Holiday Cheer at Hathorn House as renovations begin!

On Dec. 21 the new owners of the house, Arek and Sylwia Kwapinski and friend Nikki Grzegorzewski met with Lily McLean, Kevin Hathorn, and Sue Gardner of the “Hathorn Friends” to hang wreaths donated by Lily to celebrate the season and and the wonderful progress so far on bringing the house back to life.

Thank you Lily! And thank you Arek, Sylwia, Nikki, and Ash Morgan of Corwin’s!

Here’s the fence “dressed” and a few shots of the amazing transformation that is taking shape with a lot of hard work and patience– not to mention cash!
