Stone Quote No. 5

Posted in Bottineau, Endangered buildings, Stone Quotes, Updates tagged , , , , at 11:49 pm by stonebankblog

For your Stone Bank blogger, it was disappointment for lunch, when the call about a grant  came at about lunchtime.

As the Rolling Stones famously put it … “you can’t always get what you want.”

And no, we didn’t even get a little bit of what we wanted. A representative of AgriBank called to say that although the Stone Bank is an interesting project that they had decided against sharing their oil-lease riches with us in the form of a grant. Seems that even though the grant information said they were looking for projects of cultural and historic value that there were, uh,  constraints on that.

Let’s just say that the instructions were vague. The result? In the short term,  the Stone Bank won’t have  the financial boost needed to help move the project along.

That brings us to (the very fitting)  Stone Quote #5.

Stone Bank's Stone Quote No. 5

Inscribed at the International Peace Garden’s Peace Chapel — quite near the Stone Bank.

That Alexander Graham Bell was one smart cookie.

No regrets! We will just move along and keep working on this great building. A door will open — and it will ROCK!

In the meantime, tell all your friends, relatives and passersby that they can do what AgriBank didn’t do. They can support the restoration of the Stone Bank.  There are lots of details on our website: StoneBank.org.

Chin up. Tally ho.  Thanks for reading the Stone Bank Blog!
