Community Center Project Update
The Blairstown Rotary 75th Anniversary Project to update the Givens-Belet Memorial Hall on Hope Road is making significant progress.
So far, we've gone from this...
To this...
The old ramp has been removed and replaced by a mobility lift.  New stairs and entry way have been installed.  Repairs have been made to the roof and framing.  The building has been insulated.  New siding has been installed and gutters will be installed shortly.  The new entry walk and wheelchair path to the ramp have been installed.  Landscaping and a handicapped parking area will be completed in the near future.  Thanks to Paul Klein Construction and Casey Masonry for their expertise and professional work.  In addition to over $60,000 being invested by Rotary, we have received support from Siddhachlalam, Blair Academy, Blue Ridge Lumber, Agens Stone, H&S Enterprises, Newbaker Funeral Home, Ray O'Brien Architects, Blairstown Township, The Rotary Foundation and additional individual contributors.  In total, over $100,000 has been invested in this project.
The outside work is nearing conclusion.  The retaining walls have been installed, the foundation painted and the planing area mulched.  Thanks to the Blairstown DPW for building the walls, and to the volunteer students from Blair Academy, who painted the foundation and spread the mulch.  Blair also provided the mulch and paint.
Now it's your opportunity to help support the Community Center project.
Community Center Entryway Memorial Brick Space
A memorial brick space is being installed in the Community Center front entry area.  The bricks are laser engraved and are very durable.  Your brick will become part the center for many years.  The brick space will be located between the entry walk and wheelchair path, directly in front of the building.  It will be easily visible to all who are using the Center.
The area to the right of the main walkway and stairs is the location of the Memorial Brick Space.
