We (have) already (finished) with the landscaping. We need funds to put up a fence for the ground and build two sightscreen. The old fence was taken down because it was rotten. We would just like for everyone to come out and support this fund-raising. It is a worthy cause; we need all the help we can get, because we are in the process of getting funds to assist us in the reconstruction of the fence for the venue”.
