Looking for our next great project! - Perfect Duluth Day

Looking for our next great project!

My fiancé and I just moved to town, and we’d love to get connected with a community of folks working to do good things.  Helping people breath life into their dreams is what we do, and we’ve got a whole arsenal of skills at your disposal.  We just finished starting a distillery up in Leadville, Colorado, and we’re looking for our next project!

Our focus is making a difference. We take on projects that make a real contribution – improving the lives of individuals/families/organizations and enriching the community. It’s an incredible experience to work with people who are passionate about what they do! If you know of any individuals/organizations who could use a hand in bringing good things into being … we’d love to hear about it!  You can post a response or contact us directly at christina.nohre @ gmail.com.

I'd like a garage built for our house on the hillside.

You've probably already heard of Duluth's distillery startup, Vikre Distillery.

To clarify and to make this garage project more appealing and eligible for grants and low-interest financing, the third stall would be outfitted as a neighborhood woodcraft shop and distillery.

Considering the dearth of alterative proposals, when do we begin?

I'm guessing this is an advertisement for services, but in case I misread it, here is the Minnesota Council of Non-Profits, which has a Northeast area/division that may help you network appropriately: http://www.minnesotanonprofits.org/

Soren, check out the film Young Adult.  Patton Oswalt has an excellent distillery set up in his garage. That's the look you should go for, I think.

Thank you, Emmadogs, for the great idea! I had been planning to replicate the Breaking Bad distillery here on my Hillside alley, but I'm going to go with your suggestion.

IF, that is, that this flies with my funding agents and sponsors, Christina and fianc_.

Speaking of whom, I haven't heard from them s

Holy shit! You guys helped with Two Guns? That place is amazing. I live in Denver and every day I wish I was drinking moonshine in Leadville. Hope you find another cool project to work on.

Hey, a big thanks to all the fine folks who got in touch with us!  We've met some really incredible people, and I just can't tell you how much we appreciate the warm welcome to Duluth!  

The idea for this post stemmed from our experience of really becoming part of a community back in Colorado.  It was pretty incredible to have that kind of connection, and we wanted to be more proactive this time in working to build it.  I think a big part of creating that is having something to bring to the table, which is why I included some of our skills/areas of knowledge.  

Soren d'Hillside:  We appreciate your sense of humor!
JohnBearGrease:  Thanks for the heads up on Vikre - we'll definitely check it out!
Rhetoricguy: Appreciate the suggestion, but we were after something other than networking.
Maria:  Awesome!!  We love that you had a blast up at Two Guns!
