Sidewalk Into BuildingsW love our facility and improving access for walkers and wheelchairs would make it even better. Coming into the building over gravel and rubber mats works for everyone but..it could be better, and keep our facility cleaner too!
Heating Plant For New Administration BuildingWe have completed construction and are using our new building. It is wonderful to have a place for families and volunteers to gather and relax during the lesson days. Indoor plumbing is also a treat! Now to complete it, we need a boiler to connect to our installed in-floor heat and keep the chill away.
