Foreclosure protest on Wednesday, October 14 is cancelled
The mortgage company postponed the foreclosure sale until December. We will fight for a modification or other alternative to foreclosure. But if they do try to foreclose in December, we'll be ready to raise our voices again.

Meeting for Lynn homeowners & tenants
