(Marcy and Mama)
The Old Church has been secured (for background on the old church search for "Old Church" in the blog search bar in the left corner) an amazing amount of work went into it from Community Club, the 7th Day Adventist, Peace Corps, Sunbuilt, and the Catholic Church.
The Double Doors one both sides were rebuilt with all new wood for the bottom half. The main double door to the square has been secured rebuilding the bottom panels with new and old wood strengthening the frame. The exterior single doors have been repaired and new lock has been purchased. The building has electricity and lighting now.
