DEAR COMMUNITY MEMBER/ALLY:

THERE IS A DIRE NEED WITHIN THE COMMUNITY FOR AFFORDABLE SPACE THAT
EXISTING ENTITIES NOW NEED. WITH THAT IN MIND, AND THINKING OUTSIDE THE
BOX, I POSE TO THE COMMUNITY THAT YOU ALL, BE IT AN ORGANIZATIONAL
EFFORT, OR, AS A PRIVATE CITIZEN, YOU CONTACT THE CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE
ABOUT OFFERING THE BRANCH OFFICE, NEXT TO THE FRANKLIN LIBRARY, TO THE
COMMUNITY, IN PERPETUITY.

I WOULD ALSO SUGGEST THAT SUPPORT OF THIS IDEA WOULD STEM FROM THE
CHURCH’S STELLAR HISTORY WITH THE INDIAN PEOPLE, AS A WHOLE. BESIDES, IT
BEING THE STATE’S SESQUICENTENNIAL, IT WOULD BE GOOD PR.

TWO THINGS WOULD HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF THIS ACTION. ONE, IT WOULD ALLOW
FOR LESSER OVERHEAD, AS THERE WOULD BE NO COST ASSOCIATED WITH THE
PROPERTIES. TWO, WE, AS A COMMUNITY, WOULD THEN HAVE A FLAGSHIP RIGHT ON
FRANKLIN AVENUE, FOREVER.

SO, I’M ASKING AS MANY COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO WRITE TO THE DIRECTOR OF
CATHOLIC CHARITIES AND THE NEW BISHOP, JOHN NIENSTEDT. YOU CAN EITHER
CALL THE MAIN OFFICE, AT 651-291-4400. OR, BETTER YET, WRITE AN E-MAIL
AND SEND YOUR LETTER TO THE ARCH BISHOP AT nienstedtjc@archspm.org OR
FATHER ESTREME, AT ceo@ccspm.org

THE SITE COULD POSSIBLY FACILITATE A NEW HOME FOR NACC, THE WOLVES DEN,
INTER-TRIBAL ELDERS, ETC. I WOULD FURTHER POINT OUT THAT A NEW
PROFESSIONAL TYPE KITCHEN WAS BUILT IN THE BASEMENT OF THE LARGER OF THE
TWO BUILDINGS. WITH WALK-IN COOLER AND FREEZER. MEANING SOME AWESOME
FEASTS COULD BE GENERATED OUT OF THIS SITE.

YOUR COLLECTIVE HELP WOULD MAKE THIS POSSIBILITY HAPPEN.

PIDAMIYA,

MALCOLM <>((:-)
