Update on the Education Pavilion: The Frame is Complete

It took 49 dump truck loads to bring in the 490 yards of dirt needed to level the area. The prep-work for the foundation is complete, and the slab was recently poured: 46.5 cubic yards of concrete! It looks great, the contractor did a great job (especially his grandson). We have the painter, and other contractors ready to go. If all goes well, students will be able to have classes in the pavilion soon. The pavilion will be plumbed and wired but won’t have water and electricity right away.
