JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. What have you been up to?
JOE: Busy, busy, busy. Along with smaller projects. GO ART! is getting
ready for the grand reopening of our building next Friday.
CALLIOPE: How grand is it?
JOE: The building was built for the Bank of Genesee in the early 1830′s
to finance the Holland Land Purchase which I studied in grammar school.
Later the Batavia Club bought it and used it for many years. A few years
ago they donated it to GO ART!. We recently completed renovation of the
historic building and are planting flowers in final preparation to
formally share it with the public next week.
CALLIOPE: Sounds exciting.
JOE: It is for us. I rummaged around in the basement and found original
dirt floors from the 1830′s, several artifacts from over the years and
old programs from events we sponsored.
CALLIOPE: Anything mysterious?
JOE: Yes. the most mysterious finding is an old safe on rollers. No one
has been able to open it despite various efforts. We don’t know how far
back it dates or what it might contain.
CALLIOPE: It’s fun to speculate sometimes.
JOE: We think so. Talk to you again.
