Castle Roland — when you say the name, you can visualize a mystical imposing fortress sitting atop a seaside cliff. The only approach is across a narrow causeway. Archers are on the battlements, mounted knights are preparing to charge the sieging army. Defendable, impregnable, unapproachable.
Let us dispel that vision. Castle Roland is a strong and powerful fortress, but one built on dreams and imagination; where the gates are always open and all are welcome. The drawbridge never raises and none are ever turned away.
"There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds." ― G.K. Chesterton
We did it!
You did it!
Our Goal has been Met!
A very special shout out to Albert, Andrew, Brian(2), Edward, Eric, Gary(2), James(2), Jeffrey, Jim, John, Kenneth, LJ, LJ Jr, Michael, Michel, Mike, Paul, Richard(2), Rob, Robert, Ronald(2), Sam, Stephen, Verner, Yvonne, and Anonymous(2), who have all donated towards our new website.
Your support for our website creation project, has been above phenomenal!
Early Thursday evening (20 April), we discovered that the code for the "Donate" button had somehow become messed up. Clicking on it, took everyone to an error page. While we fixed the code in the Thursday newsletter template (and we really don't know how long ago this occurred), we couldn't resend the newsletter for fear that such a duplicate would be taken as spam by most, if not all, email servers.
Yet despite this, you persevered. You either donated through one of the prior newsletters or through this website. Because of your efforts, we have met our goal! We cannot thank you all enough!
