Congratulations to these guys - I know that they had a hard time getting "traditional" funding sources to help and they raised the money on their own. This will provide a meeting space for groups who need it. Good for you!

Good for them! Wasn't this the group that got "burned out" of the building by The Highland a couple years back?

Yes it was...and the SIOGA Club is not an agency (as in State). It is a club, period. No government connection other than accepting grants.

How about grabbing a chunk of that $1Million GE Money for such a worth while cause? How about Jim Ruberto?

They can hold their meetings at Jae's Spice. That building will be available very soon.
