Community Center Update
Construction Update Flyer
We are so very excited to get this project started. We will continue to update as plans become finalized, but our goals and plans will be working on purlins in the attic, returning the steeple, putting new concrete in the basement to leave room for new bathrooms, and updating stairs/accessibility.

**The Center will be unavailable for use through the remainder of 2024. We will look to continue our regular family programs and welcome everyone back in the new year!

Proceeds will go towards the Community Center Reconstruction Project. We are rolling with getting this building all fixed up, but we still need your help!

Here's a brief update on the building:
We have replaced all the outdated electrical and gotten new lighting (new outside lighting coming).
This summer the steeple is coming back, the perlins will be fixed, structural work in the basement and prep for bathrooms.
Coming next: new bathrooms, ADA accessibility, repainting the front room.

Thanks for all your help, Fairfax!!
