Building Repair Project Gathers Steam.
The Building Committee has been hard at work at the major effort to repair water damage to the south wall of our building and replace the roof. A building engineer has done an extensive analysis of the building. We tested for asbestos and thankfully found none. Some sweat equity (thanks John Neil) removed the ceiling to expose damaged joists. Bids have been received to repair the joists, replace the roof and redo the masonry on the south wall. They are currently under review. Financing possibilities are being explored.
This is a major project and will be very expensive for an organization of our size. A fund raising effort is about to enter its "quiet phase" and our members will be hearing more in the days to come.
The Shambhala Center has a 40-year history of rising to the occasion as a community when a major financial need has arisen. All who appreciate the contribution our Center makes to the community will surely express the generosity we need to accomplish the task at hand.
Watch this space for further developments in the days to come.
