Dear Location19 members,
I have been worrying about how to tell
you all this for sometime, and as many of you have noticed, Anthony and I
have listed our house for sale. I will be graduating at the end of May,
and for employment and educational reasons, we have decided that we
will be relocating to Seattle, WA this summer.
This was a hard
decision to make, and we have been debating the idea since I started
school in 2006. But as you may know, the economy is still very bad, and
it is near impossible to find a job in my field of Interior Design, here
in Rochester, or NY State outside of NYC for that matter.
this time I do not have an administrative successor to take over the
operations of Location19. This site has become a much needed vehicle for
the 19th Ward, and I will do everything in my power to have it continue
into the far reaching future.
I understand that this news is a
shock to many of you, and It is not an easy thing for us either. The
19th Ward has been an incredible home for us, and you all will remain in
our hearts and minds, every time we think of Rochester.
also like to remind you, that without you all, Location19 is nothing.
It has been every 187 of you that have made Location19 what it is, and I
have faith that the site will continue to grow.
Thank you for
the opportunity to have helped build community with you.
around the Ward.
