Now into the 15th year of their re-construction goal ABC No-Rio suffered a series of set backs with construction cost bidding in 2012. What seemed likely became again a new goal.  More money will be needed to begin the demolition and new construction. Seems like a good time to have a festival/benefit/carnival.
