Thank you, Roger Peterson and your construction crew for putting our basement back together and assuring the safety of the building for years to come. Thanks also to Roger and Pam for donating fans and other items to the project. There are new lights in the main area as a result of the generous donation of Kevin Dobson of KD Maintenance and NEA, thank you! At this writing everything is back in the library and being cleaned and put away; helping to move things in were Sheldon Albertson, Bryan Bruch, Karen and Chuck Bruch, Pat Bruch, Travis Bruegger, Kevin Dobson, Janice Hales, Leslie Hammond, Ted Holman, Paul Luker and Rusty and Skye Martin – we extend a huge thank you! Our gratitude is also extended to Bob and Polly Johnson for the use of their trailer, you literally saved the day!
