We are pleased, but not surprised, at the outpouring of support for this Campaign from our neighbors throughout Mount Washington. Among the 744 Petition signers are 110 individuals who are residents or business owners in the neighborhood. Particularly gratifying is this email exchange between the owner of the Mount Washington Tavern to the president of the Mount Washington Improvement Association:

By way of introduction, I own the Mt Washington Tavern. I just read the latest MWIA newsletter and took notice of the article about Clayworks. I had no idea that Sarah McCann had resigned or that they were struggling financially. I was very sorry to read that news.
The end of the article states that the community could be expected to rally together to assist. I think that is exactly right and we’d certainly like to be apart of it. We are very proud of the work we do raising funds for another local institution, Mt Washington Pediatric Hospital. Clayworks has been a terrific neighbor in the village and rightfully deserve our support.
We would welcome talking with anyone from MWIA to try and come up with ways to help them out.

Thanks very much. I’ve cced the founders of Clayworks who are leading an effort to keep Clayworks in Mt. Washington. Hopefully you can connect and brainstorm further.
