Since the beginning
of this year the complete second floor of Unit 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 of the
East Crescent has been poured. The construction crew
has worked tirelessly to accomplish this task. All the
workshoppers and volunteers who have stayed on contributed greatly
in the whole process. [Photo: Nadia Begin & text: SA]
