Residents of Cherokee and members of Cherokee’s Clinic Fundraising Committee recently held an extremely successful yard sale, raising almost $30,000 thanks to the generosity of a couple who owned a home in Little Harbour for 15 years. The couple recently sold the home and donated all of its contents to the clinic’s committee. These funds are now being put to good use as the construction work continues on the new clinic.
All of the building’s windows and exterior doors have recently been installed and now the outside of the building is being plastered. Although the clinic appears to be ready for occupancy, there is still a long way to go.
However, with donations from The Abaco Club at Winding Bay, a close Cherokee neighbor, much of the plumbing, air conditioning and electrical fixtures are ready to be installed. These finishing installations will continue after the inside walls and flooring are completed.
This is just another effort by the people of Cherokee, for the people of Cherokee, with help from friends.
