We did it!

On April 30, 2010, SLOC completed the purchase of the new Performing Arts Center. The papers are all signed and thanks to your help we have met the remaining financial obligation.

As you might well imagine, there is a lot of work ahead to renovate the space and transform it from a church to a theatrical venue.

See below if you would like to help us make this happen by giving a monatary contribution.
