October has been a month of HUGE progress and change at camp. Thanks to our donors and supporting organizations, we have begun a large portion of the work on all aspects of our fire safety upgrades.
In the past 5 weeks, we have seen…
A new hood, fire suppression system and ovens at Pearce Hall (you can almost smell Mama Bear’s baking from here!)
Metal doors installed at the East Camp portables, in the dorms and in some of the cabins (thanks to the volunteers who came out for door day!)
New wiring for exit signs, smoke detectors, fire alarms and smoke detectors (our installer Jeremy is a great guy!)
Insulating the dorm roof and adding fire separation in between the two levels (Flash’s new superhero name is Capt. Dusty!)
Moving the offices, tearing up the carpets and boxing off the door to what will now be Joe’s office (Check out the old wall paper in what used to be the medic station!)
These are your donations at work. You are responsible for our growth, making camp even more safe, and for Pearce Williams continuing on for generations to come.
November is shaping up to be just as busy. We’ve got some big announcements coming up about more work on site, so stay tuned!
