Strange is fortune that I would stumble upon these pages in the midst of organizing a group (and event) aimed toward celebrating women through art and advocacy. I have only been able to scrape the surface of the toolbox chapters, but for a group with an overabundance of creativity and enthusiasm and a decided lack of organizational experience, what I have read thus far may prove to be tremendously useful. I thank you for making this public information.

I have deveoloped a 32 unit independent senior living project in Kailua-Kona. Instead of borrowing money to complete the units, I thouhght a one time grant could be rolled over in perpetuity so that some of the lower income qualified clients could live there. I would rather plow back an equivalent in interest paymetns into the community rather than a lender.

Hello Jenette, Am I the first person from the Lyon to send you anything here? Can your organization help me buy a house? I would like 1 story walk-out ranch, 3 bedrooms would be nice, tho 2 will suffice, 1 1/2 baths and a little garden in the back. Maybe a sauna or a hot-tub right next to a pool (with a deep-end and a 3 meter diving board). It must have zoysia grass and many iris flowers all around the house. A wine cellar would be nice, but maybe that's a little over the top. Well anyway it's the day after the big 4th of July party at Tom's house (I wish you had been there) and I can't think of any really witty things to say, oh I just remembered, do you have any tatoos? Hope I see you at the Lyon tonight. ;}
