BIG Thanks for Gym Work Party: Plywood on Walls Completed!

Thanks so much for an awesome work day on Saturday, December 20. It was so gratifying to see up finish the plywood and we are now in time for the sheetrock company to come in on January 6. It was great to have so many coming to help. It reminded me of so many Center work days as we were building the Center and the School buildings.  Next is sheetrock, painting and hanging the ceiling light fixtures. Step by step. Thanks so much for helping the project to move.

Our sincere appreciation to:
