This building is being torn down to build 
a new 12,450 square foot Community Room. 
This is part one of a three phase project.
We have outgrown our old one.

Early in the "destruction" Phase...

The new building will hold 450 people.
We will have a variety of entertainment and educational programs.

I wouldn't want him to take a bite out of me.

We have already begun fundraising for the second phase 
which will house a "cafe",
 a new gift shop / general store and bank. 

This picture was taken several weeks after the first ones.
If all goes as planned , 
the "destruction" will be done in this week .

The concrete foundation will be poured  followed by
 the framing of the new building.
I'll keep you posted.

Hello Missy, the new building sounds like it will be wonderful. Sounds like it will be big with a new community room, cafe, shop and a bank? Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

I always find it sort of sad to see a building or house come down. Even if needed. But I'm sure your new one will be very nice; sounds like lots of amenities. As a matter-of-fact, there is a new house going up on my block. Kind of strange in a neighborhood that's over 80 years old! Will be interesting.

Missy, That will be a nice new building to have gatherings in. I wonder how old the build was that was taken down. One of our old schools was taken down and a new civic center put in houses the boys/girls club and the senior center, exercising facilities and meeting rooms. A gym also. The monies for our project came from one of our teachers and her husband , who was a city judge. So it's a tribute to them and their families. I hope you get to enjoy the new place lots. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Amazing to watch the DEconstruction as much as will be to see the RE NEW construction . . .
Happy you didn't get eaten up by that opened face monster!
(I thought of you yesterday when I ate some chocolate covered pecans . . . sorry you weren't with me!)

Cant make an omelet without breaking a few eggs - and the same seems to go for new buildings!

Hope all goes to plan.
