...and it isn't over yet!
Now the reasons for the over the top enthusiasm:
In case you haven't seen the multiple Facebook postings--- we have a location! It is at 15-17 Main St. in Canton above the MacFadden, Dier, Leonard Insurance Agency. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the gentleman who owns the property; he is offering it to us for no rent; we will need to pay for the heat and hot water, that is it. His reasoning...it is empty, we are a non-profit trying to do something good in Canton and he wants to support folks just starting out. Makes you want to go out and do something good for someone else...Lets pay this one forward in a BIG way.
This all came about in a very cosmic, interconnected, and amazingly perfect and ordained manner. Thank you to the Universe for taking such good care of us and thank you to all of the people who have put this on their radar and offered ideas and advice.
Please plan on attending and tell other folks to be at the Open House on the 19th. We want the place packed and rocking!
If you know someone who would love to share their passion with kids, let them know about Deep Root Center. We are looking for volunteers.
We need furnishings! You saw the photos---big empty space---needs some personality. MacKenzie has already volunteered to decorate.

If you have anything to donate, that we may be able to use, please let us know.
