The New Education Pavilion is Nearly Completed!
It took 49 dump truck loads to bring in the 490 yards of dirt needed to level the area and the slab required 46.5 cubic yards of concrete! It looks great, the contractor did a great job (especially his grandson). The pavilion is plumbed and wired but won’t have water and electricity right away. Hopefully students will be able to have classes in our amazing pavilion as soon as the Visitor Center opens!
Thank you to everyone who supported this magnificent project!
