Bathroom Fundraiser
    You may have noticed but the DAAC bathrooms have been out of order since November! Due to oversight by contractors during renovations, we've discovered out our plumbing lines to for the DAAC do not connect to the city sewer. Gaia House Café has been graciously allowing us to use their facilities during events and rentals. 
      The projected cost for a solution that would tie the DAAC lines into the rest of the building is over $10,000. The DAAC is trying to fundraise to help offset the costs of the building owners. The solution will hopefully be completed by end of spring.
