Mortgage Principal Paydown Update
Thank you for your contributions toward the mortgage principal paydown. As of May 24, we received $39,262 in contributions to the mortgage. We are rounding up the total to $40K from the Memorial Fund. Your generous donations enables us to keep the monthly mortgage payments in line with our 2022 budget, despite the increase of interest rates for the mortgages. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
