I'm checking in with you again to provide a quick update of our progress. In November, we held our third annual meeting of the board in Granada, Nicaragua. It was a great, productive trip! I'm attaching a copy here of the Chairman's report that I delivered to the group.
A couple of brief updates from that meeting:
• We pushed our construction start date to January 2010 to give us time to do some additional fine-tuning to the plan. If all goes according to expectations, that should take us to a completion date of October 2010. Spread the word and help us gain support!
• We are very pleased to add to our Board of Directors Dennis de Vreede of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Dennis is currently CFO of the international real estate development company REDEVCO and has been an Advisor to Clinica Verde during the past year. Dennis has been a tremendous asset to our project, spreading the word and cultivating interest in our work outside of Latin America and the U.S. He'll be helping us with the financial side of Clinica Verde and heading up development in Europe. Welcome, Dennis!
In addition to the design and construction work that's taking place, we're working hard to raise $60K more to complete clinic construction. We could really use your help and support! Please let me know if you have any ideas.
Thanks again for being such stalwart supporters. I am so very grateful for you!
All the best,
Susan Dix Lyons
