Why You Should Give

We are at the turning point in our project. Actually, we are a little past the turning point. We are rebuilding the rear 20 feet of the Stone Bank. This is HUGE! As our stone mason Joe says: “We are out of the hole.”

Next up: roughing in the plumbing, pouring the concrete floor in our new basement and then installing the floor joists and rebuilding the walls.

Your contribution will help make it happen. We need to match a $20,000 grant from the Historical Society of North Dakota.

Following is a scan of a nice feature about the Stone Bank on the Minot Daily News.

Sorry about the quality of the scan — we can’t access the story electronically.

Hit Story.1 Hit Story2 Send donations to Touchstones, Inc., P.O. Box 272, Bottineau, ND 58318. Or us our handy PayPal link.

Heck! Make a contribution and we will send you a copy of the article with your receipt.

Does your employer match your charitable contributions?

Touchstones is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and we will send you a receipt to get that match.

Let’s get the roof on!

Hope to see you Saturday at the Holiday Craft Fair at the Bottineau Armory.

Thirteen or 33

Posted in Life, Recommended Reading tagged , , at 5:32 am by stonebankblog

Writing a novel in a month! Doesn’t that sound crazy and intrguing? An old friend  has been doing this for a number of years as part of NANOWRIMO.

National Novel Writing Month. Crazy fun. She sometimes takes time from her novel writing to blog about the experience. Check it out. And best of all, she has a marvelous picture of a stone room within a room on her blog’s homepage. Very cool, and i like the symbolism of going deep inside to find a truth.

Here’s a link to The Tuxedo Files blog. Enjoy. Thirteen or 33.
