Baseball has opening day and Broadway has opening night, but neither compares to the Grand Opening that made the front page of the Sassistas! hometown newspaper:
Yes, the SassistaLand East Arts Center restroom now has it all: walls, lighting, granite countertops and double mirrors and TWO stalls. This article went on to reveal other new "perks": two water fountains. Joan Jacobs, the chair of our town's special projects committee says, "The dream [for restroom rescue] began in 2009, but turned nightmarish when estimates came to $54,000." Hard work and publicizing the need, however, led to donations from many sources, "including over 100 members of the general public".
The ribbon-cutting ceremony included a time for sharing horror stories of the old restroom, including this one about the toilet tank running: "Instructions were taped to the door of one stall telling the person that if this toilet kept running, they should go into the other stall and flush it to stop the running."
The Sassistas! can't wait to flush!
