We have entered the final stage of construction on the project. Currently we are wanting for the furnace / ducting, and plumbing lines to be finalized. Following this the volunteer crews will begin drywalling, plumbing fixtures, painting and trim work.
Large equipment is being moved to the facility for housing over the winter and the facility will be outfitted and ready to go by spring 2021. We hope that Senior Safari tours, trolley and wagon rides will be able to start at that point in time.
Donations are still needed to complete this project. You can support and help finish this facility by clicking on the donation form above.
