Building Futures Update – December 30, 2016

Rapid & exciting progress continues at Charles Gardner Lane, where the construction and renovation of our Clubhouse began in September. Recently, the structural steel was erected for the addition in the front of the building that will house both a cafeteria as well as new offices and a bright, welcoming lobby. The roofing over the gymnasium and the swimming pool have been completed. Excavation to prepare for the new swimming pool is nearly complete and construction of the new pool will begin soon. Additionally, grading at the interior of the gym is nearing completion and the slap will be poured in January.

There is still time to support this project by making a pledge to the Building Futures Campaign. Payments on pledges may be spread out over up to five years. Those pledges of $2,500 or more will be permanently recognized on a donor wall in our new lobby. Please consider pledging your support today.

Excavation of the swimming pool is nearly complete. construction of the new pool will begin in a few weeks.

We continue to be thankful for our project partners: The Maggiore Companies, Design & Development Solutions, Century Bank, Leslie Saul & Associates and all the subcontractors who are working hard on our behalf. We are especially grateful for the countless donors and volunteers who have made this project a reality for our youth & teens.

2016 has been a¬†tremendous time for all hard-working volunteers who have dreamed of this project for many years and we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store. Happy New Year!
