The lease is not extendable will expire in the Summer of 2006. By that time, we need to raise enough money to buy seven tables. (~$7,500) So, please make your contribution. No amount is too small. All contributions will be recorded here on the website. So far, we are a little bit behind at the rate we are receiving money. If you have any idea to raise money, please do not hesitate to talk to me.
