Thank you and congratulations

Well what a day. We are so humbled by the turnout today. A very quick head count at one stage yielded over 200, and there were many people that popped in for a visit during the day as well. There were 2 main goals of today: raising some additional funds to help us finish what Nick started by completing his album; and announcing the inaugural winner of the Grant. We still have to do a final count, but indications are that we have raised over $5,500.
