$40,000 Donated or Committed

Halfway to our $80,000 Goal


Gifts to Date

We currently have $40,000 in contributions and commitments since the campaign started on October 4.  We are halfway to our goal of $80,000 in 80 days!

The PUC Administrators are solidly behind this project and have each made a significant contribution. Several alumni, during the annual phonaton, have designated their gifts to the Albion Restroom Project. Both Larry Provonsha and I have committed a donation by the end of the year.

We need you to reach this goal. Remember, for each dollar you give, a generous donor will match it dollar for dollar. As a Friend of Albion, please include our project on your Christmas gift list. 


Work Bee Progress

During our November work bee the cedar siding was nearly completed. Duayne Witzel and Larry Provonsha have committed to finishing the job.

Several brick retaining walls were built to keep the water and mud in check as well as some drain basins to funnel water into storm drain pipes. Considerable grading around the cabins was completed for runoff purposes and future landscaping.


December Plans and Work Bee

Beginning December 3, the furniture and old cabinets will be removed from the cabins in the lower camp which shuts down the camp for all of December and January.

Evan Witzel, along with his crew, will be hanging the dry wall and doing the taping and texturing from December 4-14. Evan is a professional dry wall contractor from Middletown who will be donating a portion of his services.

Our next work bee is scheduled for December 17-21. All the rooms will be spray painted and back-rolled. Volunteers are needed to mask all the windows and other objects in the rooms that we don't want painted. We are negotiating with several professional painters to help us during that week. Your help is necessary!

Floor covering installation is scheduled December 24 to January 11. We are negotiating with a professional floor covering mechanic to lay the vinyl in the dorm cabins and the floor coverings in Vanessa and Capella. 


January Work Bee

By necessity, the January 13-18 will be a big work bee. All of the finish work will commence -- cabinets, interior doors, trim, lighting fixtures and plumbing fixtures. We will then begin moving back into the cabins so we can be ready for the spring season.


Remember this Challenge Incentive

Woody Ross is offering a number of his paintings as an incentive to donate to the $80,000 in 80 days campaign. For gifts of $5,000 up to $9,999, he will give you a choice of several of his smaller framed and matted paintings. For gifts of $10,000 or more he is offering his larger paintings. Refer to the November 5 newsletter for photos of these paintings that are hanging in the dining room at Albion.
