The first item to be tackled was the removal of the Fireplace Room ceilings. They were sprayed with "sparkle" texture a long time ago, which contained asbestos fibers. Certified remediation of the asbestos is complete.
The handicap ramp to the new west entrance and concrete pad in front of the steps is being poured.
In keeping with the quality of the original building, we're plastering the ceilings and walls.
Renovations of the first floor - including the Fireplace Room, first floor office, hallway and bathrooms - is in full swing. The "Club" will be open during Homecoming weekend so that you can see the progress. We have so much more work to do, and you'll see that during Homecoming too. Remember that this is a multi-phase, multi-year project. IT'S BIG! And we'll need more donations and cooperation from the community to fulfill our mission of getting this beloved building back to 21st century usefulness.
We'll post more photos as we progress. In the mean time, please consider making a donation so that we can continue the work. Thank you for your support!
New steps to the west entrance being poured.
Much of the electrical work in the building is still 'knob and tube' from 1918. We're bringing the building up to 21st century standards that will support modern technology.
