TRUSTEES UPDATE: Repairs on the Education Wing roof and boiler maintenance have been completed this month. Special thanks for keeping contributions up to date to help with building upkeep. The next project we are working on is the sidewalk railing. We currently have $2,933.60 in contributions toward this project. However the work will not start until we have the full amount of $4,250 raised. Please consider making a contribution to this fund. It would be great if the railing could be put in before winter.
