Raise The Roof Campaign

Sept 2021 update: thanks to community support, the Hall now has a new roof. See here for more details…

The hall was built in 1965, and is at an age where we are facing a series of infrastructure updates necessary to keep this community resource safe, sound and usable for subsequent generations.
Why is a new roof necessary?
  • The original roof is nearly 60 years old. Over those many years, two subsequent layers of asphalt shingles have been added to the original layer. This means that in addition to the failing shingles, there is a lot of unnecessary weight on the structure. The underlying base of plywood will also need to be replaced.
  • The roof now has two places where it is leaking into the building. And it is showing other signs of failing.
  • We need to replace the roof to keep the building safe and sound, and to preserve it for community use well into the future.
  • Once we fix the roof, we can address other infrastructure needs such as the replacing the single-pane windows, and interior updates such as addressing the worn wooden floor in hall.
How will we pay for it?
  • We have received several updated bids for the roof replacement. We estimate that we will need around $41,000 for a new metal roof and gutters based on the current estimates.
  • The board has been saving money since 2016 for the roof replacement, and we now have $16,000 set aside for this project. That is still a long way from what’s needed, and we are running out of time as the roof continues to fail. It’s time to accelerate fundraising for this project.
  • In the past, our yearly capital fundraiser has been Mayfest. Due to the pandemic, we did not have Mayfest in 2020 or 2021, and so have missed out on that revenue and the opportunity to set money aside for the roof replacement.
  • In 2019, we also had a crisis with our septic system, which required some of the money set aside for a roof replacement. Generous donations from our community helped to put in a new septic system.
