Renovations are moving along at full speed! As of December 2015, all of the demolition has been done, most of the new walls have been framed, all of the many new windows and doors have been cut out of the concrete block exterior, and the new windows have been installed. New plumbing and electrical installation is nearly complete, as is installation of all new ductwork for the HVAC. Keep an eye on the “Renovations” page for updates and photos of our progress.
We need your help now more than ever – a number of unforeseen issues have popped up that need to be addressed, including additional beams, a water line that is not up to code and needs to be replaced, and a sewer line that needs to be replaced due to cracks and a partial collapse. While we expected, and budgeted for, some issues to arise, we did not expect to have to address issues outside of the building, and not of this magnitude. The water line replacement requires us to dig up the front parking lot, and the sewer line replacement requires us to dig up the back parking lot. Please consider sponsoring a much-needed item for the new center to help us offset these expenses, or buy a tile in our new dining room. Learn more about all of these options by downloading a form here. Thank you!
PASC OPEN Thursday, January 28
Both locations of the PASC will be OPEN on Thursday, January 28. The Pottstown School District has a two-hour delay, and we would normally be closed, but our parking lots are cleared. Please use caution in your own driveways and on sidewalks.
