marcus and Give Back Brass Band, and all our volunteers for making the day a success!

Four cabins are being constructed in the Maxwelton Valley by Kim Hoelting of Live Edge Woodworks, while Meadow Row North, designed by Ross Chapin Architects, is being constructed in Bayview by Jade Craftsman Builders. Installation onsite this winter means expanded program lodging expansion will be up and running in early 2018. We can’t wait to see the benefits of this added capacity for our program partners and participants.
