We Bought the Land!
Come celebrate with us!
We are very excited and pleased to announce the purchase of the final parcel of land needed to build Ravens' Roost! Purchase of the remaining, 4.1-acre parcel means that we now control the entire 6.3 acres. This is a huge step forward, which frees us up to focus on the next steps: recruiting more members so we can move ahead with construction next spring.
