For those that have been suffering through this unusually cold and snowy winter season, its effects have taken a toll on many of us.  The sub-zero Temperatures along with power outages have caused frozen water pipes which have burst and caused thousands of dollars in damages.  According to Hall Civic president, Randy
Randy Cropped pictureMarsh, the new section of the Hall School building has also been a victim of this cold winter and has several pipes that froze and burst and caused much water damage  to the interior of the building.

Fortunately, we have good insurance on the building and the insurance company has been quick to repair and replace the damaged portions of the building.  There was damage to the ceiling tiles, floor tiles and also damage to some walls.  According to President Marsh, the work is being completed in a timely manner and although the damage was large, we did not lose use of the building.  Marsh said this water damage is frustrating but only a minor inconvenience to our overall operation.


On a brighter note, we are looking forward to spring, which is right around the corner!

We are currently making arrangements for some much needed,  landscaping to the front entrance of the building.  Randy estimates the cost to betulip about $10,000 and plans are being made to raise the funds for this project.  Anyone interested in making a tax deductible, donation toward this venture, is encouraged to visit our web site at  You can make a donation there, by simply clicking the donation button and pay by credit card or PayPal.

President, Randy Marsh, said  “This project is going to add a nice, new look, to the front entrance of the building.”
