New Roof Installed

Thanks to generous community financial support, the Clinton Community Hall now has a brand-new roof! The roof was installed in late August 2021 by G&I Roofing Solutions.

The previous roof consisted of three layers of asphalt shingles, installed on top of each other over the past 60 years. In addition to the old shingles reaching the end of their useful life, the multiple layers added a lot of unnecessary weight on top of the building. And a persistent leak, while minor, was a reminder that the roof needed to be dealt with.

In exploring options for a replacement roof, the hall’s board of directors looked into several types of roofing materials and determined that metal panels would provide the best return on investment. With a metal roof, there was no need to install a new under-layer of plywood panels – panels that would have been a considerable expense with the current high prices of lumber. The metal roof will last longer into the future, will require less maintenance, and should be more environmentally-friendly to dispose of through recycling at the end of its life.

Hanson’s Building Supply generously provided the materials for the new roof at cost, and worked with the manufacturer (Champion Metal) for an additional $1,000 discount on the panel costs. G&I Roofing Solutions installed metal roofing on the small shed behind the hall at no additional cost.

And the Clinton community really came through in their financial support to make this project happen!

Over this past summer, 86 individuals, families, foundations and businesses donated $23,200 to help cover the cost of the new roof.

Thank you again to everyone who helped keep this community resource safe and sound for future generations. A full list of supporters can be found after the slideshows below.

February Update

We are happy to report that we have doubled our membership for 2021! The hall now has 223 members, and we are so grateful to everyone who has joined in support of the Clinton Community Hall.

While we are disappointed that the hall continues to be closed to indoor gatherings and rentals, the board is continuing to focus on behind-the-scenes work to ensure that the hall is ready to open for more of the community gatherings that we all miss. In the meantime, we have plans for a variety of safe activities this coming year and are anxious to share them with you.

Love Is All Around

What’s been happening at the hall lately…

  • Clinton Holiday Lights – Did you notice our new holiday light display this past December? A big shout-out to Jerry Beck for hanging the lights up in the big tree! Going forward, the hall is teaming with the Clinton Community Council and Chamber of Commerce to light up Clinton even more in the coming years and provide a welcome sight for those journeying through our town.
  • Check out our Facebook page – You will find photos and news items to keep track of all that is happening at the hall. Link
  • Our ever-changing reader board – We’re working to make the hall’s sign fun and informative for community members and visitors to the island.
  • Greater grounds – We did more than just paint in 2020! The next time you are at the hall you might notice that we have added parking curbs and landscaped the walkway to provide clear access to the main doors. We have replaced the rickety crawlspace covers along the walkway with substantially stronger covers too. The pathway from the parking lot to Humphrey Road has been completely renewed for your safety and use.
  • Staying safe – Grant funding allowed us to obtain additional cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer stations to keep us all safe as we slowly move to our new normal.

Get Involved

This hall exists because of members, volunteers, sponsors and donors like you. If you want to join others in supporting this historic building and community, let us know today!
