When we were children and we looked ahead to an exciting event, anticipation was part of the whole experience. Waiting seemed long, but the anticipation brought some pleasure. If we were anticipating a vacation trip, we would begin imagining the differences we would see. We would try and imagine what we would be doing that we had never done before. And sometimes it was actually hard to sit still when the anticipation was bubbling inside.
Since we have grown up, we tend to want to display a blasé calmness, that will portray to others that we are on an even keel and we are no longer children to be thrown into disarray simply due to anticipation.
Well – I can tell you that the staff has abandoned any kind of blasé calm and you will definitely see us smiling, and some of us (not mentioning names!) are having trouble sitting still and not giggling out loud. Yes – we are excited!!
The official Sod Turning will be Tuesday, September 20th at 5:00 pm. Everyone is welcome. Loraine has provided herself with a pink shovel and a pink hard hat for the occasion so you can’t miss her. The fence around the construction area is in place and some stakes are in the ground. So it really is REAL! Next week the big machinery is coming and digging will commence.
We know that there will be inconveniences all around – both for staff and for you, our patrons. We will strive to overcome them as much as we can – and otherwise we will choose to grin and bear it. The end result will be worth every bit of inconvenience.
We want to keep you up to date, so look at the pictures I have included and we will post new pictures often.
