Escola de Samba, Casa Samba

May 15, 2013 — In June we will have to relocate to a room that is approximately 1/3 the size of what we have at the Annunciation Center. Based upon the tour of the Lyons Center on Monday. There was no consideration of where we would store the drums and stilts for the programs that we offer to the kids and community.

We would like to thank you all for your support and ask that you continue to remind those that you know to assist us by signing this petition.

Elected and Appointed officials are suppose to be advocates for everyone in the community particularly those that can not advocate for themselves. In this case a representative of NORD Foundation stated that this would be a minor inconvenience for the people in the area. Office space can be gained in places that are designed to be offices. To spend money to retro-fit a recreational facility as an office space is taking money away from the children in addition to taking away a facility.
